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"

Blotchy materials and camera distance

Hi all,

I've got this problem occurring with tight static meshes like bricks, the materials display fine in the editor but in game they start off looking rough and blotchy but if you get close to them they "update" to look fine.

This must be some camera distance LOD based setting right? something I'm not enabling or disabling?

I've attached an image that'll illustrate it well.

My textures are all set to no mipmaps and cinematic but that doesn't affect it. I'd be incredibly grateful for any help.

Many thanks.

I'm pretty sure now this is to do with Lightmap Mipmaps, I however have no idea how to force those to be the highest quality however on startup, or at least affect their distance limits.
