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"

Choice between BP types, and basic Blueprints and C++

Hi folks I have some questions about blueprints: If I want to make a first person survival game, which blueprint should I use? I think its either first person bp or third person bp. I know for the thirst person template, I can adjust the camera to make it look like first person. For a first person survival game however, it's not much about shooting, that is why I also don't know should I use a fps blueprint?

Additionally, can the basic blueprints fulfill the needs of scripting codes such as special behavior tree or character AI? I dont know much about coding, so I dont know the difference between a basic blueprint and a C++ bp. If it's for making games, which one would be better for people who just started learning coding?

If I use a basic blueprint for the game, and later I find that I must use a c++ template to complete something, will I be able to import the c++ blueprint into my basic bp?

You can use C++ and blueprints hand in hand :)

I guess you would use the first person one. It doesn't really matter. they are just basic code to get you started. You can do anything in any of them!. If you want to use code later, you just have to click the button to add them !

Thank you! When you are saying hand to hand, do you mean use both basic bp and c++ in combination?

yep! I was scared about that too when i first started . Now I use C++ and blueprint together (I don't script though but you can)

I see. So are you saying that I can use c++ to write codes and import it into my basic template? I thought that basic blueprints dont support c++

I even made a tutorial about attaching C++ to blueprints :P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmVod59HJks

You can write code in any CObject class in c++ and just "share" it to blueprint. In next step just use directly C++ class or create BP and reparent to C++ class to add some new functions.
