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"

Directional light's light shaft casts thick beam


I turned on the Light Shafts option in my directional light with default intensity. The light shafts appear but with them a thick bright beam oo light. I didn't change any other settings.

Does anyone know how I can eliminate this thing?

In BP_sky_sphere on "directional light actor" select your directional light, than the rays will show properly. Maybe after that you'll have to adjust the bloom scale of your directional light to a lower value. Hope it will help, bye!
