MAGES™ Objects

In order for a Unreal project to run with the MAGES SDK, it is essential to have inside the Unreal level specific actors derived from specific classes used as managers and controllers of the different functionalities of MAGES SDK.

Scene Management Object


RigidBodyAnimationController (Required)

Enables and handles the usage of GA’s Dual Quaternions.

UserPathTracer (Required)

Computes and stores data regarding the user’s session.

Scene Graph (Required)

When the projects start, all LSAs will be created as children of this particular actor. In addition this actor requires the ScenegraphPathDefinitions data asset where critical information is stored regarding the project’s structure.

DeletedBucket (Required)

Nothing needs to be attached. This is handled from the Alternative Path (careful, it must not be an Alternative path’s child!)

AlternativePathBucket (Required)

This is the responsible actor for all the alternative LSAs (Lessons Stages Actions). Add the Alternative path and Alternative Path Importer components.

MagesControllers (Required)
