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"

How would I create a Ragdoll / PhysX Tongue?

I've searched around through the documentation , the forums and on here but cannot find anything regarding this.

I currently have a cartoon dinosaur modelled for my game, with bones - but before skinning I want to figure out how I would go about achieving this.

What I am trying to get, is the dinosaur itself will have an animated walk cycle, whilst the tongue would just be a ragdoll or other physics based object (unsure on terminology, physics are new to me) that just flaps and lolls around in an amusing manner, using physics simulation.

I'm completely unsure on where to start. So far I've un-parented the tongue bones from the body, and plan on rigging the dinosaur and the tongue as two separate skeletal meshes as I assume that I would attach the tongue inside the engine.

How would I use this in Unreal 4 to achieve the desired result?
