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"

Base color not showing up in lit mode on landscape material


So here's why tale of woe; I wanted to get more tesselation onto my landscape material, so I deleted my old one and made a new one. However, on my new material, the base color disappeared when my scene's in lit mode. It's no fault for my light setup; I tried several different ones to confirm that the material shows up as pure white, and I don't think it's the material either - it worked perfectly on my old landscape, and the color does show up on unlit and base color mode.

In my material instance, I have four materials - two mud ones, and two snow ones - and the snows are of course pure white, so what seems to be happening is that they override the mud color when the landscape is lit, however, all the other channels work as intended.

I have tried to start over with a new landscape, new layer infos, new material instance, new project, restarting unreal, restaring my computer, and nothing seems to work. I'm completely stumped over this, so any suggestions would be more than welcome.

Thank you
