Alright, I’ve been using Blueprints for my projects on Unreal 4 for several years, but now I’ve recently decided to get into really learning some actual code with C++.
I’ve been doing some Youtube tutorials from Reuben Ward, simple things like setting up an inventory that prints a list of objects you can “pick up” and have their names reprinted through a debug message from an array of strings. Very simple, very small things.
When I compile ANYTHING using Visual Studio I get to wait around 5 minutes (I can only imagine what it will be like on a larger project) just to see if I fixed a single error. But wait! that’s not all… the intellisense is utterly non-existent (or so slow its actually faster to go onto Bing and just look up the code I’m looking for).
Now, I’ve heard about something called Visual Assist, some people say its supposed to help with improving compile times and (supposedly) with intellisense, but I thought I’d ask around to see how many other people are having these same issues (if anyone is), and if they’ve found any better solutions.
Also, here’s my specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core™ i5-6400 CPU@ 2.70GHz 2.71GHz
