Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Diferent lightning on blueprints and single meshes

Does anyone know why after building the light the interior of my apartment is all red (probably because of bouncy) when the architecture is a blueprint (walls, ceiling, floor,...) plus sofa blueprinted, while the same room made of single meshes (non-blueprinted) is getting the right lightning? It's the same light configuration on both rooms with default collision on meshes.

Note: I deleted the reflection sphere after building the light and before the screenshot (so sphere is not the problem)

Are you sure your blueprinted meshes are not set to movable? They will ignore the baked lighting if they are movable. If they need to be movable, you can check Light as if Static in the Lighting settings.

That was exactly it, Sigfreud. Didn't know the default value for blueprints was set to "movable". Just changed it to static and worked like a charm. Thanks for the fast reply, btw. =)
