    [FREE] Character Creator

    Hi,

    I Recently uploaded a video of a little project I've been working on on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEphUHrtjm4
    It was the first time for me to do anything in UE4 but apparently people liked it so I decided to make a version for people to download.

    Note that the logic behind this project is not quite the same as the one in the video as I had to compensate a bit in order to recreate the project in a day instead of multiple weeks. (I don't have a lot of free time on my hands)
    I don't know if I will improve this project over time or not. I do "plan" on making more projects freely available in the future.

    I hope it's useful to you guys and if you decide to improve it, please share the results with everyone in this thread


    [FEATURES]
    - Material parameter influencing
    - Material instance swapping
    - Animation blending
    - Blend-shapes/Morph targets
    - Skeletal Mesh Socket spawning

    This project was originally created in UE4 4.7.6.


    [DOWNLOAD]
    UE4 4.7.6:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/tps83khi5s...eator.zip?dl=0

    This version should work with UE 4.9, 4.10 and 4.11


    If you open the project, make sure that the play button is set to "New Editor Window" (from the pull-down menu).





    Cheers

    This is wonderful. The clothes seem to morph well with the mesh which I've seen doesn't always happen. Do they function as attachments in on of themselves or just a texture applied to the mesh itself?

      I don't know if I understand the question correctly, but the clothes are separate meshes with their own morphs. The textures are also separate instances that are swapped when you press one of the buttons.

                  @DataSphere - any chance you could make a guide for adding new base meshes to the system? E.g., for adding a male character.

                  Awesome work btw

                        Thank you so very much

                        OH man.. I found this on YouTube some time ago... it is more than AWESOME.. thank you very much for releasing it to us...

                        On a second note... Would you consider building something that would be released in the Marketplace of UE ?

                        And third: Do you have someplace to donate to? I have not even see this.. but.. you have saved me a TON of time and money by doing this. I would like to donate a little mula and say a heart felt thank you. Once I can get this into Code Spartan's MMOkit I'll have the full setup to get into my game.

                        Thank you again

                          This is pretty sweet, I already have Fuse, but something integrated like this is just awesome.

                            (If you open the project, pressing "play" won't do much. you either have to package it or press play from within a blueprint file).

                            Cheers
                            Amazing Contribution. A great start for anyone interested in developing such systems. I look forward to merging it w/ Collage Constructed Armor and posting some screenshots. Thank again DataSphere.

                              I saw the Youtube video a few days ago when there was no download link, and now my eyes went O_O!
