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"

Materials break after lighting build

I'm making a visualiser for a random music program - moving horizontally, one square from each row turns a different colour, as a section of music is played. It all works but when I build the lighting the materials seem to break, and display a black and grey pattern of squares, the default non texture - except for the first one, weirdly. I've created a different material for each row and tried to using material instance too, but still the same. I'm sure there's a simple answer to this but I can't see it!

So it's something to do with texture samples - materials with texture samples 1/16 don't work and ones with 3/16 do. So I've duplicated the working ones and modified them - I'd just like to know why this is? What do the texture samples have to do with it? I've got it working now but I want to know why :D
