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"

Unreal not generating Volumetric light samples inside LightmassImportanceVolume

I have a lightmass importance volume inside a large closed black box and Unreal doesn't seem to generate any Volumetric light samples, only the default, way too spaced out samples. All lights you see are stationary, cast shadows, and all static meshes are set to static & cast shadows.

Does anyone have an idea why this might be happening?

The problem was placing this box below a landscape which seems to prevent any light samples to spawn. Fixed by moving this to another part of the map
