Hee hee! You’re welcome!

I look forward to any pics you choose to share of the pics you generate using my new node!

Hey !

I never posted in thread before, even though I have used your plugin quite a lot! (shame on me…) So let me first take a minute to thank you for the awesome work you have ! not only some of these nodes are useful (or even essential!) but the plugin as a whole serves as a great base plugin and C++ example.

In fact, you inspired me to make a plugin that I was planing to release with the custom nodes I have been using in my projects over the last year but apparently I’m way too lazy to finish it

I call it the “Math Plugin” :p, it includes various nodes starting from simple (missing) nodes like negate int/float, to more advanced intersection checks (to be used as collision check alternatives etc.)

Let me know if you find any of these interesting… It would be kinda cool to have some of these added to your plugin if you think they are useful

Hi there !

Rest of community is invited to chime in as to which of your nodes they would like, I personally think that the Is Point in Box, that receives the extent and center of box, would be great! (FBox not exposed to BP yet as far as I know)

Line to Line Intersection

Line Inside Sphere (is an intersection or whole line has to be inside sphere?)

Closest Points between Two Line Segements

Project Point onto Line

Closest Point on Sphere to Line

Closest Point on Line Segment

Set Vector Length

Increment Float

Increment Integer

IsEven

IsPowerOf2

IsMultipleOf

RoundToNearestMultiple

GridSnap

Would be great!

I think a lot of people will love the Geometry functions and Grid Snap !

And the various math functions will be very helpful !

Thanks!

Been stalking the forums since day 1, but I must say now , these would be IMMENSELY helpful. Like, helpful enough to get the ball rolling for something nice.

Also , you’re a saint.

If you build it, they will come.

Round to nearest multiple would be nice. I round down to the blocks location, so if you click 187, it rounds to 100. In my game, I spawn a grid of blocks, and they are 100 wide each. You can click on em and it removes them. I have to do: block location = blockWidth / 100 -> floor * 100

Hee hee!

```
Nice to hear from you Jamendxman3!

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]**Welcome to the forums Fayle!**

One of my absolute favorite sayings / movies!

Alright then I’m just going to drop the header and cpp files here, then it’s up to (and the community) to decide which nodes are added

I also added a bonus function to convert velocity to another speed unit, can be used for car speedometers etc.

Hey,!You really did a wonderful job!

How can i make a plugin?

I wrote a function library and i want to make it a plugin.Can you help me?

Yes , that is also a question I had. If I make a bunch of macros for math nodes, could I turn those into a plugin? Do I need C++ knowledge?

Also, maybe you could make a tutorial on how to do ? Maybe just something simple like how to make a node in c++ that adds A & B. Hope you consider it, thanks!

I wrote up a plugin that is a template for BP libraries a while ago! Here’s the wiki link!

You can download that and use that to get started!

Yes you do need to use C++ See my Link!

30+ New Math, Physics, and 3D Geometry Nodes!

*Live as of May 1st, 2015*

Dear Community,

I have the May Celebration node release for you today!

Community member has gifted us with **over 30 new BP nodes for Math, Physics, and 3D Geometry calculations!**

I highlighted my personal favorite nodes in green!

```
**UMG Anchor Conversion**
Please note you can now convert UMG Anchor coordinates to other coordinate spaces!
```

**Snap To 3D Grid**

You can use the Snap Node to snap any 3D space Vector to a grid size of your choosing!

So you could use node to to regulate the position of an in-game 3D positioning tool (like for RTS Games!) to a grid of your choosing, while still accounting for rolling hills of landscapes and big vertical differences!

