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"

Blueprinting a character death that triggers the player to become a "ghost".

In either ue 15 or 16 i would like to use blueprint to create a playable character that when the character dies the player will then become a ghost with new ways to interact with other players. Kind of like what Treyarch did in COD black ops 2 zombies: mob of the dead called the afterlife. I am wondering if this is possible in unreal engine 4.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Make a separate player character, that has expropriate art to be a "zombie ghost", make a player controller that has special functionality for said un-dead, when boring living player character dies, spawn ghoulish character in its place then possess it by zombified controller - theoretically you could also keep the same controller, just make a separate state for all the inputs that's branched to by a "un_dead_now" bool variable, and simply change the player character.

// In short this is both easy and very very hard, there are no shortcuts to it and it might be hard to find a tutorial that's that specific, but start by making a normal character, learn that - then incorporate your dead now alternative controls. Definitely doable, just needs some work.
