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"

Hi there,

The most likely culprit causing the all black landscape is the missing layer info. So you have your material, which is looking for the layers you have set up, grass, rock, dirt. The issue is that by default the landscape won't know what those layers are. You create the landscape layer info by going to the Landscape and then the Paint tab. Here you can press the (+) icon and create the layer info you want. Once that info exists and is reference, you can paint onto it. That Layer info is where any layer painting information is stored.
