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"

Take a look at Substance Designer and Filter Forge, they are great for creating tiling, customizable, game ready textures.

substance can be expensive but it is a great tool. cheaper options to get textures i would suggest are sites like textures.com (formerly cgtextures). theres also many other sites that offer free and paid textures.

for a horror wall you could use any normal wall texture then layer on it a grime texture.

how do you layer materials on top of each other?

You can use Photoshop, Affinity Photo, Gimp or any other 2D application to layer multiple images. (Look for layer blending modes.)
However you could achieve higher perceived resolution by layering the textures in an Unreal material. For example wall dirt, repeating wall paper, up close mold, each at a different scale. In that case the "multiply", "add" and "linear interpolation (lerp)" nodes are commonly used.
