Unreal Engine Physics Essentials

By: Devin Sherry, Vladimir Alyamkin, Katax Emperore

Overview of this book

This book gives readers practical insight into the mathematical and physics principles necessary to properly implement physics within Unreal Engine 4. Discover how to manipulate physics within Unreal Engine 4 by learning basic real-world mathematical and physics concepts that assist in the implementation of physics-based objects in your game world. Then, you'll be introduced to PhAT (Physics Asset Tool) within Unreal Engine 4 to learn more about developing game physics objects for your game world. Next, dive into Unreal Engine 4’s collision generation, physical materials, blueprints, constraints, and more to get hands-on experience with the tools provided by Epic to create real-world physics in Unreal Engine 4. Lastly, you will create a working Vehicle Blueprint that uses all the concepts covered in this book, as well as covering advanced physics-based topics.

Collision and Trace Responses – a section review


In this section, we briefly looked at the different Collision and Trace Responses that exist in Unreal Engine 4 and defined a handful of these responses. We analyzed the different Trace Responses and Object Responses that default to Unreal Engine 4, and we also defined a limited number of collision presets that are provided. Now that we have a basic understanding of Collision and Trace Responses, we can move forward and learn more about simple and complex collision in Unreal Engine 4.
