    2019 Features Roadmap

    This year I plan to extend Third Person Shooter Kit. I have big ambtion plan, but I don't know how much of this I will achieve.
    My goal is to make it AAA quality with ready to use advanced systems that you see in current games, like Tomb Raider, Division, Batman or Metal Gear Solid.

    These are things I would like to work on and know how to do it. That list is in random order, so some feature/new assets can be sooner then later. Although I'm happy to hear your feedback about list priority!


    Third Person Shooter Kit - additional features:
    1. - New stelth kill animations
    2. - New camera system - each camera state can be setup in one assets data instead of in player character BP
    3. - AI strangle and aiming feature
    4. - New roll animation
    5. - New climbing ladder animations
    6. - Different player death anim - now it's just animation, I want to change to ragdoll and grey post process
    7. - Checkpoint system where AI and objects actually respawns
    8. - AI spawner system
    9. - New example player/AI meshes and demo level - taken from Epic examples which are free
    10. - Stealth mechanics - AI can found body and AI and go to standby state
    11. - Contextual jumping and climbing - run and jump from rail to hang and climb up
    12. - Rail hanging and shimmy movememnt with stamina bar - similar like in MGS 2
    13. - Animation quality pass - better animations for cover system, melee attacks and locomotion starts/stops
    14. - Audio quality pass - music and SFX replacement
    15. - Weapon system refactor - weapons as seperate blueprints so new weapons can be added easly
    16. - Weapon slots - main weapon 1 and 2 plus side arm, proper equping with animation, now it just appears
    17. - Contextual climbing - like in Division, without jumping which exists now
    18. - New AI archetypes using free Paragon assets (models, FX and anims)
    19. - Interactive objects - animations, logic and model - pulling lever etc.
    20. - Cover system - curved covers including 90 degrees change covers, simple cover to cover mechanic (side to side only)
    21. - Stealth mechanics - HUD - info on player's HUD about AI state - alarmed, patroling, searching
    22. - Generic item pick up like ammo - similar like in latest Tomb Raider
    23. - Item boxes opened with genreic animation, like kicking or squat and pick up
    24. - AI - running into cover and shooting at the same time

            Hi hamsterPL, nice kit.

            Can covering be done anywhere like skeletal meshes or is it only bound to an actor for static meshes?

            I would also like to see kill sequences as DOOM from the tps perspective. Are such feautre planned as update?

                1 You can have cover anywhere you want. It's a blueprint actor which you place on the level and you can adjust it size and so on as you like.

                2 You mean somthing like finishers? I have only stealth kill for now. I don't have any finishers animations for now, so I'm not planning that feature.

                Unfortunately I didn't set it up for multiplayer, but I think it can be done with no big effort. Look at this tutorial series from Epic - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abmzWUWxy1U

                            I've just submitted files to Epic, so I'm guessing it will be out in a month.
