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 to Tile a Material Based on Object's Scale Without Using World Alignment?

So, some context for why I cannot use the World Alignment Node for this material. The World in this game will rotate, so the physical location of the walls/objects will be changing all the time. This means that the texture will be constantly changing on what's supposed to be a static wall. I need to use something like the Object Scale Node that will allow me to take the static scale of the object and keep the same UV Coordinates no matter where the actual object is in the game.

alt text This is the wall as it pretty much should always look.

alt text This is what the texture on the wall looks like after the wall has rotated. As you can see, the texture does not retain the rotation/UV coordinates that it needs to.

alt text This is what I'm doing in the material as of right now. I've looked all over the documentation and forums, and nothing has helped me yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you found a solution to this? I was just thinking about scaling my objects and thought of looking for answers if it was possible to not have the material scale with it, I haven't tested anything yet and bumped into this, I hope this helps as this might be the answer you are looking for.
