I am a PhD student, and I am planning to do a research based on social simulation of Agent Based Modeling (ABMS) and model verification by gaming simulation.
My research methodology is centralized around scientific modelling, but I intend to do verification side of the model by implementing a BP based game play via UE4.
So there are some questions coming to my mind, but I can not answer them myself. I made a search by keywords including “research”, “agent based model”, “agent based”…
But results are too irrelevant. So I wish you guys to help me with the questions. Thanks in advance for any kind help of yours.
By the way I am sorry if I put the topic in the wrong place. I could not find any specific area, so I understand that it might be replaced…
- Is it possible? As far as I learned from 3 months experience of engine, I can understand that social simulation and gaming simulation both have similar grounds and specifications. But it might be my misunderstanding that it is feasible at all…
2 Was there any tool or plugin that helps to do ABMS or similar social simulation out there?
Was there any BP based tutorial or a piece of written instructions to achieve such an objective inside engine?
Am I allowed to do such a thing? I will implement a game that people come and play knowing that they are part of a research and their anonymous data would be used for scientific purposes. But what is the general attitude of Epic Games about this topic?
Can I use free market place assets? I know that those assets are there for the reason being they are donated for community. But I want to make sure that it extends to my use case.
