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"

Hey potatojoe,

These shadows might be caused by the angle of your light source. Changing that might alleviate the problem.

Edit: Other possibilities include issues with your lightmap UVs and insufficient lightmap resolution. Raising the lightmap resolution should help somewhat, but if the problem is in the UVs then that won't fully fix it.

I can offer more specific help if you give me more information about how you set up your level. Step-by-step instructions are the most helpful.
