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"

How do I prevent texture from being pixelated?

Hi all. I'm making low-poly game assets and ran into a problem. When I see an object from a distance, some parts of texture get pixelated. Please take a look at images below. (Specifically, red glowing lines on a right one)

There's no such problem when I'm close to it.

Anyone knows why this is happening? Thanks in advance.

This because of mip-maps. You can set NoMipMaps in texture settings, to prevent this issue.

Huh. I think I tried that before, but obviously not. That works. Thanks a lot. Another question, though; setting NoMipMaps make the glowing parts virtually invisible if camera is far away. Instead, setting 'Dither Mip Map Alpha' to true seems to do the trick. Do you by any chance know if there's any trade-off to that?
