  • Blueprint Structure (Structs) | Unreal Engine

    Blueprint Structure (Structs) | Unreal Engine

    What is a Structure in Unreal Engine? A Blueprint Structure or Struct is essentially used in Unreal Engine to store a lot of different variables together. They are similar to Enums in the way that you store a list, but, in this case, the list is made up of variable values. That’s why in Structures,…

    Enumeration (Enum) Blueprint | Unreal Engine

    What is an Enumerator? In Unreal Engine, the Enumeration, also known as Enum, is used to create lists. These lists can store words for anything, such as characters, locations, enemies, weapons, combat phases, or whatever you can imagine within a video game. Enums are easy to use and incredibly useful for keeping things organized and…

  • Line Trace by Channel | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    Line Trace by Channel | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    Tracing or raycasting in Unreal Engine is one of those complex blueprint topics that can initially be overwhelming. However, once you understand how it works, it will significantly enhance your game development possibilities. I will start by explaining how a Line Trace by Channel works, as it is the most common way to trace in…

    Blueprint Interfaces | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    What is a Blueprint Interface? In Unreal Engine, Blueprint Interfaces are used to make different Blueprints in your game understand and follow the same set of rules or instructions. For example, interfaces are particularly useful for setting up objects as interactable or not. It’s like putting a label on them: if they have the label,…

    Event Dispatchers | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    What is an Event Dispatcher? In Unreal Engine, Event Dispatchers are used for communicating Blueprints with each other. Imagine it as a way to fire off the code linked to an Event in one Blueprint, but the event gets triggered from another Blueprint. It’s like making a phone call: the first blueprint starts calling, and…

    Arrays for Beginners | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    What is an Array? An array in Unreal Engine is essentially an ordered list of stored data. Think of it as a list of variables, each variable is a box (array element) that holds a value, such as a number or a piece of data. These boxes are placed next to each other, one after…

  • Custom Event | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    Custom Event | Unreal Engine Blueprints

    A Custom Event is an Event in Unreal Engine created by yourself. This means it is a valuable Blueprint node used to execute sequences of node actions and functions in Blueprints. Think of an Event BeginPlay, but instead of calling the event at the beginning of the game, you can call it wherever and whenever…
