Remember to delete 'loose' SDK content if you've extracted pak files into your build! Otherwise that old loose content will override the new content inside the pak files.

An issue with texture streaming on objects with custom materials (manually assigned materials to objects) is present in 3.6.10. A workaround is to disable texture streaming via r_TexturesStreaming=0 in your system.cfg.


  • Fixed: (ACE) Using "show in explorer" for an animation directs to the wrong path (CE-3269).
  • Fixed: (CharEditor) 'Auto Populate Events' dialog to better display long bone names (CE-1154).

  • Fixed: (Mannequin) Playback problem in previews (CE-4772).
  • Fixed: (Mannequin) Enable diagnosing of invalid entity error, fatal in launcher, warning in editor.
  • Fixed: (Flowgraph) Scrolling with middle-mouse button while dragging a graph-edge no longer leaves behind a frozen edge (CE-4609).
  • Fixed: (Flowgraph) Don't show void port types for new flowgraph modules.
  • Fixed: (Vegetation) Deleting Procedural vegetation remains visible (CE-3595).
  • Fixed: (Vegetation) Procedural Vegetation being assigned to wrong layers in Launcher (CE-3794).
  • Fixed: Editor crashes when reloading a level with Highlight Missing Surface Type/Breakable Materials enabled (CE-4635).
  • Fixed: Error window no longer corrupted when moving around (CE-4706).
  • Fixed: Object layer manager memory trampling.
  • Fixed: Terrain Editor brush indicator disappearing when 'Sync Radius for all Types' is enabled. Fixed negative radiuses when using shift+mmb drag (CE-4664).
  • Fixed: Undoing "Pick and Attach" on prefabs results in the object becoming unselectable (CE-4678).
  • Fixed: Possible crash in CDecalObject::UpdateEngineNode() (CE-4636).
  • Fixed: (Prefab) Modifying Light params when inside open prefab (CE-4711).

There was an update for Area Lights for 3.6.10 to bring them up to PBS compatibility. To use AreaLights, please use the r_DeferredShadingAreaLights 1 CVar. This is still WIP so please let us know any bugs you may find!

  • New: PBR Area Lights support.
  • New: Per Character Shadow Maps (Environment:PerEntityShadows node).
  • New: Method to disable shadow lod bias per rendernode.
  • Fixed: Don't update static shadow frustum projection parameters during incremental updates (CE-4756).
