So I have a character type and I want to just simply change the colors of the albedo to differentiate the characters from one another. However, when I try to change the albedo_color. It changes it for all the instanced character.

Is there a way to only change one specific instanced characters materials settings?

Materials are shared resources. You need to make a new material either by duplicating the current material or creating a new material resource in a script and assigning it as the material.

var new_material =
MeshInstance.set("material/0", new_material)

Thank you for the explaination.
