Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

RPG Leveling System, Skill Trees, Party Companions

I am new to UE4, are there any tuts or blueprint walkthroughs for an RPG style character leveling system, Skill trees, or party companions? These are all things that I would be interested in incorporating into my project! Thank you ahead of time, and sorry if this is an overly noob question.

Hi,

I don't think that currently there are any specific Unreal Engine 4 tutorials regarding this. It's still very early days in this regard for the type of tutorial content available.

(No such thing as a noob question, if you have asked it someone else is probably wondering but afraid to ask!)

Well, the UE4 answer hubs isn't your regular forum. Here, it's just developers like us sharing insight we have learned over the years. I am wondering about the skill trees part of this myself.

You might want to check out Articy:Draft by nevigo if you are in the process of designing skill tree and party content. It's great for that.

Hopefully, given the exposed source code and friendly devs, someone will make an API for articy to UE4 in time.

Anyway, within UE4, before you make those things you have to learn about - Saving var values as data on disk (or you'll only be able to level up within one game session) - UI, especially text and text inputs (like user enters character name) - Comparing the input string to see if it's valid and otherwise matching it during run-time - Conditions for figuring out which exp. level is current or next or which skill - States and switches for changing anything relevant based on what level is current

Do you know any free softwares like this? I don't have many euros on hand. (I live in the US) and their site takes euros only, even if you click the "I don't live in the EU" option. My money is also pretty tight.
