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"

3D model in HUD

Good time of day, in the creation of the next game collided with the need to display the 3D model in the HUD (more precisely in the inventory). It is based on an example of Skyrim. Q: how it make in UE4, or how in general realize this?

As far as i know, it is only possible to fake this.

There are UMG components for this. I guess something like Viewport.

The issue here is, that UE4 has no render layer infront of the HUD. It will always draw above the ingame scene (that's why you can't add a weapon mesh to a shooter character like in Counter Strike, which is just a HUD Fake for the player).

If i understood that correctly, you would need to render the model in an empty space and get it into UMG with this Viewport thing (or was it SceneCapture :X?)

But maybe this gives you enough information to search a bit, because this was asked several times already.

Im making a game, in that game, there's a legendary item, and its shown as a Cutscene(matine) in a different level, its not rxactly as you want, but i think you can do a Matinee showing a mesh that changes of model depending of the selected item :D
