Changing Texure
« on: May 31, 2012, 07:34:51 AM »
Hi,
Am trying to change a texture/material to match the selection from another GameObject.
I wish to change the texture/material by name 1,2,3.......30,31,32 etc.


I have tried all work arounds, but am stuck.

I could create a large switch table, but this is cumbersome.
Don't really get the 'set material float'
tried 'convert material to object' then 'set object value' but no luck

anybody help

Byron.

An easy way would be to be to either use the set material texture action to assign a new shader to the object, or you could have the object have the same textures on both objects and simply change the index of the currently active texture

eg: cube 1 and 2 both have 2 textures on them.....red and green

the first texture is material index _0 (red) and the second texture is material index _1 (green)

so when you click on the first object, it checks which material index is active, then sets cube 2 to have the same index number
