I’m in the early stage of creating a 2D multiplayer game, I’m currently learning Unreal Engine 4 and I have a few questions.
In my game, there are no characters; there is one space ship that on player can move, 2 other players can move the guns (of the space ship) and shoot and a last one can repair things/manage energy etc… (WIP). They all have the same camera (maybe not the same GUI).
What’s the best way to proceed ? It will be multiplayer, each player having one of the roles (they will choose between levels).
Do I have to create 4 different pawns ? One pawn with an int (if 1-> pilot, 2-> gunner1 etc…) ? Is the spaceship a pawn, what about the turrets ?
Also the game is going to be online multiplayer (on gamepad and computer) for each player but I also want it to be playable in local (same conputer, one camera, 4 gamepads plugged into the computer). What’s the best way to proceed ?
Thanks for your anwers, if you know tutorials on the subject don’t hesitate to give the kink.
