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 Shadows/Lightning on mesh after building light

Everytime I build light, I get dark shades on my meshes and their shadows get weird. With unbuilt lightning it looks all fine.

Here are the settings: https://gyazo.com/e2d70a8a4a7d9c662a834440e9902df9 https://gyazo.com/1f836b6cd001f99207c5cf6a20dac7c0 https://gyazo.com/66a6249d0c5111e34b79dbbb63fb8f84

the unbuilt lighting is dynamic.

that looks similar to an issue i had with a lot of trees in the foliage system. i was getting light map size areas so i reduced their light map to 8x8. that stopped the complaint but resulted in blob shadows. i never had the time to go back and fix it.

are you using foliage on terrain?
