Make easy tracks, decorations or decal paths using Smooth mesh spline, Decal Spline, or scatter mesh spline.
I’ve provided this pack mostly as I’ve been missing a spline-tool where the meshes are placed at equal distances along the spline - meaning the meshs are stretched only by corners - not by how far apart the sub-points on your spline is!
The additional splines for placing decals or meshes along a spline at set distances (with some randomisation) are somewhat simpler, but very handyto have around
Note - working with large splines can be slow, I advise either:
-set the scale/spacing to a very high number, and turn down to preview when you have the spline in place
-better yet, don’t make a massive spline, make several smaller ones
Though these should be usable in production, it is intended more to be built on and customised
-1 demo map
-1 mesh (based on track mesh from AdvVehicle with more polys)
-3 materials (with some children)
-2 textures for the decal
It still feels kinda difficult to set up a decent loop or corkscrew (due to the manipulation of the spline its-self), but sure is dooable.
I’ve updated the package on gumroad - though it has been turned down from the marketplace, for being too simple (understandable)… and for being free!
This explains why there is so few free items on the marketplace… Feels like a shame not to have a large(er) pile of easily accessible free bits for UE4!
I guess it opens up room for a (not-very-profitable ) 3rd-party market though
