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"

lightmass show wierd results with adjacent static meshes

hi actually i was testing some lighting and i get this behavior: i simply open a new third person blueprint project and used the ground mesh and divide it by three in order to make a ceiling for the example map. every thing was okay until i got my lightmass built and this is the result: alt text alt text lightmass settings are shown in the right and the left of images. do why is this happening? is it related for lightmass grid or i have lost some principle or settings? sorry for my wierd english. :) thx

Meshes are calculated separately during light build! What you see here is shading differences! You can tune your lightmass settings to get rid of those: set 0.15 for scale and 0.6 for smoothess and they will be gone! ;)

thx it worked, but this will increase lightmass calculating time dramatically, is there any other way to keep the calculate time low and avoid the effect?

Yes it does increase build time!! ...if you don't need hyper resolution lightmaps (=archviz) then just use 1 mesh / wall and don't use modular pieces!
