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"

Lansdscape materials disappear

I have just updated my project to 4.21.1 from 4.20, and my landscape materials are not not showing on landscape (just default UE material instead of this). I used paint and visibility tools on lanscape. How can I fix this? Or is it just a bug?

Just a first guess, which may be entirely wrong, but why not.

How many texture layers is each component of your landscape painted with, at maximum? Is it more than four? If so, check out the following clip from a recent Unreal live stream where they show how more than 4 simultaneous textures on a single landscape component causes the material to fail and only display the default checkerboard, like in your screenshot.

Link to video on YouTube

That link takes you directly to the point where the presenter fixes the issue, but you may want to back up a few minutes earlier to see how he first introduces the topic.

I'm not sure why your landscape would be broken only after the engine upgrade, but, I guess that's not important.

Good luck. I hope it helps.
