Whats up Unreal community, while I have been still working on PROXY, I wanted to see what other kind of mechanics I could come up with and improve on for a third person shooter. So in this process I went ahead and put together a number of videos on building a new third person shooter prototype that is multiplayer compatible, most likely this will be broken up in a series and the first part of getting the character up and running is pretty much done. I don’t think I will be delving into creating a character from scratch but focus more on getting character mechanics working in conjunction with but there may be a little bit of brushing over custom character work but it might end up being brief due to the amount of resources that already exist on the web that go over how to do this process.
Hope you guys will find this useful and if you have any suggestions or ideas feel free to message or post a reply and if its possible I can see about how to build that into the character.
