I have a project where I have a bunch of meshes that looks the same, but needs separate material properties (for example some are colored dark because they are in the fog of war).
I had though to solve this by looping through each surface’s material on the mesh and coloring that material’s albedo darker. However, when I color the albedo of one instance, all other instances of the same scene are also colored.
I read that I need to mark the resource as “local to scene” in order not to have it share properties with other instances. However, I have done this, and the properties are still duplicated.
I have tried:
- Marking each surface’s material on the mesh “Local to scene”.
- Marking the mesh “Local to scene”.
- Right-clicking each surface’s material and clicking “Make unique”
- Right-clicking the mesh and clicking “Make unique”.
Still no luck.
When debugging the code, each mesh seems to be unique now, but not its materials.
