I’m currently studying for a bachelors degree in computer science with a focus on video game programming. Basically the only thing missing is the final bachelors project. And I’m currently thinking about creating an Ark Mod for the final project.
But as I just started yesterday to look into the Ark Dev Kit, I’m not sure how much is possible. I did 2 years ago a Team Project in the UDK3 where we developed a pvp tower defense game, which we completely wrote in UnrealScript. So its not the first time I touch the unreal engine. But I don’t know much about this blue print system etc.
So maybe you guys could start me off with some quick informations:
- Would it be possible with the freedom of the devkit for example to teleport each x minutes 2 players into an area, for a fight to the death?
- Would it be possible to have instances for this areas? (So for example, that 32 players could fight 1v1 in the same arena with their own instances of it)
- Can I use UnrealScript for replacing game mechanics or do I have to work with this Visual Scripting stuff?
Thanks for any information in advance and sorry that I didn’t spent more time researching yet, before asking. But it would be cool to have a few hints which I should focus on first to learn.
