  Entity:SetMaterial( string materialName )


Sets the rendering material override of the entity.

To set a Lua material created with CreateMaterial, just prepend a "!" to the material name.

If you wish to override a single material on the model, use Entity:SetSubMaterial instead.

To apply materials to models, that material must have VertexLitGeneric shader. For that reason you cannot apply map textures onto models, map textures use a different material shader - LightmappedGeneric, which can be used on brush entities.
