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 I have different amount of elements in LODs

Hi everyone, I'm working on my first character in unreal, I managed to import everything till now, but I wanted to add a LOD1 mesh I had already prepared, the problem is that I made a quite simpler version of the character, so he has no eyes or eyebrows meshes(I simply projected them on the mesh of the LOD1's body), since I thoght as long as the model share the same skeleton it would be ok, I actually tried to load the LOD1 in persona, using import LOD level1, but it says import Failed, so I checked the manual and grouped the elements in MAX, but some elements(the eyes and eyebrows) dont have a LOD1 version, I simply wanted to use less elements, but importing this way I noticed Unreal still keeps those models from the level0 to level1, and I don't want them and there's no option to delete or to say that those elements should not pop up in the LOD1. So my question is, can I have less elements for different LODs, or should the number of elements always match? And is there another way to import a LOD for a skeletal mesh, for example importing it as a different skeletal mesh that share the same skeleton, and say to unreal to just use that skeletal mesh as a LOD1? Thanks in advance for your time.
