Where are the Axis event nodes in my Blank Project Blueprint?

Hey ryanjon,

The reason the blank template does not have axis mappings listed as nodes is that you have no axis mappings defined for that project. The FPS template has those axis mappings predefined for you, so they are accessible immediately in your Blueprints.

To set up your axis mappings in a blank project, go to Edit > Project Settings. Under Engine > Input, you should see Axis Mappings in the Bindings section. Create the axis mappings you want, click Set as Default, and then reopen your Character Blueprint. The axis mapping nodes will be available now!

Hope that helps!

If you create a new project based on Blank Project and create a new Blueprint from Character, you will notice there are no axis events or inputaxis nodes.

Thanks a lot Ben! That did the trick.
