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"

Mesh casts different shadow on two maps despite same lighting settings

So I built the lighting for two different maps. One only had a few meshes in it (lighting test map), the other had a lot more (actual game map). The Lightmass settings for both maps are the same.

The same mesh casts a very detailed shadow in the lighting test map but casts a blocky shadow in the game map. Both meshes have the same light settings.

I don't know what is causing this nor do I know how to fix this. Can someone help me?

I figured it out! The Dynamic Light in the map with the good lighting was set to stationary, the light in the other map was set to static.
