  • Announcing Section 6 of Survival Game - Adding some polish

    Hi everyone!

    In the sixth and for now final section of the series we'll apply a coat of polish to the game.
    This includes things like additional sound effects for the zombie, improvements to the AI behavior and fixing the bugs reported by the community!
    I'll be working on improving the layout of some of the classes so you can more easily set up your own game rules or go completely open world.

    UPDATE: Section 6 docs now available!

    Visit Project Page to get started!

    Hey Tom.

    Thanks for amazing Tutorial Series.

    Just a one issue that i've been facing for days and could't figure it out yet;

    When you run on "Dedicated Server", fire animations does not replicated to the clients. Whereas "On Equip" does. Any suggestions?

    I noticed this too, still have to find some time to debug why this is happening. The intend is that they move around at night and are idle during the day.

    Yes you can play it co-op. There is a simple main menu available to host and join a friend.

    I tried the SetViewTargetWithBlend, but can't get it working correctly.

    Found this solution while ago in this topic: https://forums.unrealengine.com/show...oblem&p=290258
    But im facing the same issue as in the moview, that im loosing control of pitch when targeting.

    The creator of the topic replied to me in PM with his solution. He is using the WorldRotation of the camera, but i havent figured out how to get the used camera (yet)
    Would prefer to change the GetAimOffset method to obtain the correct aim pitch.

    ShooterGame does support 3rd person with "behindview" as a console command. It's not a fully rich implementation, but if you were to compare my 3rd person weapon code with shootergame, you'll see only a small difference (with their having functions like IsFirstPerson() to determine which of the two meshes to display and whether to attach the mesh to the first or third person character etc.

    In shootergame the alignment of the weapon mesh with the crosshair is done by playing an AnimMontage that moves the hands up, you'd have to adjust the first person mesh position to match the weapon ironsight with the center of the camera. So in that scenario the camera does nothing except for zooming the FOV (as is implemented in the survival's PlayerCameraManager already)

    I have been using your code as well as the ShooterGame as learning resource for my own project.
    The target of my project is a true person shooter (while yours is 3the person and the shooter game is first person)

    One of the things im strugling with is the "targetting", so to line up the weapon scope with the eye view.
    So i was wondering what it takes to turn the survival game from a 3the person shooter into a true person shooter. Setting the camera is rather easy, but the targetting part is something i see many questions about on these forums and no real answers.
    I did not put much time in trying to get the targetting working as im mainly using a 3the person camera in my project for testing purposes.

    Can u (or anyone else) make a small tutorial/example for this?
    I know this is addressed to Tom, but I would have a weapon class that has it's own camera, line it up as you wish and simply switch from your player camera to the weapons camera using 'SetViewTargetWithBlend()'. (I've not tried it myself but I expect it would work quite well)

    This last part is a bit more disappointing as there's not real headlight to read and I'm too lazy to check out source code.
    But thank you for this excellent tutorial serie! It will probably help kickstart a lot of projects
