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"

Change material through function and folder

Hi everybody.

I was looking for a solution to my problem. I'd like to change material from a folder where they are all placed and, using a function, change the material of an actor. I want to do this because it is too long to set all the times the nodes that can allow me to change the material (at the moment I have a function with 4 nodes for just one material). Is there anyone that could help me?

Thank you for your time

I don't understand. What's wrong with SetMaterial? Do you mean you want to replace several materials at the same time? Or on several actors?

I found a way with this guide:


The only thing i don't like about this guide is the randomic selection of the item. I want to follow a "path" of material from the array in the order i want.
