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"

No shadows on foliage

foliage is not projecting shadows at all. I've tried to recompile the lighting, but my scenery is so giant that I waited more than 48 hours and didn't go out of 0%, so I gave up. For now I've left my directional light in Stationary and the shadows doestn't work... But I want them to work with movable light or stationary.

I'm using the Super Grass Blueprint free package: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaCQWUL0Htw

There are so many issues here:

1) First of all, use dynamic lighting, at least while you sort the problem out.

2) Have you placed the grass using the foliage tool or is it a grass type on the landscape?

3) Is the landscape pretty standard?

4) The landscape is very dark, it's hard to tell if there are any shadows, can you try it with something lighter?

4) Do the grass meshes have 'cast shadow' checked?

5) If you placed them using the foliage tool, did you have 'cast dynamic / static shadow' checked?

6) Does your dynamic light have 'cast shadows' checked?

Hear from you...

PS: There's also lots of free grass in the free epic content, have you tried some of that?
