Hi, sorry to see ya’ll go or even wanting to, looks like you are very frustrated with UE at the moment. So not much anyone can say or do that would help for now, but to let you know that we have all felt this way at one time or another, even without talking about Unreal Engine, game creation is frustrating.
Been stuck before, and will again I’m sure, but instead of throwing my computer out the window, I just walk away for a while. Especially before I post on the forums! lol
Here are some books I liked, although I don’t think they cover physics. -> https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?10221-BOOK-Blueprints-Master-the-Art-of-Unreal-Engine-4-Blueprints Kitatus Studios does a great job of writing and presenting BluePrints
But unless you’ve been doing BluePrints for a while, not sure physics is the best place to start at, even if you have half your game done. (experiment with but don’t try to get a complete finished product unless you are at the end of development) That’s like jumping into a shark cage in the middle of the ocean without shutting the door.
(Note: their might be some community projects if you search hard enough or ask in the forums that might help you with BP Physics. that might help or give you a start in the right direction)
Plus whenever you do get hung up on one thing in developing, you get so focused it’s hard to see even the simplest solutions even if they’ve been right there in front of you the whole time. So you should step back, do something else, refresh your mind on the subject and come back to it later.
I also fuss at Epic about documentation, as they well know.
But since I’ve started with UE they have really worked on their docs & have listened, so I’ll be the first to take up for them.
They do have a lot of changes going on with new releases & it’s hard to keep up with, for anyone. Again would like to see a good stable release & docs updated and clarified, myself.
But that won’t really help you now, just stay tuned in & keep up with Unreal Engine, hopefully if they keep listening, we’ll all really have something here.
Anyway, this is just general advice no matter what you wind up doing, so good luck out there!
