* The Material library depends on ambientcg.com (A great site for free CC0 PBR Textures) for textures and requires an active internet connection to download new textures. (Although you can use already downloaded textures from the offline section). Just keep in mind if in an extremely rare situation the site is down you won't be able to use the online library until Lenart (Owner of ambientCG) fixes it.
