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"

Layered Physical Materials (w/o the Landscape Tool)

I want a piece of ground that can have multiple physical materials. Dirt, snow, mud, whatever.

I don't want to use the landscape tool. The landscape tool generates enormous, flat, square chunks that don't fit the walls, cliffs, buildings or structures that i've created within my 3d modeling software.

There is a paint tool that can create multiple material layers for a mesh, but it blends these layers based on the complexity of the mesh. This means I need an extremely high face count to get the blend to look crisp which feels criminal if i'm dealing with relatively flat surfaces.

Is there no way to simply create a material and have multiple physical materials that blend by way of, say, a mask?
