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"

Why only this object looks like have a high reflection?

Hello, I am trying to build a dungeon

I made some objects and import to UE4

when I take a look of them, there is a object looks like it have a high reflection, and just that object only alt text

even look at the dark side, still so bright alt text

here are the other objects, and i create a plane to display the material of the wall alt text

the textures i used were export form the "urban materials package"

those walls were using the same textures, just different UV map

i tried to add the roughness map of my material

and it seems like the object got wet alt text

i hope you know what i am saying, i am not a native english speaker

i really want how to fix it , thanks :)

I'm not sure why it looks the way it does, but the texture sample you connected to roughness is wrong. the roughness/ specular/ and AO maps are probably all packed into the rgb of the texture.

hm.. sorry, what the different? I'm still a newbie of UE4. The tutorials I saw are just link the textures to the material node.

should look something like the pic I'll link below, except this is a metal material and not brick so your metal value is just 0. https://docs.substance3d.com/spdoc/files/144998459/144998458/1/1467147159592/ue3.png

here's a tutorial on what i'm talking about. https://youtu.be/4-EsLM40_9o

i edit my material like your pic using R & B channels. It looks similar as no link of roughness map. Just a little bit darker. https://imgur.com/a/s1QgAuO
