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"

Why is it useful to have 1 FPMesh + 1 TPMesh ?


I've checked out the shooter example from Epic and I've realized that there are 2 Meshes for the character. 1 FPMesh and 1 TPMesh. So my question is why do we need 2 Meshes, instead of just using the TPMesh ?

One possible pro maybe is that you can bring in more detail for the arms. But is it the only one ?

  • The Camera

  • Usually the weapons and arms are one combined meshes, easier to animate.

  • Easier to work with one separate mesh for the first person view than using the third person one.

Also the game is separated to 2 different views. One is what the enemy sees. And the another one is what you see.
