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"

I think you simply create a model in Maya with multiple materials applied to it and it should import into Unreal Engine with multiple material slots.

You can not edit UV of static mesh in EU4. All edit, your must do in MAYA.

It must be done in a 3D modeling program like Maya or 3Ds Max, Just change the material applied to each section and UE4 will detect it.

In Maya just select the faces you want, hold right click and choose apply new material. (use a lambert for ease)

Also take a look at the unreal doc on it, https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Content/FBX/Materials/index.html
