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"

Odd Shadowing with Static Lighting


After baking static directional lighting I am getting odd shadow spots on my meshes. I also have a static skylight involved. How can I rid myself of these odd shadows??

Here is a screenshot:

As you can see the rock has odd shadows. the trees also have this effect but i have moved them to show the difference before and after baking. I can provide any info you need to help.

I also think while possibly a different issue with LODs, I am getting the following errors on build:

It looks like a UV mapping issue, did you get any errors/warnings as you built the lighting?

I have one mesh that is currently bad and causes a "overlapping uv" error. but it is not the rocks or trees. the trees had a "lightmap too large" warning but then i just lowered the lightmap res for the two tree meshes and it went away. Also LODs seem to cause an issue with the trees. something about having unique uvs
