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"

Grass tool culling broken


Grass Tool isn't culling the meshes properly. Meshes happen to appear/disappear in quads instead of appearing/disappearing individually. This bug might be specific to some specific landscape sizes only i.e in my case 1009x1009.

Repro steps: 1. Create a landscape with the given settings as in the image. 2. Setup a material with grass node. 3. Use a mesh in grass node with high density. 4. Reduce cull distance to 5000. 5. Fly forward/backward to see the meshes culling.

It's a bit sad to see that this was existing in 4.15 and I'm experiencing the same issue with 4.19.

That is not an issue. The grass is expected to cull in clusters like this. To get a gradual circular fade, you would need to use PerInstanceFade material expression in your grass material.
