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"

Weird Object Lighting problem

Hello guys! I have a weird problem with my corridor I created for testing, it's a simple corridor made with a single plane in Blender, collision works great and all, but the lighting isn't as I expected... Is seems like it recognizes only one side of the mesh and not the other, creating some weird artifacts with the lighting... I tried to duplicate the whole object and flipped the Normals in Blender... Fixed it, but it also made some weird artifacts with the lighting, and I don't want to create additional polygons as it may reduce the performance and it's a pain in the *** for me to do the UV Mapping...

Hope anyone can help me with that... I just want to make a simple corridor...

There is a tickbox on each mesh instance called something like Shadow Two Sided. It should help.
