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"

In Game model creator

Hello I would like to make a game where the player can build his/her own vehicle. See this video to gain a concept of what I would like. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7JpAyAHrgk) Time 1:31 - 13:40

My question is One if it is possible to do it within Unreal,and Two how to go about it.

I will make all the internal equipment, but how can I allow my players to make their own outer shell (a.k.a Armour)

Product Version: UE 4.9

A huge blueprint with a ton of static meshes to swap through and a gui to adjust the scale of them and a ton of static mesh sockets. I'd like some input on this myself.

Several developers are working on plugins to allow creating and deforming meshes at runtime. Here are some links to other threads:

How can I access the triangles of a static mesh?

Can you created meshes at runtime?

I guess the placement of the components should not be a problem for you.

If you don't find the plugins useful consider modelling various versions of outer shells and let the player choose one, although the freedom of the players will be severely limited by this.

Let me know if this helped!
