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"

Starting off in ue4

Hi everybody. I just wanted someone to tell me how i can make a third person shooter. I am having trouble attaching a gun to the character. Also, how can one shoot projectiles from the weapon? I also want to know where i can aquire meshes for guns, bullets and AI. If I can't get any free meshes, how can I make one. I've looked around around on the web, but can't find anything.

Start by examining the templates and content example projects, the content examples go over most features that are normally used and explain them.

add your gun to a "socket" on your model

Look up any 3d Asset store - theres heaps.

TO make it, you need a 3d modeling software, Blender is free

Theres a learn button at the top of the screen that contains information on almost everything

Also, if you cant find anything after looking around on the web....... when there are many thousands of places for information all easily accessible via google or available in the Epic Launcher.... Good Luck

Thanks, but I can't seem to get anything from the content examples, as they don't have any TPS Games. Do you have any links to gun attaching vids?
