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"

hmm so create a building system then. it shouldnt be much different than building foundations. u just snap one foundation to another. if you know how to use ue4 well enough u can build the system yourself or just try searching up a tutorial.

You can create several rail track BPs (straight, turnning, intersection, switches) and add splines to them. You can use the splines for trains movement, and I believe you can use splines' extreme points to snap tracks to each other. If not, you can always add soskets to tracks meshes.

what you need can be easily achieved with splines and then move an object (in your case the train) along its path. there is a rollercoaster plugin already available open source that you can have a look at https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Rollercoaster_Plugin
