CM Labs’ Vortex Studio plugin for Unreal Engine enables users to conduct multi-body dynamics simulations within Unreal Engine using Vortex Studio, thereby harnessing its advanced simulation framework.


By integrating Vortex Studio with Unreal, users can:

  • Simulate advanced multi-body dynamics mechanisms in an Unreal level.
  • Expose simulation parameters to Unreal blueprints (get/set) and easily incorporate them into the Unreal level.
  • Automatically detect landscape components created in Unreal around a simulated vehicle.
  • Provide position and orientation of each simulated body to Unreal Engine, along with parameters and outputs that ensure smooth gameplay through accurate synchronization and realistic movements.
  • Manage external hardware devices, such as motion platforms or CANopen compliant devices, to control vehicles and enhance simulations.
  • Utilize any diggable or deformable terrain created in Vortex Studio within the Unreal Editor and packaged game, maintaining the same degree of fidelity expected from Vortex Studio's physics-based soil simulation.

テクニカルノート

Features
  • Enables high-fidelity vehicle dynamics in Unreal, as demonstrated in this video: https://youtu.be/2Jc1ii7iE0Y
  • Facilitates the import of Vortex vehicles to Blueprints and provides the position of Vortex objects
  • Capable of detecting Unreal landscape meshes and managing simple or complex collisions with static objects around Vortex mechanisms
  • Maps Vortex advanced material properties to Unreal physical materials for precise friction calculation
  • Compatible with both Unreal Blueprints and source projects


Number of C++ classes: 10 - Number of Blueprints: 0 - Supported OS: Win11 64bit


The plugin requires a licensed Vortex Studio Create when editing Vortex mechanisms.




Requirements:


Unreal games using Vortex Studio must be licensed according to CM Labs Simulation Inc. commercial terms.
