Content Dev:CC Accessory Creation Guide
Any hard object that does not need to conform to the body and carries with it its own set of material and textures without the assistance of Appearance Editor is considered an accessory. Piercings, glasses, hats fall under this category. Of all the asset types, accessories are the most straightforward to create, however keep the following points in mind:
- Accessories can carry bones but may not be bound to the bones of the body.
- An accessory requires a parent bone to be recognized as such.
- Accessories should carry their own custom textures and materials (no Appearance Editor).
- Attach the accessory under a parent bone.
- Export as the entire character as (*.fbx) to CC.
- Categorize and assign a layer.
- Adjust materials and textures by using the Appearance Editor.
- Store the accessory in (*.ccAcc) format.
