    Hey gang,

    just updated to beta 18

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/efzf6qh7ne9icpx/FabricForUnreal-4.14.3-beta18.exe?dl=0

    The Beta 18 release presents a new and disruptive approach on how data is imported- by introducing Import Patterns.

    Unfortunately, this major change breaks backwards compatibility and some features have been removed in the current state.

    Please see the first post in this thread for further details.

    Regards!

    Hey gang,

    just updated to beta 19.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/mesdve2lj9mp5ng/FabricForUnreal-4.15.0-beta19.exe?dl=0

    Beta 19 adds the following changes:

    • Updated to Unreal Engine 4.15.0
    • Fixed a series of bugs concerning scaling
    • Fixed a bug concerning the collision volume generation
    • Introducing support for behaviors

    Behaviors are a powerful new feature which let you describe interactive / animated behaviors for each actor already in the Canvas Import Pattern. The behavior is then applied inside Unreal engine as a Component.

    A good example is a door. You might already know in the source file which actors are going to be doors. You can then apply the behavior to each door in the Import Pattern programmatically and Fabric will apply the right components within Unreal.

    The plugin also ships with an example Import Pattern for this, called BehaviorDemo. It applies the Rotating Movement component as well as a custom component to each actor. To try this out create a custom blueprint component called MyBehavior in the root of your Unreal project. The BehaviorDemo pattern will then apply the Rotating Movement component as well as your own custom blueprint component to each actor.

    Let us know what you think!

    Regards!
