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 has no mesh distancefields

Me and a friend has worked on a project. On his computer, the landscape has mesh distance fields (using visualize, mesh distance fields). On mine the landscape is completely black, while his has a white glow. After experimentation all my landscapes, new and old have no distance fields.

We both have "Generate mesh distance fields" and "compress distance fields". We have also tried different scalibility settings (epic).

Is there a way to force generate them? Is there something we've missed and need to do? Or is this a bug with ue4?

There appears to be a bug with it and isn't even showing up in 4.21 for me. I posted my own thread here https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/855986/421-landscape-not-part-of-global-distancefield.html

4.20 and 4.18 it worked as intended, so not sure of the what the cause is outside of a bug with distance fields.
