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"

Are box brushed Harder on resources than static meshes?

I do a lot some of my simple art with box brushes...mainly when I'm working with blueprint tests...

Is it best to make static meshes out of them? Or is it ok for them to be left way they are?? It may be a dumb question....I was just wondering if it saves on resources if they are all made into static meshes.

Thank ya.

Hi AttemptD,

We recommend only using BSP's to block out your level. If left in a packaged game you will usually notice a FPS drop in areas where BSP are present.

Like you said, you can make BSP's into static meshes, just be careful with the UV's that are created. Being auto-generated they aren't as precise as making them by hand in actual modeling software. This becomes noticeable when using them as lightmaps.
