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"

Do Material instances use their own mipmaps or share just one?

I read that Lod's dont work properly when using instance meshes. So is it the same with mipmaps in instance materials? A yes or no answer would suffice. I think I know the answer and I think its a bad idea to use instanced materials at different distances like down a road. I'm developing for mobile and know how important mipmaps are.

mip maps are not connected to materials and are only subject to your settings in texture editor.

yes but all material instances share the same texture, no? material and texture are basically one thing when used together.
