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"

How to add a sun disc to custom sky sphere?

Hello. I am trying to recreate my old Unity project in UE4 right now. Pretty much all of the game is situated in space (on the Moon, to be more exact), so I needed a skybox with the stars, Milky Way and so on.

So I created a custom blueprint with static mesh component with SM_SkySphere mesh and applied to it my material created from my .hdr sky texture. It looks nice, except the sky disc is missing. I know that the sun is added to the scene by the Atmospheric Fog, by if I add it to the scene, the sun is behind my sky box, meaning that I can not see the disc itself.

So my question is how can I add a sun disc to the scene while using custom textured skybox?
