Player building


I am currently looking at UE to determine whether I can use it for a project I am planning. I’ve done most of the tutorials so far but I can’t see any regarding allowing the player to build. I’m thinking along the lines of The Sims or RTS games like Warcraft, age of empires etc.

I’m sure these types of games are possible with UE, but I’ve no idea where to begin. Has anyone come across any tutorials that would help ease me into this? I’m very new to games dev at this stage.


Try this set to start with:

I actually just got the basic placement for my building system done. It has an optional “grid” system, rotation, etc.
It’s totally possible in UE4. I did mine in C++, but you could do it easily in Blueprints.
