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 do I create an inventory for a VR first person game?

I'm creating a virtual reality game, and I need to create an inventory so the player can save the weapons while running. The inventory will have to be saved when the player leaves the game, so when he returns continue with the same items.

Product Version: UE 4.22

Precisely the same way you would create an inventory in any non-VR game with minor changes depending on how you want to access the system itself.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxqSkFNAzE0 This is a good starting point, but may be too intricate for VR, it's easily scaled down if there are too many features for you.

If the game is online, PlayerState can be used to create persistent inventories.

If the game is offline, I would save the players game frequently, when they pick up items, use consumables, die, etc.
