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"

Change Material based on Meshes Location

Hey there

So, for a University Project in Enviroments, we were tasked with using a technique most useful to our scene and since im creating a library i thought the idea of moving books around the editor and them changing materials as they move would be really interesting. I came up with this idea after looking at the material created by Maxim Dorokhov's Wile West Challenge enviroment. I tried and tested this but just cant seem to figure out how to get this to work. Any help will be awsome and will credit all assitance in my report. Thanks a bunch :).

The material node is called World Position:

You will need some clamps and a bit of math to make it look right.
