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"

Is there a way to change a material instance asset?

I probably worded the title horribly but picture this situation, I use the same material instance multiple times in different assets in the level and i want to change the color of the material instance without doing the following...

SpecificAsset->GetMaterialInstance->ChangeColor

Is there a way for me to change the material instance color so that any asset that uses the instance will be affected?

You can just use the material instance asset itself. If multiple assets have some parameters different, and some parameters the same, just make a base material instance.

So right click on your material -> Create Material Instance.

Call it something like MI_BaseMaterial

Now right click on MI_BaseMaterial and again click Create Material Instance. Or reparent the ones you already created to the base material instance.
