I always watched videos about how to do stuff like “how to make ego shooter” or “how to make an inventory” or “how to pick up items and store them”
stuff like that. And I have also watched some basic videos of UE4 company how to set things up in your level.
But I often have lots of questions that are not answered in the videos like how do variables, structures etc. work. I mean now I think I know, but I use to have lots of questions. Especially when I see videos where they use a lot of nodes and blue prints, which are interacting. And these bp’s are full of variables, at the end of the day I dont know what does what anymore, I completely lose track. I cannot understand why he makes another variable, where this variable gets its information, why he has to make more references etc etc. Why do a blueprints (widget) needs to be created but all others not. Why do I have to use a clear variables node in widgets sometimes. The tutors say otherwise it will be create over and over, but why?. It was just a big mess for me. With lots of thinking I figured some stuff out. But it took me hours. And I think I could have learned much faster if there was just someone who would have explained me why the things are they are.
Just today someone told me to first learn the basics before I watch his videos (I asked a lot of questions).
So then I asked myself where do I learn the basics.
Watching “how to’s” just leave a lot of unanswered questions in my mind. I feel I understand what they try to do, but I dont understand the mechanics of the engine.
How did u learn blueprint scripting?
