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"

Accessing mesh material from character blueprint problems

When trying to make a blueprint test to change the material color parameter from the material instance, im unable to get the base material to make the instance from, Im using the sample ShooterGame assets(halo-like character) and i want to get the material of the skeletal mesh from the character blueprint so i can set appropiate colors, but i got this alt text

So im unable to get the material and make a instance to change colors, if i just create a material variable and use that it works fine, but getting the material from the mesh is impossible.
