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"

Player character diversity (TPS)

A question about how to create character diversity in a TPS.

I am trying to find out what is the preferred way to handle multiple character meshes and clothing items within UE4 (this question is more around the base meshes rather than providing diversity via different coloured textures etc).

Are separate meshes made for the character mesh with each clothing combination merged (ie. base character A mesh with Jacket style 1 & Trousers style 1, another character mesh with base character A and jacket style 2 and trousers style 1 etc), or is there a way to supply a base character mesh and then 'attach' clothing meshes to it depending on what the player has chosen for their character to wear ?.

I am just starting with learning to model and this will give a better idea of which direction to go in for the game player characters I would like to do.
