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"

Stationary Sunlight only casting shadow on editor

I have a directional light on my project that serves as my sun, It's set to Stationary and I see all the baked (buildings) and dynamic lights (foliage). If I change the light to Movable all my lights go away. The exact same look as if I unchecked on the Stationary mode the Cast Shadow Option. When I Press "Play" the Shadows disappear as If it was Movable or if I changed the Cast Shadows. If I unchecked and then check during runtime the cast shadows option the shadows reaper, but also receive a warning: "Mobility of LightSource_I15 : LightComponent0 has to be 'Movable' if you'd like to move."

Video showing the behavior https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzz3N6sG4rM

I'm using Forward Rendering This behavior exists even if I add another Sunlight (Directional Light). Exposure Min and Max = 1

Dont know what I'm doing wrong.

Did a test in a new empty level: 1.Create two cubes. Bake light. Shadow appears on the Editor. Hit Play. Shadows appear in game. 2.Unchecked Cast Shadow on the directional light. Checked again. Shadows appear on the Editor. Hit Play. Shadows gone in game. 3.Bake Again. Shadows on both editor and Game.

Is this normal?

Thank You BTW
