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"

Texturing one object- using object multiple times with different scales


I am currently doing a room in blender for UE4 and I have come across something I don't know how to go about.

In the pic the white object is a basic window ledge, I plan to have it around every window and I'm not sure the best way to go about texturing it. I have a few ideas but I'm not confident in my approach.

I had in mind -

  1. Create all window ledges, UV unwrap them all into one UV atlas and just tile a texture but this is restricting any detail along either X or Y :(

  2. UV unwrap the white object as is so I can retain detail, and tile a texture along x, y. This is preferred but what if I want to stretch that object along the X to fit the window on all 4 sides? I can make a material instance with variable X and Y to fit it, but I would need to make an new material instances to fit any new window ledge I create that has a different length..

If anyone has any enlightenment on this that would be awesome :)
