The Advanced Character Kit was developed to meet a need for a character system capable of taking full advantage of Torque Game Engine's functionality. ACK was designed with a Torque MMO or RPG in mind, a game or project in which the character art must support a number of advanced features beyond what's been offered in the past. In addition, we have included working engine source examples and demonstration GUI's to make sure all developers, from beginner to advanced, can utilize the features included.
You get six precompiled male characters. Four are themed and have been optimized for beginners to drop in as an instant replacement characters (Military, Casual, Medieval, Post-Apoc). Also included is a nude pre-compiled character for reference. The 'Advanced' character build includes the complete mesh stack (all clothing pieces) and is capable of taking advantage of all features included in the pack.
Each character build supports skin-swapping per group, so you can choose from four races, and re-skin you clothing pieces, bodies, and mounted equipment separately in real-time for endless combination's... literally.
Clothing and Equipment
The pack comes with a stack of over 25 clothing pieces (such as pants, shirts, armor, robes, gloves, cape, apron, shoes, boots, belt, vests and more). Body parts and clothing all have their own groups for total control over hiding meshes to optimize the look and performance, as well as individual control over each part for re-skinning in-game (%obj.setSkinName() per mesh group). In addition to the clothing pieces that are pre-rigged and have 4 LODs, the kit also includes mountable accessories like: hair, facial hair, helmets, visor, bandoleer, and a sword for melee combat! All objects include script and source files, and were built to support skin-swapping.
Click, Click, Click
The pack also comes with a GUI system to demonstrate all of the features it's capable of, as well as give specific examples of the scripts and source code needed. You click a box and change Race (body and head textures), show and hide clothing pieces (mesh hiding), mount hair and other equipment (mountEquipment), and play and blend animations all from GUI in game: Out of the box!
