    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

*** Update 1.1.0 - Fully modular physics assets


List of tested assets from the Marketplace

Compatible with GoreSystem for 4.25+ projects (Doc. pag. 27-33)

This plugin manages modular skeletal meshes merging them into a single mesh. This will reduce drawcalls, increasing GPU performances. This system can also add and remove modular parts at runtime managing accurate collisions.

// Console enabled: stat gpu / stat scenerendering / show collision


// The performance test will merge together different Skeletal Meshes, you'll see the difference between MasterPoseComponent and Skeletal Mesh Merge methods.

(You can see the list of skeletal meshes involved on the top left of the screen)
