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"

You can achieve transparency through the methods mentioned by IndieGameCove, but if you want to use the Metallic, Specular and Roughness nodes while still utilizing a Material with the Blend Mode of Transparent, then you will need to set the "Lighting Mode" in the "Translucency" section to "Surface Translucency Volume."

This setting can be seen in this screenshot:

This will activate those nodes.

Hope that helps.
