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"

Any idea why this is happening?

The lightmaps are perfect in editor, but when I package the game and run it it looks like the shadows are gone and I'm getting light bleeding at the corners. The wall geometry is solid, my direct light, skylight is stationary, and I have an editorsphere with an hdr mapped to it.

The lightmap res on the wall is 1024. I'm also getting some weird shadows on the chair seat cushion and the sphere.

if you model the floor, walls and roof together in a single mesh, you probably won't have leaks like that. You will probably have to set your objects to cast two sided shadows too.

The wall and floor is built as one piece. I'll try the two sided shadow suggestion.

Nothing worked. Seems like the the lightmass calcs arent loading since this what it looks like in editor until the lightmaps load. Any idea why they wouldnt load in game? 4.16.2
