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"

This is most like due to automatic exposure. To turn this off, find the PostProcessVolume in your Scene Outliner or make one, if it does not exist. In the Details panel under Auto Exposure change the Min and Max Brightness to the same value. You can also disable that from drop down menu of the viewport.

You can increase the brightness of the lights to compensate. Also, the min and max brightness settings for auto exposure will help. Lower the settings for darker maps where you want a single light to be more intense. Play around with the settings and see what gives the best feel for your map.
