Default instancing inherit color of particles

Hello,

you'd probably have to do something with hooking a particleSamplerInfo node into the surface shader that's attached to your instances. I'm not 100% on how this would work and I dont realyl have time to look at it now. But look at that node maybe it will throw something up
