    Getting Started:


    Cuboid:

    Can be used to create both rectangular/square as well as cuboid grids.
    • Grid Count X/Y/Z - Number of Grid Points along local X/Y/Z axis [Z=1 gives a planar grid on local XY plane]
    • Grid Size X/Y/Z - Dimensions of an individual Grid Cell along local X/Y/Z axis [Does not scale visualization meshes; Check common parameters section for scale control]

    Circle:

    Can be used to create full/partial circular grids.
    • Grid Count - Number of equally spaced Grid Points along the Circular Arc
    • Radius - Radius of the Circular Arc
    • Central Angle - Angle subtended by the Circular Arc at the Center [360 = Full Cirle; <360 = Partial Circle]

    Sphere:

    Can be used to create Grid Points along the Longitude-Latitude lines of a Sphere.
    • Longitude Grid Count - Number of Grid Points along Longitude lines
    • Latitude Grid Count - Number of Grid Points along Latitude lines
    • Radius - Radius of the Sphere
    • Longitude Angle - Angle traced by Longitude lines along a Spherical surface
    • Starting Latitude Angle - Angle of the Northernmost Latitude plane
    • Ending Latitude Angle - Angle of the Southernmost Latitude plane

    Hollow Square:

    Can be used to create Grid Points in a Hollow Square formation.
    • Outer Square Grid Count - Number of Grid Points on each side of the Outer Square
    • Rank Count - Number of Square Patterns starting from the Outermost Square
    • Grid Size - Dimensions of the side of an individual (square-shaped) Grid Cell [Does not scale visualization meshes; Check common parameters section for scale control]

    Flying Wedge:

    Can be used to create Grid Points in a Flying Wedge formation.
    • Number of Rows - Number of rows of grids from Apex to Base of the Triangle
    • Grid Count Increments - Additional Grid Points per row from Apex to Base of the Triangle
    • Grid Size X/Y - Dimensions of an individual Grid Cell along local X/Y axis [Does not scale visualization meshes; Check common parameters section for scale control]

    The following parameters are common to all types of grid creation classes and are used to visualize the Grid Points using Instanced Static Meshes:
    • Visualize Grid Points? - Set to True if you want to visualize the Grid Points
    • Visualization Mesh - Static Mesh used by the Instanced Static Mesh component
    • Visualization Mesh Scale - Scale of the mesh used for visualization

    Grid Creation Systems

    Hi everyone, I just released a new product on the Unreal Engine Marketplace. Grid Creation Systems is a collection of blueprints that allow you to quickly set up grid systems for your games.


    You can choose from a varied list of grid configurations including the basic cuboid and circular grids, the more advanced longitude-latitude based spherical grids, or even offbeat patterns like the hollow square and flying wedge. Simply drag & drop the grid configuration of your choice into the level & start customizing right away!


    Right now it supports the creation of following grid configurations:
    • Rectangular/Square Configuration
    • Cuboid Configuration
    • Circular Configuration
    • Spherical Configuration (using longitude/latitude points)
    • Square Pyramid Configuration
    • Hollow Square Configuration
    • Flying Wedge Configuration

    And I plan to add a few more configurations over the coming weeks. Will post videos of them soon. You can get all the latest updates either through this forum thread or the Grid Creation System youtube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...sU9X3z9QnZq3wK


    Also here are some screenshots of the various grid types:
