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 change a material color based on damage BP?

As the title says, How can I communicate to a players material and change his color based on damage. I want my characters color to turn brighter red based on how much health he has left. How do you communicate to a pawns material from the pawns blueprint.

Thanks in advance.

The standard approach here is to use the create dynamic material instance node (MID) to make an MID for the pawn. Ideally you should also create an MiD variable and set it to that MID afterwards to make it convenient to edit in the BP.

To change properties you would use the set scalar parameter or set vector parameter nodes. You simply need to have parameters of matching names in the material and you can control pretty much anything.
