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"

LandscapeGrassOutput and GrassType


Recently I've made feature request for bugfixes and features to LandscapeGrassOutput. I've worked on Landscape Auto Material and got a lot of feedback on beautiful LandscapeGrassOutput system. https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/345567/feature-request-landscape-grass-output-parameters.html

And thanks for Epic, many of this features was implemented.

There are features\bugs that still actual (there are tons of emails about it) and I would to request:

1) It would be great to have an opportunity to switch grass output references in material instances. Currently if you want to change GrassOutput - you need to duplicate a whole master material.

2) LandscapeGrassType could slow to display grass on game start with high density grass. There is need to delay level start until grass generates around camera or somehow to fix this issue: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?85374-Landscape-Grass-Takes-Forever-To-Show-Up&p=384370 https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/276461/landscapegrasstype-slow-to-display-grass-on-game-s.html

3) In case of values of Min and Max scale in LandscapeGrassType are simillar - scalling doesn't work at all. So it's impossible to make uniform scale using this input fields.

4) Collision generation tool for Landscape Grass Output meshes with collisions. No need to do it dynamicaly, it could be baked for one time on the map to consume performance.

Thank you and best regards, Dmitry Smirnov VEA Games
