  • Carly,

    first you'd have to create 7 different images for the days of the week.

    Then check which day it is using Travis' code above and show the corresponding image.

    I've updated the script Travis provided earlier so that it can take as input 1 Sprite Visual component and 7 Textures (one for each day of the week). It then changes the texture of the Sprite's material based on the day of the week.

    Let us know if you have any questions about how to set it up in Lens Studio.
