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"

Emissive material does not affect Landscape?

Hey Unreal community!

My team and I have run into an issue with emissive lighting when trying to use it together with a landscape.

The idea we had it is that we would like to use alien plants with a glowing "flower" throughout the level to make it look more interesting. However, after checking "Use Emissive for Static Lighting" in the StaticMeshActor's properties and rebuilding lighting, another mesh like a cube gets lit by emissive light but the landscape around it does not. I've attached a screenshot below so you can see what I mean.

Landscape not being lit by an emissive material

What am I missing? I've tried to look for similar answers but I didn't really bump into anything that would help solve the problem. Thanks a lot for your input!
