    Hi, I've just converted my project from 4.19 to 4.22 and EVERYTHING that was made with the Instance Tool is now with messed up textures. Rebuilding the project, fixing redirections, moving the project to a clean 4.22 project or using the "Rebuild Instances" button on the tool don't help. All my assets that are made with the Instance Tool are now completely messed up...

    Hey Nate looking to see if you've incorporated the hotfix for precision issues when instancing into 1.2.8? It doesn't appear to be available as an option as far as I can see.

    You can use it on existing maps. You just select the actors you want to convert and go to the instance tool panel and hit the convert button and it will convert them.
    yes this tool is good hopefully it gets updated

    It's unclear to me if you are able to go from a previously created instanced static mesh back to the original static meshes using this tool? I ask because I wonder how compatible this is with re-imports from Datasmith.

    I wish you would implement some randomize transform/rotation/scale functions into this, because I need them badly right now. Mostly for introducing the lifelike small imperfections making every scene much more natural.

    tib_hou Very sorry for the confusion, 'Minimun num converted instances' option was added recently, the default value of "2" might puzzle other users if they're following the manual. I'll change that in next update.

    Macw0lf I'm currently investigating the lightmap issue of HISM, it seems an editor issue when applying lightmap data (it's correct in PIE). I haven't nailed down the problematic code, will update you if I've more finding.

    The workaround of the issue is after the lightmap been built, save and re-open the map, you should notice the lightmap data apply correctly.

    thanks.. don't think this is the issue. I am using static lights throughout, and my materials are set to use Instanced static meshes.. so would expect this to work out of the box. I found another thread by the author showing how static lighting renders correctly... but I can't seem to get that result.

    So tried a brand new 4.20 project with nothing but a few cubes and a material. same problem! This should be very easy to replicate and confirm as a bug?
