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"

Landscape Hole Casts Shadow On Static Geo

Cutting a hole in the landscape and then lighting it with a stationary light results in the geo behind the hole acting as if the invisible geo of the hole was casting a shadow on it. To clarify, no light passes through the hole to light the interior of the "cave" in this case.

Is there some way to make a hole in a landscape that light will properly bake through? Do I have to use a dynamic light for this? Any help is appreciated. This seems like a pretty big oversight in consistent lighting.
