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"

Texture appearing as solid color

Hi there, a very annoying problem appeared and need some help. I'm making an archviz exterior scene and one mesh "roof" is not showing the texture right. It's showing like solid color. alt text

The material on the roof should look like the wall below. alt text This is the picture of the UV map. It looks right but something apparently is very wrong. I'm going crazy :) What could be the problem?

It might be a late response but try to apply scale of your objects in your 3d program. Also, there should be an option in FBX to export tangents, which works only when the mesh is tris or quads based. Be sure your 3d program has units calibrated to suit the UE4 metrics.
