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"

Is it possible to create a game like Rust with UE4 engine?

I am a 3D artist and I dont have any knowledge about programming. Is it possible to create a game like Rust with blueprints that come with UE4? or do I have to write codes (C, C++)? I really want to make a game (like Rust) with UE4, however, I dont have any one that knows programming stuff. Can anyone give me some suggestions how to make a first person shooting survival game on my own without programmers. I dont know if it's even possible to make a game like that on my own?

Any help and suggestion are appreciated. Thanks.

Theoretically, its possible. But its quite difficult to make a really big game all by yourselves. From my personal experience, having atlest one other partner is a good thing. I tried to create several games (all of them small games) by myself. But I did not finish most of them. At some point, you will start losing motivation, running into road-blocks. I mean its always good to have some one to discuss things with and to get new ideas.

At the moment, I have a friend(an artist) working with me on this project that I am working on. Theoretically I could have done it all by myself but having him makes things much easier.

So in your case, you can make a third person/first person survival game or any other game you need all by yourselves. With the introduction of blueprints, you dont have to worry too much about programming (although it is a huge plus). You don't have to learn C++, just any programming language will do. The reason is once you start programming/scripting in a high-level language, you will start seeing problems differently which will help you build things that needs some logic (like AI).

I am a programmer basically, but I do some art as well (modelling, texturing..).I am not an expert when its comes to art. But having a general idea about how an artist would do certain things helps me when building new stuff. Conversly if you are an artist by profession, having basic idea of programming will help you with a lot of things.

So the answer to your question: Can you make a decent game by yourselves with UE4: YES!. But it depends on you. and how determined you are. The genre of game does not matter. Yet having someone with you will help it a lot (trust me)

Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciated it. I am aware that this is going be extremely difficult specially when I am new to UE and the game making process. I just wanted to know how far I have to go to make a game like this. I almost determined to learn C++ before I read your comment. I can imagine if Ii have to learn C++, I will want to kill myself. :D You saved so much work for me. Thank you. And I completely agree your point of understanding basic programming helps me and I think I will have a look into it. Once again, thank you so much for you help, I really appreciated it.

Have a nice day. :)
