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"

Modular Level UV Layout Best Practices

I'm building individual pieces for a new modular environment, such as walls, walls corners, floor and ceiling tiles, etc. and I'm wondering what UV Layout best practices are in these cases.

Textures for these modules are created in Substance Painter so my idea was to pack all these modules UVs in a single UV Tile, so I can generate a single texture (therefore a single material in UE4) for all of them instead of having a separate texture and material for every individual piece.

So my question is: What approach is better between the two mentioned above in terms of flexifbility, performances and lightmap generation quality?
