    [RELEASED] Objective Waypoint System

    Objective Waypoint System that finds the shortest path to the Objective Actor.

    Objective Waypoint System offers you two different modes.

    Spawn Mode:
    Spawn Mode lets you spawn Waypoint Actors from Character location to Objective Actor. You can define how many meshes to spawn and the distance between each mesh.

    Spline Mode:
    Spline Mode lets you draw a Spline from Character location to Objective Actor.

    Both Modes support constant update at given intervals as you move the character and the Waypoint System will always try to find the shortest path from Character to Objective Actor. You can also set the Waypoint System to specific Navigation Query Classes.

    Blueprints:
    *Waypoint Actor Component
    *Custom Enum to select between 2 Waypoint modes
    *Ability to find waypoint to world location from minimap
    *Objective Actor
    *Waypoint Actor

    Level:
    *Example Maze Level

    Textures:
    *Tileable Mask Texture

    Changelog v1.2
    * Added shortcut key for toggling Minimap (Default: E)
    * Added a text on HUD that shows how to activate the existing waypoint

    Changelog v1.3
    Updated to 4.15
    *Added multiplayer support out of the box
    *Objective Actor will now be set dynamically (if not assigned) in-game (See FindPathToActor in ThirdPersonCharacter Blueprint)
    *Renamed private functions with Internal_* prefix
    *Fixed incorrect rotation of some waypoints at corners
    *Fixed minimap path finding not working properly
    *Fixed incorrect objective marker position in non-native screen resolutions

        Yes, and follow the "road/path" on the minimap

                Would this work in VR?

                  Finding goal actors in the waypoint system should work in VR.

                        Hi, we like the look of this. we are trying to implement an information system for architectural use, for instance, lets say i have several blocks, each one representing a shop unit. I want to know the closest entrance, the closest lift, the closest escalator, the closest car park to that block.. I think this system will work for my needs correct? I just need to display the distance and possible 3/4 different coloured arrows to each of the possible variables. once i click on another block i get updated info / arrows... Therie is no pawn / character running about, it'll all be mouse hoovering over a mesh (not an actor if possible as i have hundreds!)

                          Objective Waypoint System always finds the shortest path possible. You can modify this system to support multiple waypoints (with different colors as you said).

                          If I understand you correctly then I think you have several blocks (for example 10) with lots of entrances, lifts, escalators etc and you need to find the closest of everything for each block. If that's the case then you can add the WaypointComponent to your Block actor and each block can iterate through your required things (entrance, lift, escalator etc.) to find the closest path.

                            Thanks Yeti, doesn't the way-point component require being attached to a character?

                              Objective Waypoint System is a Component so you have to add it to an Actor based class. Since its a non-scene component you cannot attach to other scene components (like StaticMeshComponent, SkeletalMeshComponent etc.)
