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"

The foliage spawning tool is meant to be used to create organic looking worlds, it is definitely not thought for voxel based worlds like Minecraft. I am afraid you will have to build a customer spawning system which aligns your blocks to a 3D grid.

Many people have worked on re-creating a Minecraft-like interaction in UE4. This is a particularly good series, but it is C++ based and right now still unfinished:

Have also a look at this Forum thread:

You may find useful tips on how to implement your game.

Last but not least, have a look here: https://sellfy.com/p/Ho2F/

I don't know how good this toolkit is and I never used it myself. Make sure you contact the author to ask all your question before deciding to purchase it.

Good luck with your project!

Hi Marco,thanks for your answer,If i make a world with those blocks i've created with cinema 4d and then i import the world i made into unreal?is that a solution?or it will be some errors while i "program" the map?

I could work, but you will not know for sure until you try. If you want to be able to "mine" your world, which means destroy the voxels, make sure you import each one as a separate mesh otherwise that will not be possible.

Thank you,So to make a game like i said i need to make it with C++ and not with blueprint??is that the only way?is there any other way to make it without C++?(Because i don't know anything about C).....Also...is there any program that make 3D grid as you said for making that?

Very likely it is possible to do it also with Blueprints, you should try to look up some tutorials or ask on the Forum thread I mentioned above. Have a look at the last resource I linked. That is a toolkit which could help you. Contact the author and ask all your questions before buying it.
