Additional features of Unreal Engine 3.
Build a gorgeous world and then let your players crush it to pieces. Unreal Engine 3’s fracturing tool and runtime enable you to take virtually any existing mesh, slice it up into as many fragments as desired, and destroy structures. Unreal Engine 3 supports the destruction of everything from metal to cloth, bringing more realism and interaction to your environment.
Unreal Engine 3’s fracture tool makes it possible to create remarkably interactive, deformable worlds. Easily craft all types of destructible environments and objects that break apart just as you would expect them to in real life. Splinter walls and floors layer by layer. Blow apart rocky structures chunk by chunk. Add cool physics elements and particle effects. Unreal Engine gives you total control over destruction.
Destructible environments enable scene elements to break apart and collapse realistically.
Whether you’re building a photorealistic world or a highly stylized environment, you can make any mesh crumble to pieces with Unreal Engine 3’s structural analysis tool.
