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"

Integrating Unreal Editor and a physical simulation framework

Hello everyone.

I started a new project recently, which consists of developing a new GUI for a physical simulation framework.

One of the tools considered was Unreal Engine, because the editor is similar to what a physical simulation GUI could look like, plus it already implements scene edition tools, allows great extensibility with plugins, and has other advantages which I won't list here.

The final goal is to allow the user to edit the simulation's scene via the Unreal Editor's advanced tools, then simulate the scene in the physical simulation framework while displaying it in the Editor's viewport.

Now a prototype is developed slowly but surely, as a plugin. The scene edition with the Editor can be realized, assuming you can add UProperty's at runtime with C++.

Next big step is animating the simulation while displaying it.

However, because I am far from being an expert with UE, I'd like to know if someone more experienced than me with UE sees an insuperable difficulty, considering what we are trying to achieve.

Thanks in advance !
