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"

How can I create a level from a selection of tiles (Actors that are just different floor tiles) and set them in a 12 by 12 grid?

Hi everyone,

  I'd like to apologize for my lack of experience in advance. Please bear with me.  What I want to do is use a few different actors (Floor tiles, Pits, Fire Tiles, for example. They are separate FBX files) and create a level that could be essentially randomized. While watching the "Getting started with blueprints" video series I was able to follow along and create a loop that creates a set of 12 tiles in one direction. I think that all I need to do is make an exact copy of that loop and just offset it 11 more times for it to be a 12 x 12 grid. However, I'm not sure how to do that... or even if that's the best way to accomplish what I'm setting out to do. I've attached an image of the loop that I'm running right now. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

  • Alvin!

Hi AlvinKPollard,

A good place to start would be to look at how the Blueprint Puzzle Template works. The tiles that light up on click are procedurally generated and you can easily change the grid size from the blueprints Details panel.

Another good place to look is Zeustiak's Map Generator. It's very complex but he goes into detail on how he created everything.

I hope that helps, TJ

Thanks for getting back to me so soon TJ! I really appreciate it! I am trying out your suggestions right now. I am pretty sure this is exactly what I needed but I'll let you know what happens!

Thanks again!

Alright! So far I think I'm on the right path. I took bits and pieces from both the "Blueprint Essentials - 10 - Using Loops : Procedural Level Design" Here and the Blueprint Puzzle Template you mentioned to get the effect I was looking for. I need to look at the link you provided to me a bit more before I attempt to sub-in different meshes and generate a totally procedural level. alt text

Thanks again TJ!
