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"

Foliage Painting "Collision with world" not behaving.

Been trying to use the foliage painter to paint some forest areas in my level. Whilst selecting multiple tree species, and having the "collision with world" check box ticked, which by the description of the tooltip makes a check for overlapping bounding boxes when placing and doesn't place instances where the boxes overlap to prevent models that clip with each other being placed.

However, when using multiple tree species this does not seem to be working properly. Whether i set the scaling value to 0.1 or 20 or any values in between, when i brush multiple tree models a lot of them still are placed inside/on top of one another. When placing a single object, it seems to mostly work, though i have had uncommon instances of objects still slightly clipping with one another.

I don't know if there is a step i'm missing, or if this is just flat out broken at the moment? It would confuse me greatly if this was "intended" function of the tool.
