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"

What's the best way to create a multi-part sprite?

I want to create a character out of multiple sprite (body, head, legs, etc) - is there a way to do this in the editor right now with paper 2d? Or would I still need to create this in an external tool like maya or blender?

I would love to know the answer to this myself =) As far as I know you cannot easily do this. But I would think there should be some sort of work around. I've built my 2D character in Blender and rigged him with a skeleton and have him animated, but I cannot get him to import into UE4 while retaining his textures/materials. They come in to the engine with the import fine, but are not applied to his meshes. I'd much rather be able to do this within the game engine itself if at all possible!
