    Looking forward to it! Will there be more cats?

    I do have a question, though not about 4.10 specifically: Now that you've embedded support for Steam VR, might you be planning to expand upon the Steam OnlineSubsystem soon? If so, will you be expanding blueprints support?

        I know the focus is on 4.10, but I'd be super interested in any information on some of the stuff floating around in the engine that seems tantalizingly half implemented -- gameplay tags (which seems to be related to AI), tasks, and most of all, Niagara.

              Great to see another stream with Mike!

              I'd like to throw these questions in too, please.

              [question] How is the BP to C++ conversion tool / option going?

              And would a conversion tool that could go back & forth from BP to C++ code be possible?

              [question] On BP communication could you explain exactly what a 'Cast' is or does? Always figured it was just a pointer that creates a reference to another BP object (class) but would like your explanation of what it is.
              (first question that I get asked when someone starts BPs & first problem someone new has)

              and wouldn't there be a more eloquent or a quicker, easier way to do this? we can create variables from any class type in a game, wouldn't just creating a variable work or should work? and why was the 'Cast' system in BPs chosen? (wasn't in 4.4 or other version, that you could just declare a variable public or global and just use it, whatever happened to that anyway)

              [question] Will we be staying on 4.10 until most of the bugs and any stability issues are taken care of ?


              Note: also add +100 to that question on how Niagara is coming along!
