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"

Square pattern on all materials


I am getting this checker pattern on all my materials. This only happened after I rebuilt the lighting. Any ideas? I am pretty new to UE so apologies in advance if it is something simple.

I am importing sections of a building into ue4 using datasmith exported from 3DS max.

I guess it is improper U-V mapping.

Open the material you have applied on floor and add a texture coordinate node and set U-tiling and V-tiling to 1 and 1 respectively

That is exactly what it was. For posterity, what I did in the context of this workflow, was to apply an UVW unwrapper in 3DS MAX and then exported the .datasmith file. The issue did not seem to be present in UE4.21 however. Thanks for the help.
