Add tool

You can extend the list of tools in SkyReal with yours.

  • First you need to have the model you want to use as a tool inside the editor map in Unreal Engine. The data can come from the preparation or from a fbx.

  • Create a new actor: right click in the content browser and create a Blueprint Class. Choose the class SkrTool and save it anywhere under the Simulation folder.

  • In the World Outliner select the parts you want to use as a tool, then do right click > Convert Actors To Static Mesh and save it anywhere under the Simulation folder. If you have only one static mesh you can directly use it in the next step.

  • Double click on the new SkrTool blueprint to open it. Drag and drop the new StaticMesh under the root StaticMeshComponent of the blueprint.

  • You can set the name that will be displayed in SkyReal (display name) in the details panel of the tool. To get the Skr panel, the root component of the tool must be selected.
