The Heavy Armour pack comes with different Armoursets for Light Fantasy games.


Product Overview


Heavy Armour is compatible with Character Editor and our Medieval Armour products.

Basic Integration example


Quixel Medieval Environment walkthrough.


Multiple SK Itemgroups: hats, hairs, heads, chests are ready to be assembled your own unique medieval warrior.


Diiferent factiontyps: Darkknights, Orks, barbarian or even a Knight. The pack gives you a basic start point to fill your fantasy world with Characters from different armour categories

 

Each equipment uses a master material and a mask texture, which allow you to tweak its visual appearance in detail. Each body part can be tweaked manually.

 

For compatibility to other asset packs (like carrying baggage or reading a journal), the delivered skeletal meshes are skinned to the UE4 skeleton and main- and off-hand pivots are aligned to its hand grip. Main- and off-hand slots are also prepared in the Blueprints to receive your data.


No Facial Animation included right now. Our Basic ARKit Blendshape set is made with the Character Editor.
