HINT FOR UNREAL ENGINE BEGINNERS You should be aware that our showcase maps in general can be used as a beginner. Though, if you want to extend or customize the Blueprint logic, we recommend advanced Unreal Engine knowledge. We always do our best to support our customers as comprehensively as possible, but please, understand that we cannot help with learning all engine basics.

Please check out the wiki/Videos before buying and ask if something is unsure.

Muscularity/weight options are in dev for the Meta/UE5 skeleton. We plan to release an alternative/updated version without the need to create Moprhtargets outside of Unreal. More Info will come once the system is fleshed out and rdy for production.

*** Metahuman Update December 2021 ***

Added additional anatomy support for Metahumans - basecostumes have been converted to Metahuman tal nrw.

Editor logic is not compatible with Metahuman BP base structure like weight, UI Sliders for Eye variation etc - we are looking into streamline our Ue4 Mannequin with a full release of Ue5. Base product is Ue4 Epic skeleton structure.

Keep in mind the core of this product is developed with the UE4 Mannequin base in mind.

Children are not part of the UE5 Skeleton update.

These clothing assets are exemplary and there might be in some cases small intersection.

That's not "uncommon" in games. 


  • Faces come with ~80 Morphtargets - FACS-based morphs ready for facial animations with ARKit
  • Data Assets are used to combine unique characters from different types. Data Assets are split into various child classes like apparel (hats, upperbody, lowerbody etc.) and hairstyles (hair and beards) as well as prepared placeholder attachment and equipment classes
  • Clothing: ~ 27 per gender + 20 for childs.
  • Hairstyles: 7x male, 5x female, 5x child
  • Multiple skeletons are supported Childs are included as well - childs "examples" do not have any weight/muscularity morphs functionality. This feature is mainly developed for grown ups.
  • Anatomy Profiles support you to add more RPG-like characters like dwarfes, elves, orcs
  • Basic Wrinklemaps WIP for more believable facial expressions
  • Different skin basetextures + skintint as well
  • Randomize, SaveGame system to save and load customization profiles
