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"

Just create a humanoid in a program such ask Maya/ 3ds max but upside down, or in whatever position you want them. During the animation process you can make it like they are swaying in the window or just stiff. Create them as asset.

As the previous comment you would need to make a body of some sort but what you could do is look into splines and create a rope from splines and then let the mesh be affected by for example a wind or the character moving into them which will allow them to sway around.

More info on splines: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Videos/PLZlv_N0_O1ga0aV9jVqJgog0VWz1cLL5f/wR0fH6O9jD8/
