Shader help please?
So for awhile now I've been doing a sort of bandaid fix it way to exchange complete textures/shaders on clothes and skin. Basically I would take a complete mat for a character or a shirt or whatever, I would replace the mats in the actual file folder with the mats I wanted to use, and that's that. When I choose the mat from my content library, instead of the mat that's listed appearing, my new mat is uploaded.
But now I'm getting to the point where I really need to know how to do this the correct way.
I know how to change a color/texture for an arm or a chest or a foot or whatever, but if I wanted to apply an entire mat to a character or piece of wardrobe, how would I go about doing that from, say, the shader interface?
Additionally, I'd love to know how to make the mats I create actually appear with little 91x91 icons in my actual library like all of my purchased textures do.
Any help with any of this is very much appreciated! :)
