TRAILER | TUTORIAL PLAYLIST


The Next Gen Destruction Toolkit is a simple-to-use framework for integrating Chaos Destruction into your project. It provides easy to use data asset-based definitions for destructibles that allow self-contained responses to bullet impacts, breaking, trailing etc. This allows a user to very quickly create a destructible and populate its behaviours with realistic breaking behaviour, particle effects and sounds.


Please note: If using the 5.3 version of this asset, it's recommended to update to UE 5.3.1 or above or you may experience a crash on startup due to a bug fixed in 5.3.1. Alternatively you can disable Nanite in the DefaultEngine ini with 'r.Nanite.ProjectEnabled=False', but this will result in a performance impact.

Important info/notes: Please note that this asset is designed to make use of the graphics features introduced in UE5: Nanite, Lumen, and VSM. There is a 'performance consideration' map that goes over performance optimization for lower-end hardware, but it should be noted that the majority of assets currently are designed with Nanite in mind.
