A Few Questions From an Upcoming UE4 Abuser

So, the crappy computer I am using is sadly dying, yet I will pleasure myself with a new laptop and PC within two months. And I really need to know a few questions.

Does UE4 have a Steam “integration?” system that when you networking, the Steam username with go into UE4?
Is there a dismemberment system? I’ve heard that you have to use separate meshes.
And finally, can you use multiple animations at once? (Legs crouching/moving and arms holding a weapon)

I hope I will get positive feedback, but I know I will since everyone here has been so helpful to each other.

  1. it depends on what exactly you mean -> e.g you can “destroy” meshes with the destruction tool
  2. Yep. This series will teach you everything about characters and animations -> 3rd Person Game with Blueprints (pre. v4.8) - YouTube :slight_smile:

There is a free plugin going around, to help with Steam integration.

Yes, read up about animation montages. This will allow you to tell Unreal to run an animation on only a part of the skeleton. Yes, most commonly running with a weapon.:rolleyes:

And welcome! :slight_smile:

Thank you, Jez and fighter. Looking forward to having fun with UE4.
