Thinking particles Shading

I search over the internet but i could not find a solotion. It is possible to change the material of an istanced object in thinking particles after the cache is done?

I assume you've instanced it with GeomInstance node. If so you just have to add new dynamic set outside the one where you instanced the object and assign the new material there.
Just use the particle output of the object group and feed it into the particle input of a Shape Material node and then drag and drop the new material there.

You can check out how I've done it here. (Cache record the "create teapot" dynamic set).

tp saves mat library along with cache file. Just load it and change whatever you want except number of materials or their order.

One more problem. I've a volume breake node that is breaking a cube. For the upper part i've used a texture that i mapped before the breaking simulation with the uv. Now i need to place a texure on the new faces that created inside the geometry.

I've tried to create a texture with a noise and a dent, but the geometry is sliding inside the texture. How can i fix it?

I want to have the texure to follow the geometry for each piece during the animation.

Probably your texture is set to worldspace or objectspace mapping. Setting it to uv channel 1 should fix that.
