    ProcBuilding Static Shadow

    I just tried out the new ProcBuilding feature. Freaking amazing. My only problem if the crazy amount of seams that show up when I bake the lighting. How the heck do I get rid of those?

    bumping. if you need pictures, i'll try to add, but i think it's that "problem" that happens when you have pieces of something next to each other that make ugly shadows.

        It looks ok on the side the light is coming from, but on the other side, i get this.

          Correct me if im wrong but i thought the ProcBuildings where for the purpuse of making custom "skybox" typ models. Lighting errors from sides would make sence since theese are made for beeing viewed at a distance. Am i wrong here or? I havent myself worked with the ProcBuilding tools but you could post your settings for the buildings.

            that would definitely make sense. but this is a problem I tend to get when using tileable meshes and lightmass. I would really like to know if the two could work in seamless shadow harmony

              Well for static meshes what I do is in 3ds Max I unwrap the model like I normally do then I add another unwrap modifier and change the channel to 2 then unwrap using flatten mapping. Then in UDK I import and I change the lightmap resolution of the model to 512. You might also have to change the channel used for the lightmap to 1 if it is not that already (In UDK the numbers are one less, so 1 in 3ds max is 0 in UDK and 2 in 3ds max is 1 in UDK). Not sure if this will help with the ProcBuildings simply because I never tried it, but I hope it helps!
