    Thanks for the help.

    Unfortunately that doesn't work either.

    There's no error messages, no feedbaack. The script just executes and does nothing like the results here

    Sorry i think i was incorrect with the path, u have "Content/" ... it should be "/Game/" . U can see it in the image above.

    replace_material("/Game/1619_Section_26_CENTRAL6633/Materials/TL1_Wall_Tile", "/Game/Materials2/Ceramic_Enamel_Tiles_MAT")

    Thanks, I tried that it but it also doesn't work.

    I'm lost as it's literally cut and pasting the path, so no errors with spelling. Even using the filepath that UE4 is saying...

    (Redacted my name though)

    Scripting in Maya so much easier, at least it mentions where is wrong.

    i think u paths are incorrect...

    Content/1619_Section_26_CENTRAL6633/Materials/TL1_Wall_Tile should be: /Game/Content/1619_Section_26_CENTRAL6633/Materials/TL1_Wall_Tile

    Simple material swap python script not working


    Is there anything wrong with my code? It excutes but no materials replace.

    import unreal
    def replace_material(original, replacement):
        original_asset =
        replacement_asset =
            unreal.EditorAssetLibrary.consolidate_assets(replacement_asset, [original_asset])
    #replace_material(original_name, replacement_name)
    replace_material("Content/1619_Section_26_CENTRAL6633/Materials/TL1_Wall_Tile", "Content/Materials2/Ceramic_Enamel_Tiles_MAT")
    I've tried so many variations of the path that I've given up. Is there a way to just wildcard this so TL1_Wall_Tile gets replaced with Ceramic_Enamel_Tiles_MAT?
