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"

Randomize the color of an object at spawn.

As the title implies, I'm trying to randomize the colors of a certain group of objects every time they spawn, alongside dividing them into groups according to the color they got.

1 answer: sort voted first

1) create a material with some node in it being an RGB color
2) right click that node and "set as parameter"
3) create material instance based of that material (right click the material asset, theres an option.)
4) set the material of your model to use the material instance asset you have just made.
5) go to construction script, put a node of random color, or a selection from predefined colors you want
6) material->setVectorParameterByName("your_color_parameter_name_here")

some names above may differ, because i don't have the engine opened right now. you should figure the alternative names in this case, not that hard.
