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 a material using buttons from HUD

I have no idea why this confuses me so much but here we go... I have a planet with lightning effects on the material and all I want to do is have a button in the HUD toggle the effect. I think I have set up the dynamic material correctly but I'm not sure to be honest.

Any help at all would be great! Cheers guys!

Have a look at the screenshots below alt text This is my attempt at creating a dynamic mat.^

alt text This is my HUD (it appears in the game just fine)^
