UPDATE March 2020: Added a completely automatic crane blueprint that will move items to a target point without the need to be controlled. ONLY 4.24 version

  • Physic constraint based tower crane Blueprint (not rigged) using physic constraints and static meshes for the animation of the cable.
  • Can lift items and move them around in the scene automatically.
  • Completely customizable just by changing static meshes.
  • Items to lift can be of any type and all it's made using a Blueprint.
  • The cable is made using instanced static mesh components to minimize the performance cost and only the most important part is provided with collision and physic simulation
  • Fully working 3D HUD inside the cabin to provide information on the crane.
  • Rust can be added or removed according to your needs. You can also change the rust type because it's on a separate texture.
  • 4096x4096 textures for diffuse and normals
  • The crane can be as tall as you need just by changing the amount of modules below the main A section using an integer value in the blueprint settings.
  • All the static meshes have 2 texture sets, one using a texture atlas (overlapping) and one for the lightning (non overlapping)
