Here’s a little introduction movie to show of some of the features!

First time setup

  1. Open up MainMenuMap level and build the level
  2. Open up Arena level and build the level
  3. Open up Town level and build the level
  4. Now open up MainMenuMap level again and play

note: It is important to first build the levels for navigation to work, also it is important to first play the game starting from the MainMenuMap level, so you can create your first character. Playing from other maps won’t work until you created your first character!


You can find documentation in PDF format by going to Content/ActionRPGToolkit/Documentation inside your windows explorer. (The pdf’s won’t show up inside unreal engine, because it doesn’t support PDF’s)

  • Setup Documentation.pdf -> This shows some of the most common things you can add or edit for game design/balance
  • Gameplay Documentation.pdf -> This shows you the controls for the game and explains more about how the game works and some design intentions.

Known Issues

I’m ready to throw my money at you!
Looks very promising!

In the process of adding a Sorcerer class to the toolkit! Here’s a preview of the first 3 skills I implemented:

Really impressive work.

I’m completely jealous as I was somehow wanted to work on such a plugin for a long time now. But that’s how things go I believe.

I wish you the best for this Plugin :slight_smile:

EDIT: To sum up the thoughts I had regarding the price, I think it depends on how modular the kit is and how much built-in content there is / documentation and support.

Date release???

you say feb? we are in April! i want to buy it!

Hi Smiljan,

Unfortunately the pack was rejected by epic because of naming conventions that don’t follow their rules etc… I have quite some work updating all that, I’m doing my best to get it on their as quickly as possible.

Thanks for waiting and my apologies for the inconvenience!

Super ! CAN’T WAIT!

Updated the first post with currently implemented features and replaced the movie with a new movie that shows some of the new implemented features.

Good Lord i love it! 2 super important things are , been able to roll like hitting space bar, that way wont be bouring as hell the combat , second have you play divinity ? they have like a transparent thing for buildings when the are tall or occluded by camera.

Also will be very nice to have a slot in inventory for arms armor , boots and another ring because you have 2 arms. Or can be a slot for glooves instead of arms and add boots and another ring

Also i hope you can rotate the camera wiht the middle mouse button to have more field distance in view co people can choose what angle of camera they want.

You can you can implement this things? doing that will be super complete system and i love it so far this will be perfect for my game.

This pack will be glorious because most important deep documentation.

Best Regards .

One thing i noted is the things that drop in ground after killing should not be displayed automaticly , that to me is kind of anoying , give the posibility tho show those items hitting ALT or if you pass the cursor over.

You can disable item labels by pressing ctrl.
You can hit Shift to stop movement and use a skill, so you don’t have to click on an enemy. These things are a bit hidden in the movie.

I’m also working on hiding the health plates above monsters heads by pressing V, but that’s for a future update.

Rotating camera and zooming is now added to the to-do list :slight_smile: And adding slots for gloves, boots, ring and offhand is on the to-do list for the further future. I originally started this project trying to keep things simple, but it will be expanded over time.

Awesome ! and what about the transparency on objects that are occluded by camera , becuase thats is very important .


I was thinking about doing it the way Torchlight 2 handles it. Having the character render out behind a wall. So you see your character even when it is behind an object. But that’s still on the to-do list

Edit: Rotating camera with Middle-mouse button is done, zooming camera with scrolling mouse wheel is also done.

Now moving forward with pressing and holding alt to temporarily invert item label visibility. While pressing Ctrl still enables always display or always hide item labels

Awesome! , will be interesting how it works the visibility like torchlight :slight_smile:

The only problem with that is for interiors if lets say i can see the roof of a house and torchlight kind of visibility is like a xray effect and that wont be cool. Just saying .

Topdown games like these usually don’t design their levels to have roofs, designing your levels so that they don’t have roofs is easier than setting up transparent buildings. The way that would work is by having tracing channels, which means that every object in the game world that might possibly cull your character will have to be set up with custom collision channel.

The torchlight way of doing things it automatically detects occlusion culling and you don’t have to setup anything when designing your levels.

The torchlight way of doing things is already implemented btw :slight_smile: haha I’m quick

Also showing/hiding item labels with Alt is implemented. All those requested features I made are for a future update with version 1.1 though. As I have already submitted version 1.0 to Epic. Fingers crossed that it will be accepted this time!

Rejected again because of total stupid reasons. I’m working on a solution to get this out there without the unreal marketplace!

God dam ! again?? i want to buy now! :slight_smile: , about hiding divinity enhanced edition uses roofs and that’s super cool , i know there must be a way , i will like to dicuss that matter with you personally when i got your pack and i begin testing .

veyr bets luck on submitting come on Epic help Us.
