    Hello All,

    Here is the enemy health script. When Enemy health gets zero, I want to change some values in material shader. So I changed the material shader value. The current enemy whose health is zero, script changes the value of material shader. But there is a problem, another enemy whose health is 100 also sharing the same material and their material value also gets changed which should changed when enemy health become zero. So, what should I do? And after facing this problem I came to know that if we change the value of material shader in run time, its never gets back to its default value. And its beyond my level.:(

    Thanks for the reply.:) But I am preparing code for mobile platform so extra drawcall will definitely the problem. And I'm still learning so the method you have suggested, I'm unable to use that in my script. Can you edit my script for me?
    Somewhere I have read in these kind of situations where multiple mashes share one material, people use some kind of material batch in run time. But I have no idea about that. That's why I'm asking. :(
