The Solus Project: Blueprint Introduction
The Solus Project: Blueprint Introduction is a complete and detailed training video that aims to get you up to speed in Blueprint scripting in Unreal Engine 4.
Starting from the basics, and building upon the free Solus Example project, this beginners video starts off by talking you through creating a door for Solus. First one that is set up in the level, then one that is set up in a separate Blueprint. Following that you will be building a pressure plate to control the door, and following that the video covers how to build a basic item system. Detecting, highlighting, and picking up rocks in the world, and place them on the pressure plate to keep the door open permanently.
The video comes with some of the actual content from Solus. A few dozen of our building and environment meshes, a number of our textures, materials, and particles. Also included are some of our items and sounds, and of course some of our Blueprint setups. Some of the tiling environment textures are from GameTextures.com, and thereby also give you a free sample of the service they offer.
