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"

Landscape Material: How many textures is optimal to put as maximum with World Composition?

Hello, I am creating my landscape material from an open world map (created with World Composition) with several biodomains, such as the desert, the forest, the coast, the mountain, etc. So I have more than 50 textures needed for my world. Is it better to create a material with all 50 textures or is it better to create several materials for each landscape of my world with which they are used only at that level (maybe 10 to 20 per landscape)?

While there is no limit like that imposed, having more than 16 landscape layers in material greatly reduces comfort of working with it and inflates iteration times. So splitting it up would not hurt. Additionally you can't expect to have more than 3-4 layers painted per each landscape component. In given context, 1 landscape layer is though to have 3 textures.
