Hi!

Ropes are just meshes, rendered using a MeshFilter/MeshRenderer. So you write shaders for them like you do for any other object in Unity, there’s no difference whatsoever. Nothing specific you need to do in order to write a shader “for ropes”.

Just write a shader that draws a spiral. If you’re new to shaders I’d suggest checking a few tutorials on the subject.

Kind regards,
