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"

  1. Create a humanoid figure as you normally would, and do all of your animations.

  2. Export the body parts (which can be broken) individually as Static meshes and make them distructibles.

  3. Remove those same parts from your figure mesh before you export it (and the animations) for use in UE4. (so you are importing just animations without the breakable body parts)

  4. Create the character using the 'empty' skeletal mesh - and add the destructible meshes of each body part, parenting them to the respective bones.


You end up with a character that looks/moves normally but the body parts are actually DMs attached to an empty skeleton rather than the body mesh itself.
