    I hope I will manage to submit tomorrow. Everything compiles for UE4.20-UE4.22. I started to fill in the submission form.
    Let me know what you think of my marketplace page content



    Description


    MSSR is a plugin that allows for automatic snapping of actors to each other in game. Works with any mesh or actor, connection points are simply defined using standard UE4 sockets.


    Watch videos (TBD)

    Download demo (TBD)


    Useful for:
    • In-game building systems like player built houses, furniture, roads, rail-tracks, racetracks, bases, spaceships, fortifications, etc;
    • Puzzle games that require placing or connecting objects in certain way;
    • In game placement and moving of actors in general, like "put book on the shelf", "put the key into keyhole";
    • and more...
    Technical Information


    Features:
    • Based on the concept of snap points defined using standard Unreal's sockets
    • Works with static meshes, skeletal meshes or any other type of actor supporting sockets, also works with splines. Supports snapping of multiple actors
    • Highly customizable, settings can be adjusted for each snap point
    • Integrates with game's object placement, movement and selection systems (i.e. how objects are selected, moved by the player in game); example implementation is provided
    • Can be used in first person, third person, top view, VR
    • Easy to use, contains automatic preview actor and helper nodes for smooth snap

    Also made a logo:

      Here are some ideas for the screenshots I pulled from the demo. Feel free to use them if you want.

        Thank you Wolfgang! I think I will do something like that.

        I will make the example level with the usual content examples rooms and use that for screenshots.
        It looks better than the default material and also there will be already the text in the level.
        It usually takes them some time to start reviewing, so I can submit now an make the exmaples/screenshots during this time.

              I'm standing ready with my wallet, but for what version will it be? I'm trying to update my project from 4.20 to 4.22 and Unreal crashes right and left, I am about to end my update history with 4.20 it seems, when Unreal has become so buggy that it can't even load a project anymore, so unless your plugin will compile with 4.20 I can't use it

                Thank you! I submitted 4.20-4.22, actually that's the rule of the marketplace, last 3 versions. I think I can add 18 and 19 too if somebody need it.

                  Hej Scha. When Your plugin "work in game" will be available in Unreal marketplace? Currently I stopped my project because I'm waiting for it so much...

                    Tutorial progress: first 2 rooms done! Download here: https://inugames.itch.io/mssr-demos

                    Are those examples with cubes okay or I need to make something more realistic, like houses with doors and stuff like that?
                    Won't people think "Meh It's just cubes"?

                      I personally think the cubes get the point across. Plus you have the pipes later on that show different shapes so I think it's good. You could add some house parts to be extra redundant just in case but I don't think it needs it. I really like the tutorial so far.

                      I keep checking the marketplace at least twice a day waiting for it to show up so I can buy it already haha.

                        Another room done. It explains how to prepare your actors for using with the plugin.
                        Demo updated https://inugames.itch.io/mssr-demos
                        Once it's done I will upload project files too

                            I hope they will review it soon ...
                            In the meantime: new logo. I think it's much more clear what the plugin does

                                Still waiting for review...

                                In the meantime, some multiplayer testing:


                                It works good if physics are not enabled. Replicating physics seems tricky, I couldn't make "weld simulated bodies" replicate. I don't know mp and replication very well, so maybe there is a way to make that work too. Anybody knows?

                                Btw, it's not the part of the plugin, I just made a setup where the snap is executed on the server and the preview on the client only.
