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"

Movable objects not receiving lighting in interiors from static lights.

I'm trying to figure out exactly which configurations i need for proper interior lighting, but i've been unsuccessful. All movable objects in my scene only seem to be lit with the directional light. I just want my interior lights to affect characters and doors. Any advice? alt text

same issue 4.20.3 light as static wont work objects move too much like inspectable objects the player picks up and rotates. The game is outdoor and indoor with various buildings to enter in first person.

Yeah, you're right - for some reason I thought he wanted dynamic shadows from static lights.

Static lights, by design, won't affect movable objects. What you want for those inside lights is Stationary lights.

This is incorrect. Static Lights do affect Movable objects, those objects just need to opt into the static environment by having proper Lightmaps set up (which require proper UVs). Then the movable object has options whether or not to use Point or Volume light samples when moving throughout the scene.

If movable objects didn't work with Static Lighting....mobile and VR games wouldn't really exist. Sure you can afford a couple of dynamic lights to dynamic light certain movable objects, but as long as it is setup correctly a movable object can definitely integrate into the static lit environment.
