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"

VR - How to go about creating a step-by-step system for an instructional application?

Hi All!

As the title states, how do I go about creating a step-by-step system in Unreal Engine 4.21 (and versions beyond)?

To be more specific, I am working on an application which will require the user to follow specific steps as follows: "Step 1:" (example) - user follows step then "step 2:" and so on.

I have researched into this and have tried to find resources to try and assist with this but, I cannot seem to find much at all.

I would also like to know whether these sort of things require me to use Level blueprints or just normal blueprints (or both) to pull this off?

Also please understand that I am very new to blueprints and that I am working at a very basic level so please do keep it as specific and simple as/if possible, Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.21

For some of our training, we create Enums and can be used basically as a state machine. I would do this in the GameMode so that it's easily accessible from other blueprints. Try creating a master custom event called Next Step and pass the Enum(Enums are created in the Content Browser and states are easily added to it) through it and then do a "Switch on Enum - (Name of your Enum)" Now when you're in your pawn, get your game mode and cast to your game mode and call your Next Step event and set the value of the state/enum while passing it through the event. In your game mode this will now fire and go through the correct exec pin. Make sure you manage when and where you are setting the Enum and make sure you're always setting the Enum reference that is IN THE GAME MODE only, setting multiple references to different enums will not work properly. I suggest creating a variable of the enum in your game mode. Let me know if this helps and feel free to ask more specific questions.

Here is a quick example I set up alt text

@imaekgames That is very useful information to know, I will be sure to research into it and try to apply this to what I am trying to achieve with my application. If I do find myself getting a bit stuck with it I hope you wouldn't mind me tagging you here?

However, if I find that this answers my question I will be sure to mark your answer as the solution :)

I appreciate that! :)

Just a quick one, when doing this, which class of Blueprints would I pick for this method? (Sorry I'm an absolute newbie to anything to do with blueprints)
