I’m trying my best to not fight with Blueprints until I’ll enjoy it!
Unfortunately, I’m only familiar with an old visual scripting such as ClickTeam’s Fusion and Scirra’s Construct 2: both based on nested events that are extremely easy to follow, so the Blueprints are still new to me as it’s based on nodes and lots of terms in the nodes that I have no idea how to begin with when I want to do something specific.
I did follow some video tutorials on YouTube more than once (official and none official) and started to get the idea and fall in love with the blueprints idea but… when I wanted to do start something from scratch by myself, I got lost immediately because of confusion and no experiment in the are.
That’s why I really need your help in this, and I have a good feeling that it may help others like me in the future.
WHAT I’M TRYING TO DO:
I believe that the most basic satisfaction for me to learn and understand will be to Control a CUBE object and move it with the keyboard buttons, make it jump, or maybe even later… shoot?
But before I get into the blueprints I already got lost on the creating game mode, because on my new scene (with the floor and start player) there are already modes and Player Start and other stuff that I don’t need… and not sure if I’ll just delete them from the scene it will also get rid of some modes that hiding in some other menus. as you can see… I’m already confused.
All I want is to start from scratch, build the simple Cube moving on a plane from the ground and start to add more to it it will be a GREAT WAY to learn how to play with blueprints and I’m very excited about it!
I’ve upgraded to the 4.11 Preview 6 so the video tutorials on YouTube are showing older versions with some menu differences and I go lost easily, even when it comes to create a Game Mode.
The Input part is very clear and easy to follow, I really like how it let me add any extra keyboard button I want to use.
The easiest for me to follow and learn will probably be more visual step-by-step via a video tutorial because of my bad English.
I’m learning a lot by watching that’s for sure.
If any of you have the time or patience to make a short video tutorial that show how to do the simple friendly Cube object moving as I describe… it will be very helpful and encouraging.
I don’t want to give up on blueprints… it looks so much powerful and friendly once I’ll get into it (hopefully I’m not wrong and it’s not getting SCARY).
Thanks ahead, and sorry about my bad English.
