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"

Applying dynamic damage to skeletal mesh

I'm looking for some easy steps to take to apply a damage effect to NPC's. I've looked at some possible solutions online but they all seem rather expensive, especially in my case since I have multiple enemies coming at the player at once and I'm developing for VR.

I'm trying to accomplish a damage effect that isn't as costly as the Ryan Bruck’s method. I looked into Tom Looman's method as well but since each hit will cause major increase in shader complexity after a few hits it is quite the overkill. Decals obviously float on the skeletal mesh so it's a no-go as well.

Has anyone found a simpler solution to rendering damage?
