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"

Texturng or lightmap problems

alt text

As you see, at the joints of two objects, a different shade of color is drawn, although the material of the objects is the same, maybe someone knows how to fix it? alt text alt text

On the other side, everything seems fine. but if you turn the shadows the problem returns.

I'm still not sure what is separate and what is not but... ...one side you have directional light hitting the surface: no problem; the other side is the indirect light... Maybe it's just shading differences because of the way is light calculated in Unreal /by object/... Have you tried decreasing indirect lighting smoothness (0.6) under lightmass settings? /you might also need to decrease scale too 0.15/

Is it one object or separate meshes? Could it be that a box reflection capture is overlapping this area? Could you show lightmap uvs and resolution?
