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 materials upon action

Hi! There is probably a simple solution, but I can't quite work it out. I have a shop in which you can buy armor for your character, however (being a low poly game since I'm not a 3D modeler) I just want the colour (or color) to change on the chest plate the character is wearing, similar to Link changing his tunic in Ocarina of Time. Any ideas? The context in which I am in is if I am near a certain building (in the form of an actor blueprint) a widget that appears gives an option of things to buy. When a button is pressed to buy an item stats should go up (that part is sorted) and the colour of my chestplate should change.
