Summary

In this chapter, we discussed what Physics Bodies are and how they function in Unreal Engine 4. Moreover, we looked at the properties that are involved in Physics Bodies and how these properties can affect the behavior of these bodies in the game.

Next, we explored what Angular and Linear Damping are and how they can affect our Physics Bodies. We also discussed real-world physics when it comes to linear and angular momentum, apart from linear and angular velocities.

Additionally, we briefly discussed Physical Materials, how to create them, and what their properties entail when it comes to affecting its behavior in the game. We then reviewed how to apply Physical Materials to static meshes, materials, material instances, and skeletal meshes. ...
