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 can I show specific Body Part Damage?

I was looking at the Event Hit event and working out how to handle damage. I want to allocate damage to specific body parts and have different things happen (like limping if you broke a leg) with a bloodied limb for the one that was hurt.

My question is: Can I use the "My Comp - The Component on the executing Actor that was hit" to find the limb that was hit and tell it to switch it for the damaged one? I'm not a 3D modeler and I haven't yet switched out the character model in the template but I plan to eventually. To do the way I'm thinking here, I'd need each body part to be a separate model, because every component is a separate model, right? Would that be bad?

Basically, is this the way to go about doing this, or is there an easier/simpler way?

You can get the bonename from the hitresult. Using the bone name you can manipulate your skeletal mesh. I imagine for body part damage you would be hiding specific bones and swapping in or spawning new models as the result of certain damage.
