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"

Are your lights static and baked ? Maybe their effect should be seen far away with baking. I think you could also try to up the MaxDrawDistance to its maximum to override the default value that may be smaller. Finally, for the lamps, you can use an Emissive Material to fake the luminance of the light. From far away, maybe use an halo (achieved with a billboard) to make the point light more visible. alt text

I am not an artist so not sure if I put you on the good way...
