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"

How do I trigger a swap model or texture for Damage state?

I was wondering how do I swap a model by a trigger - lets say for a damaged version of something or texture swap via trigger? For example if I want to have walls change materials as you walk through, or swap a model with a damaged version of the same model?

Hi Ghostblades,

The Set mesh and Set Material nodes are what you need. You can setup some actions and then once those actions are handled you can apply the new mesh or material via these nodes.
