    blueprint database website?

    edit :

    We are throwing together a free sharing database for blueprints.

    -I will coordinate this venture here, and if a forum mod says that is unsuitable, then i will move it over to my own forum : http://experience.freeforums.org/

    -If Epic games has legal issue with this, please notify me here or on vrmmo@yahoo.com , and i will cease instantly, i am just an indie dev with 1 pc, and i almost got sued once, it was horrible, i just want to build fun games and make a system more efficient.

    original 1st post :

    Hi!

    Is there a blueprint database website?

    Although this forum is very very helpfull and handy, wouldn`t it be awesome if there was a website where you could enter a search like "AI random walking" and then you would see the example and could even download it and integrate it into your own project...

    I have tweeted Epic Games about who owns a blueprint legally, i will post here when i get a reply. Does Epic games own a blueprint as a child-IP of UE4? Does the subscriber own a blueprint that he made? etc....

    I will share one now that worked for me, its a teleport, and teleport back. Imagine you could just type this, download it, drag it into a folder and it worked! Let`s all work together and share!

    Im not gonna build this site, i don`t know how...

    This is not lazyness, this is the streamlining of our efforts as well as improving general efficiency! Make a website with a karma system, see who is seeding original content, see who is leeching. Browse blueprints , download them, donation system, optional monitising, etc.

      This sounds like a fun idea, I think I will have to get on this.

        lets charge a few % from the blueprint sales, for server costs and reward the top blueprint makers, but the idea should be free blueprints in an easy way to share and download, to help us all make better games!

        sometimes what i am looking for is a blueprint with only 3 boxes and 2 wires, but finding it online is taking 45 minutes, i reather spent that time elsewhere....

          Nah, it will be totally free. People can post what they want to share. No sales of any kind involved. I am going to create it and host it off my VPS that I use for Gorilla Gong.

            This is how I think the marketplace should work, but epic is really stingy and slow with the marketplace. Granted if you want it to be free, just add it to the wiki. That's exactly the free version of the marketplace.

              The wiki is not efficient for finding specific Blueprints. I think I will toss together something specifically for posting and finding very particular scripts, dedicated to Blueprints only. Again, no marketplace of any kind involved, if it gets so big that I need to upgrade my VPS later, then I might find a way to advertise on it.

                That is a pleasant and rapid development! Thank you .

                I do think you should have a donate button , for if somebody absolutely wants to reward a contributor.


                Ok, so...... it should have a database with topics, that respond to search terms. 1 function (like teleport can have many different versions by different people) so when you search teleport, you shouild see al variants. then people should be able to vote on what whey like and thats how the list would be ranked (democratic).

                1 thing can have different media attached, but all displays should have the same layout for clarity, so when you click 1 teleport vatriant by 1 contributor ,it will look a bit like this :

                This is how i think it could be, i am not commanding you to make it like this, lol!

                Use it how you see fit, i am very happy somebody with the proper skills wants to help.

                This way we can get transparancy, efficiency+streamlining sharing and better games for everybody!

                Can you imagin you want a sliding door like in old Japanese times, you go here, and you find and have it on your pc within 5 or 10 minutes.

                That gives me an idea, it should have a request feature with a counter that shows howmany people want it too. words are cheap so not an "i like this idea" button but a "if you make this, i will download and use it in my project" button...

                  I think an answerhub style tagging system, combined with a description space and title would preserve search functionality. The front page would also be layered in categories starting with compatibility.

                    1 topic in the system should have multiple ways of describing the same thing. Some people say "make my bot walk around" while another person searches on "AI movement node" but they are essentially both looking for the same thing...

                      That's where competent search algorithms and well laid out categories come into play.

                        Awesome! Technology jeeeeeeeh!!!

                        if it gets really big , this thing, i am gonna talk to Epic, to make a button inside UE4.6 editor to download a blueprint directly into your project from inside,

                        file, import blueprint, and then you go to this database, and then you can use it in your game instantly!

                          what is wrong about the current method of searching for blueprints (and many other kind of searches),is when you google a thing you often get people asking questions on forums about subjects that matched. not always do they mean the same thing...

                          But i am not looking for questions, but answers.

                          A blueprint database with download and quality ranking will be a huge step foreward. i am only developing for 2 weeks, but i can not believe this does not exist yet.....

                            I can't remember if it's 4.7 or 4.8, but they are adding the ability to import and merge blueprints.

                              wow, if they are already doing that on their end, and we can build this, then linking it will not be so hard....It would simply be an api with download capability..

                              the other thing, look a practical example.

                              i want to snap a block to another block of the same size.

                              so i google "ue4 snap actor to actor" and i get this https://answers.unrealengine.com/que...imensions.html

                              if i search on this forum i get these answers https://answers.unrealengine.com/search.html?q=ue4+snap+actor+to+actor&c=22&type=question+OR+idea&lang=en&sort=relevance"


                              long story short. i should be able to swap blueprints in and out in a matter of seconds to see how it is compatible for what i want and need. We should aim at 1 minute from typing your search to actually having it inside your own PC ue4 project , ready to use.

                              lets say i search "joypad" i see blueprints and an explanation where to put it. does this joypad blueprint go in the level blueprint, does it go somewhere else?

                              it must be noob friendly. i just started to learn , and its super overwhelming when you really want to advance and understand.

                              I should not be forced to rebuild an entire blueprint by hand , because i use it in my project. It should auto compile the contributers name in the games credits, so that is also not manually. Everybody can get the credit they deserve then.

                              If i want to use this exploding barrel, i have to make a screenshot

                              , or pause the video 100 times, to rebuild it by hand, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o1GBBBwnRE

                              . then something doesnt work and you dont know what... BAM 3 hours gone

                              I am #indiedev.



                              But seriously, there must be a better way. People like you, who see a good idea, and say i will make this withing 10 minutes after reading, are so extremely valuable, guys like me have ideas, and they are to big to make. Everybody and their grandma has an idea, but making something is another thing.

                              We need people who take action to build something awesome and advance gamedev in general, the mega studio will benefit from streamlining this process, but also the 1pc indiedev.

                              last thing : i will put all the features people say in this thread in post 1 (or else peoples ideas could get buryd in 100 pages), and then we will see how much can be built....
