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"

Hello!

You may want to rebuild you lighting (build-->build lighting only), as in default settings lightmaps are prebaked, hence surfaces may still look bright, while there should be no lightsource.

You can achieve "Moon light" -type of lighting by having pale, white "sun", and more appropriate skybox.

Hope this helps, -DoctorPC

Make sure you have set your view mode to "Lit" (it may sound counter intuitive, but that's how it works :P).

It is already.

Only thing that can come into my mind, is hat you're using skybox which contains a lightsource by itself (or your monitor is set to extreme brightness). If removing skybox AND rebaking the lights (after removing the skybox) doesn't help, I will go ahead and try it myself.

I set source light to point upward and add a cube under terrain. its ok to continue...

"ts ok to continue", what you mean by that? And if you just set the light upwards, try removing it, and/or see how high your global lighting is, as you may want to decrease it.

Well, I assume we could mark this "resolved" now?

Thank you for your help.

No problem, hopefully you are now making progress in your (hopefully not-too-similar-to-mine) project :)

umm.. Is it just me, or did you "Unresolve" this..? If so, what has happened?
