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"

Model Shaders?

I am trying to make a game that includes some customization of the player's character, one of those customization options being different shaders that alter the characters overall appearance when equipped (if you've ever played Destiny, something along those lines).

What I am wondering, is there a way to accomplish this without having to make textures for all character models for each shader?

I apologize if this is in the wrong section,

Thanks.

Hello DoctorChopps,

What you can do is create a material array via a Material Instance.

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/Materials/MaterialInstances/Editor/index.html

From there you can expose different values I.E a Constant Vector 3 parameter. Then you would need to assign this instance to be called in game. So, like in destiny, assign a value to the shader so that when the instance is called it will appear with the settings you assigned it.
