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"

Hello Mshep3D,

My suggestion would be to have a look at the documentation on Blueprints to get started.

Blueprints Visual Scripting https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Blueprints/index.html

How I would go about doing this would be to start with the bare mesh imported into the Engine. I would then create a blueprint using this mesh and establish what properties about the blueprint I would like to expose to the user in order to customize parts of the car. For example, if I was going to allow the user to change the paint color of the car. You would create a variable called 'Paint Color', and depending on how customizable you would like the color to be, you could make an array of different colors for the player to choose from.

For something like adding different parts, like a spoiler or other body modifications, you would add sockets to certain areas of the car so that when the user chooses between a set of pieces, the part snaps to the socket location. Blueprints are very versatile and a powerful part of the Engine that allow users who would like to have greater control over their game design without the know code.

I hope this helps get you started, but if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask. There are always people on our forums working on their own projects and willing to help others progress their skills in the Engine. I would also try posting your question in there, and you might be surprised at the feedback you receive. :)

Hi i think this problem can be solved with the help of a professional mechanic who knows and professionally certified with the work. But one more thing you can take into count is purchasing of OEM parts for your vehicle, that only can give you a better drive. http://www.slideshare.net/germanformula/step-bystep-guide-to-buy-autoparts-online-safely
