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 replace materials on multiple assets?

I would like to replace a material on all assets in a particular level. Assets have multiple materials in them so I cannot just select all and drag new material on top. What is the most efficient ways to this?

I just tried 'replace references' and this deletes old material which I definitely don't want to. I only want to replace in one level.

Doesn't look like 'replace references' deleted old material, so it worked. But the tool prompts me that it will delete the old material, may need more explanation.

Solution: SHIFT + S to select all surfaces (or Right Click > Select > Select all Surfaces), and then apply the material you want.

You could also select the brushes you want, then press SHIFT + B to select all surfaces on those brushes, and then apply the material.
