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"

The question itself is rather vague, the best way to learn more about the material editor is not only looking at the materials made by epic but also taking them apart, look at various nodes and understand what they do.

Here are some links on what the nodes can do: http://www.hourences.com/ue3-mat-expressions/ http://www.hourences.com/ue3-material-editor-part-2/ http://udn.epicgames.com/Three/MaterialsCompendium.html

If you know what you can do with particular nodes, you can start to be creative and play around with them to find a variety of results.
