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"

Can animated characters have animated collision meshes

Can the collision meshes for characters that have animations be animated as well and move with the animations to use for instance in a fighting game?

Collisions for animated characters are per bone, meaning where the bone goes, that collision volume goes with it.

For example, your character's forearm bone will have a cylinder wrapped around it, when your character's forearm rotates/moves, the cylinder will also rotate/move to follow.

Thank you. Maybe for what I'm thinking i will have to add extra bones as I want to try to make animated colissions such as the ones from fighting games where bounding boxes are animated and can be enlarged or moved to different parts of the character.
