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"

[Low poly] Procedural mesh colors


I have a procedural terrain generated in C++ in a game that use the low poly style. I'm currently working on biomes implementation, and I have a little issue :

Each vertex of the terrain has a FColor depending on what biome it is located, but sometimes, the color of generated triangle is a gradient between different colors of his 3 vertices. I'd like the color of the triangle to be uniform without gradients.

So, I have this : alt text

And I want this (like the great Astroneer do) : alt text

How can I do this without duplicate the vertices of each triangles ? Do I need to write a custom shader ? Or do some Blueprint manipulations on the terrain material ?

Thanks for the help :)

I answer to myself : the only way is to duplicate vertices.
