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 do I switch materials on a mesh?

I'm using my own class called powers and trying to have that switch materials on my player character's class. I've tried using the "get instigator" node in my powers class and hooking that up to a "cast to player's class" node. However, that doesn't seem to work for Set materials node. Am I using the set materials node all wrong? What is the best way of doing this?

If I understand you correctly, you are trying to change material on your class?

Could you show us the BP you have? Are you using a "dynamic material instance"-node? If you just want to change properties of your material during runtime you can use Material Instance Dynamic. You create them in the blueprint, assign them to your mesh, then you can change any parameters of your material during runtime.
