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"

if i had, lets say a steel i-beam. if i strech it to 600 scale on any direction, the material would be ridiculously streched. how do i make the streching not happen?

@rjvm I don't think he's talking about brushes.

Just try something similar to this: http://www.chrisalbeluhn.com/UDK_Asset_Position_Offsets_Texture/05.jpg http://www.chrisalbeluhn.com/UDK_Asset_Position_Offsets_Texturet_Tutorial.html

Should work in ue4 as well, you'll have to experiment with the numbers though.

To add to what Sitrec has posted you can see an example of this in the Content Examples project from Marketplace.

If you look at the material "M_BrickWall" you'll be able to see that this texture will not scale with the mesh.

You can see how to set this up for testing in your level with the attached image.
