Part of the functionality one gets with the Play+ purchase is the ability to import character attachments and hand held attachments. Is there any documentation or tutorials on how to accomplish this?

I'm not sure if there is a wiki page but it is down at the moment so I can't check
but the basic principle is

a) load an old style "potato head" character
b) Right click>edit
c) choose body part want to attach to (most have option to attach) - if it has a small mesh box as one of the alternatives you can attach
d) click on import box and select a file (.ase or .fbx)
e) use location rotation and scale to adjust

there are also some ready made attachments for the left and right hands where you can also change the hand shape to adjust the grip

yeah load a character and choose a body part and hit import then adjust the thing not complicated really.

Thank you, this has been tremendously helpful. I assume, if a character is holding something, none of the actions used on a character will interferewith the holding of said object?

What if the action itself has the hand in an open state? Will it open if I use that action? I know it don't "drop" the object, but it might not look right if their hand is open and there's something stuck to their palm...

it will always grip the object no matter what. there are about five different grips to choose, fist,phone,wrap,whistle and splay.
and you can choose how much you want to grip the object. so a fist grip could be tightly gripped or loosely gripped depending on where you put the slider.

and pencil is another grip.

I know one thing about the hand attachments, I wish the scale range was a bit more. I need a banana, and I have an FBX of one, but even scaled at the highetst valuem, it's still too small. Guess I need to find a modeler and create a new banana...
