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"


I see a million questions about lighting but not the most obvious one: HOW? WHERE? Where is this magic build button? My scenes always say stuff like : "Lighting needs to be rebuilt (48,000 unbuilt objects)" - someone here said the only fix is to select: 'No Precomputed lighting', but as soon as I select that, it says : REBUILD LIGHTING ONCE TO PROPOGATE CHANGE" So,. No help there, I wish he had just said where this BUILD button is.

I never seem to get a simple correct answer "the build button is here, press it."

thanks! ;")

我想我明白你的意思。 如果我构建游戏,将同时构建照明。

等待一分钟! 现在我真的明白了!

我查看了构建按钮下拉菜单下的众多命令。 (而不是像往常一样按下构建按钮)魔术命令位于列表顶部:“仅重建照明”

哇谢谢你! 那真是太棒了! 这么简单,我在嘲笑我!。 我倾向于通过逆向工程比死记硬背方法学得更好,我也喜欢学习“在工作中”,(不仅仅是孤立地学习,然后继续学习。)这样,我更有动力去理解并保持理解 因为我已经将它应用于现实世界中。



I think I understand what you mean. If I build the game, lighting will be built at the same time.

Wait a loving minute! Now I really DO understand!

I looked at the numerous commands under the build button's drop-down menu. (instead of pushing the build button as usual) Magic command, at the top of the list: "rebuild lighting only"

WOW, Thank you! That is spectacular! It is so simple I am laughing at me! .
I tend to learn much better by reverse engineering than the rote method, I also like to learn 'on the job', (not just learn in isolation, and then do) That way I am more motivated to understand and to retain that understanding, because I already applied it in a real world situation.

Thank You!
