    This product contains a full Unreal Engine project folder, complete with Config files, Content files and .uproject file, which can be used as a template to create a new project.

Thank you for downloading Dark Knight Character With Top Down Character System.

This package has customizable character which can perform basic actions

and is ready to be included in your game whether its a top down, RTS or hack and slash.

The characters are set up so that you can easily extend their functionality or make 

your own characters in a similar manner using this system.

In this package you will find a rigged and animated basic default character, as well as 

dark knight riding a horse which inherits blueprint logic from it. 

This way editing and branching into new characters will be very easy.

We are planning on releasing more elaborated characters in this way in future.

Main blueprints included are the BP_Character and BP_DarkKnight 

There is also BP_Character_Data and a widget WBP_CharacterPanel - which help initialize and control characters in the test level. In the game characters can be controlled using the aforementioned widget and demonstrate 

various functionality such as, walking, turning, attacking, customizing features, dying etc...

The characters are fully rigged. They are not compatible with default epic skeleton, but naming convention is the same.

Re targeting and remapping of any unreal animation should be easy and smooth. IK bones are included.

In case you wanted to create more animations or edit existing ones - source Maya animation files and rigs are included as well. 

Character do not have lower LODs set up.

Project includes sound effects for all characters. As characters perform different actions the sounds

will be played automatically. Footsteps will adjust to character armor type. This can all be configured or disabled.

For dark knight characters we included weapons with sounds and animations such as:

sword, vampire sword, mace, bow, crossbow, shield, spear and throwing spear - weapons can be combined and configured in the menu

This character does not have multiple armor variants.

There are 8 animated cloth cape variants which can be switched in the menu displaying in the test level.

There are 4 different head props (helmets) which can be switched in the menu

You can change character colors by overriding the RGBA value in the menu.
