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 geometry bug

Hello! So, I can't teach myself to use any editing software. I just cant use them.

I am building a game and I wanted to do a signal for a train (just design wise, not functional) and I made it using a 4 cylinders and a super awkward sphere. The thing is, the geometry bugs out when close together. (I updated my GPU drive just so you know). Take a look: alt text

Either these faces are missing or if they are just visible from one side, then the Normals are inverted. If you are using blender to make your Assets: Go in edit mode and press ctrl+N to let blender calculate the normals again or press space and search for flip normals. Flip the normals on the affected faces. There also is a Check box to render the backface Culling in Blender in the the right panel of the viewport (press N to show the panel), the checkbox is under the 'Shading' tab.

Mark this as an answer, if this solved you problem (under the rating of the answer should be a check)

This is a simple cylinder from Unreal Engine. I do not use Blender as I don't really know how to use it.

And I tried to remake the cylinder, but when I put it there, it just bugs out. In other places it is ok, just not near other geometry.

Oh you work with the Geometry Brushes? https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Actors/Brushes/ I can recreate this with 2 cylinders of very close radii like 200 and 199.75. It is not expected that the geometry is perfect with these tools. They are nice and easy for creating a rough world and these Bool operators (Additive and Subtractive are the two brushtypes) are not always that clean, even in 3D Modeling software, especially when the Geometry gets more complex. You should make it more rough or look into modeling software, like blender ;)
