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"

Unwanted automatic tessellation on terrain

Hello everyone,

So here is my problem, when i create a custom material for my landscape in order to have slopes etc there is a sort of tessellation apearing automatically. It doesn't happen when I use a very simple material (like in the starter content). In my custom landscape I haven't enabled the tessellation so I really have no idea why it does that. I set up custom LOD on my landscape too

Here are the screens of my problem and my material. alt text alt text alt text alt text

That is landscape LOD system, and it is working as expected with your LOD settings.

But why is it so dense ? I want the second one not the first. I don't need tessellation so I don't need so much détails. What I can't understand is why the tessellation activates itself with just a simple material.

Check if tessellation is disabled in material settings.
