I’m fairly new to unreal and I have got quite a nice looking terrain but when I start my game, instead of my character being played im just flying around. My third person character is there and so is the player start but it still makes me fly when I run my game…
Do you mean you’re not your 3RD Person Character and instead just the camera? If so you haven’t set your Game Mode correctly.
Edit -> Project Settings -> Maps and Modes
