Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately at present we do not have a skeletal sprite system in place. What you can do is attach a gun sprite to the animation you are currently using to hold the gun in blueprints. However, this probably will not produce ideal results. It would be best to create separate animation sprite sheets for the various weapons and armor pieces that you need if they change the animation significantly. If not, you can reuse the animation with the attached component sprites.

If you have a 3D art creation program, you can make a 2D skeletal mesh like Broken Age or South Park. Try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_fKc6FfpY4

specifically the part where we can look through options and how this will work in blueprints to change the sprites used. would it be using conditions?
