I am trying to create a subway-type simulator in the Unreal Engine but I have a few questions on basic movements and animations. I’ve had experience in developing for other simulators such as the German Bus simulator OMSI 2 so I have experience with modeling and animation.
So I have a subway “set” (a set is made up of 3 subway cars linked together, and each subway car has two axle trucks), I would like to have this subway set follow a pre-laid track, so it’s basically one subway car model in a 3 car set, linked together by a coupler.
In the subway car, there are doors that I would like to be able to control using the Numpad 4 or 6 buttons to open and close the left or right doors. Do the doors have to be separate from the subway car model its self? I want the doors to open and close like in this video:https://youtube.com/watch?v=qbcLK5qMSHw
I would also like to be able to move the subway car by using the up and down arrow keys, like how you drive a car in unreal, but I want this “vehicle” to follow the tracks I already set.
Would anybody know how to help with this? Thanks.
