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"

Lighting Bug - Walk away and come back

So I'm making a game with dynamic sun and full dynamic lighting due to being able to build your own base and install lights etc. I have this odd bug where the lighting looks fine, until you walk away and come back. At that point the lights shine through the walls. I am clueless as to what is causing this and it doesn't seem to be something I'm doing but I may be wrong. The world is using streamed levels but I'm not walking far enough away for anything to be culled... Any help would be appreciated :)

The only way to get the light back to normal ie The first pic, is to recompile the light bp inside the house. This error also occurs inside the editor if I fly away from the light.
