Mutable for Unreal Engine 4 | Enum Parameter Node
Updated 168 Days AgoPublic


Function

Exposes and defines a parameter offering multiple choices to modify the Customizable Object. Also defines a default one among them. It's abstract, does not define what type those options refer to. What exactly choses among is defined in one or multiple linked switch nodes. Switch nodes of any combination of types can have their options defined by the same enum parameter. This allows changing textures, meshes, colors and numbers at the same time when a single enum parameter changes.


Use Cases

Change a mesh that can have at most one version active at any time, like offer the option to chose what glasses is a character wearing, if any.
Change the emblem that's stitched to the shoulder-pad, knee-cap and shield of an armored knight.
Offer many different cybernetig implants to the ear area of a character, changing the mesh and the underlying texture at the same time for visual consistency.
