It sounds like you’re lacking an environment. The reason for this could be one of a few.

The editor environment could be turned off, which you can turn back on by opening the 3 vertically dotted icon’s tab, then enabling “View Environment”.

If you have a WorldEnvironment node and you have made a new Environment with no further changes, then that will create a very dark environment. You can remove the node or edit your new environment.

You could have accidentally made changes to your default environment, which comes with every new Godot project. It will be labelled “default_env.tres” under the FileSystem tab.

These are your most likely solutions if the problem is indeed the environment.

i literally tried everything

My View Environment was on(it was not off)
I even tried by installing the new version and old version of godot and trying in it also my 3d objects are black
In Inspector its showing the color that I want but in game its black
I have no other environment node
I don’t even mess with the default environment
It happens in every 3D project I make in godot(any version)

Please help!!!

If this is occurring on all projects you are creating and reinstalling Godot does not solve your issue then this might be a more fundamental problem with your device.
I’m not really that tech savvy but perhaps you have could try updating your graphics drivers if its outdated. Otherwise, I’m not sure what the issue could be. Sorry if I couldn’t be of much help.

Have you found the solution, I just got this problem too. I just found a simple solution, add a light node

You can go to the 3 dots on the top (under the tab) and add environment to scene and it will give it default lighting. Your Welcome :slight_smile:
