This library is essentially engine independent, but it also simulates a much more accurate system with higher performance, support for multi-threaded and async simulation.

Can now simulate cloth, either procedurally created sheets or by converting Static Meshes into Cloth, with collision, attachments, tension constraints, drag modifiers, applied forces and physically simulated wind with support for Occlusion! And volume preserving soft-bodies are coming soon followed by fluids.

The beauty of using a particle based simulation is that you are never limited in what you can create out of particles and constraints.

Another big feature of the VICO Dynamics physics library; is that it runs on the CPU. This means it supports a wide variety of platforms: PC/Mac/Linux, Mobile and Console! No dependencies to any hardware. Has been tested on Windows/Linux/Mac, Xbox One, PS4/Pro and Nintendo Switch. NOTE: Console access requires source and that the UE4 Plugin itself is WIP for Linux and Android (supported, but not production ready just yet).
