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 Lighting Build

Probably a very noob question but i'm inexperienced in lighting. I have a point light using a IEH profile. The point light is static and the shape of the ieh profile becomes disfigured after a Light Build! ![alt text][1]

The screenshots of before and after are attached

Hi. It looks like your lightmap resolution is too low, try to increase this value in Static Mesh Settings. It seemed to me that you are using brushes. Try to avoid BSP geometry, because it's very performance costly and not suitable for building lighting