```
**Convert Physics Linear Velocity**
Ever wonder how fast in **Km/hr** an in-game Unreal Engine physics ball was hurling through the air?
Ever want to know the **meters/second** speed of a falling physics-simulating box?
Or how about the **miles/hour** of your UE4 Physics Vehicle?
Well thanks to 's new node you can now easily convert the value that you get from GetPhysicsLinearVelocity of any physics-simulating body to a speed in the units of your choosing!
Here's is 's current list of available conversions!
```
/* Speed Units Enum. */
UENUM()
enum ESpeedUnit
{
/* Centimeter / second (cm/s). is default unreal velocity unit. */
CentimeterPerSecond,
/* Foot / second (ft/s). */
FootPerSecond,
/* Meter / second (m/s). */
MeterPerSecond,
/* Meter / minute (m/min). */
MeterPerMinute,
/* Kilometer / second (km/s). */
KilometerPerSecond,
/* Kilometer / minute (km/min). */
KilometerPerMinute,
/*Kilometer / hour (km/h). */
KilometerPerHour,
/* Mile / hour (mph). */
MilePerHour,
/* Knot (kn). Nautical mile per hour. */
Knot,
/* Mach (speed of sound) (M) at standard atm. */
Mach,
/* Speed of light. */
SpeedOfLight,
/* Yard / second. */
YardPerSecond
};
```
```

**BP Nodes for 3D Geometric Analysis!**

Here are pics showing the complete list of the new 3D Geometry Nodes!

To see the full list, get the latest version of my plugin and type in “TK” and you will see the 30+ new nodes available to you!

```
**Thank You!**
**Thank you for your contribution!**
These nodes are going to be extremely useful for a lot of people !
```

Veneration for holy !

Thanks bunches you two!

, I tried using the VictoryAI plugin template, I placed it in my UE4 Project’s plugins folder, and it tells me that it can’t compile, and that I need to compile from source manually. I have the launcher version of the engine, not GitHub. What am I doing wrong? And how do I recompile plugin once I’ve made my stuff?

Hee hee! You’re welcome!

I’ve thoroughly both of your (very first two!) posts Fayle, great to hear form you!

Compiling Plugins

Hi there!

Yes you definitely need to compile my template yourself, because you also cannot add code to it unless you compile it yourself!

You need Visual Studio Express 2013 for Desktop.

Make sure to get the “Community” edition or the one that says “For Windows Desktop”

Install that, and then you can use VS to compile.

The only alternative to a C++ plugin would be to make a BP Library asset that you share with people.

Enjoy!

**30+ New Nodes!**

PS: I recently released 30+ new nodes for Math, 3D Geometric Analysis, and Physics!

Hello , I am working on a temperature system, it basically is for games where you want the user to see the temperature where player is at, or anywhere for that matter. You will be able to add heat sources, cold sources, and the temperature will radiate in the game. It will be fully customize-able with room temperature, temperature source influence, temperature flicker, and lots more when I’m . It is really just a back-end thing that nobody sees, but if people want, they could have the player take damage if where they are is too hot, and other things. If works out, I will also make a moisture system as well. I will be making a node to initialize temperatures, node to add temperature source, remove temp source, and of that. Is something that you’d like in the Victory Plugin? If so, how would I get that stuff to you if I made it using your plugin template?

I reinstalled my Visual Studio 2013, with the VS 2013 Ultimate for desktop, but how do I compile VictoryAI manually?

Hi there!

So step 1 is to turn your project into a project that has source code: (**or see my note below!**)

- Create a new empty actor class in the editor via File->add code to project
- Now you can close the editor and navigate to the folder containing your .uproject.
- make sure you are storing my plugin template inside a folder called “Plugins” that is in same directory as your .uproject
- if you dont see a .sln file you can right click on your .uproject and select Generate VS Files
- open the .sln that is created and build your project! (“build” from top menu bar)

Because your project is now setup to have source code, the Unreal Build Tool (UBT) will detect the plugin template and compile it along with the source code for your project.

Now you can proceed with modifying my plugin template, and then just keep recompiling your main project .sln file!

**Please note, you can use any project to do process,** so you could even create a new C++ project that is really just to compile the plugin, and then use the plugin with your BP-only project.
