    Could anyone recommend a URP shader that allows each side of a double sided shader to display a different set of textures? For example, a black leather cloak with a purple silk under-lining? Perhaps there is one in the asset store? If not, does anyone know a (gulp) tutorial to make one that would be appropriate for someone that thinks a "shader" is someone who holds an umbrella over a person's head on a sunny day? I'm a shader-idiot, and shader talk is like getting smacked in the head with a book written in ancient Sumerian.

    Code shader can feel overwhelming, but you really should take some time to learn Shader Graph. It's easy and really powerful!

    Here's how you can make what you asked for with it:



    It's pretty self-explanatory, but here's a simple explanation just in case: the Branch node kinda works like an If statement: Predicate is your condition, and True and False are simply what's happening based on what the condition returns.
    The IsFrontFace node does exactly what its name implies: returning true if it is the front face, and false if it is the backface.
    I plugged simple colors here, but you can of course plug anything you want in the two bottom outputs (textures, procedural stuff...).

    Or just have a check box that says doublesided, no?
