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"

There are plenty of ways you chould achieve this. Unreal Engine 4 even comes with a built-in damage system for Actors. You could use that, or if it doesn't suit your needs, you could make your own. Without knowing the specific implementations of your project, it's hard to give any specific advice.

Given that you've got networking and some less than basic animations going on, it shouldn't be too hard to do either of these things. That is, unless you've copied most of the things and not made much of it yourself. In which case, your game might a bit too ambitious. If that is the case, I'd advice you to start with something smaller and learn the basics first. The only thing anyone ever achieves by starting out with something too ambitious is frustrating themselves to the point of quitting and giving up game development.

Honestly, it's hard to answer without knowing the structure of your project. It could potentially be a big job, or it could be a small one. I don't know what your blueprint classes look like or how you've coded what you currently have. Without knowing that, I can't offer any specific advice on how to do what you're trying to do.

Honestly, it really sounds like you're slightly in over your head here. Did you follow tutorials to get to this point? I think you might just need some more experience with the engine before you're ready to tackle this project.
