Adds weapon support for the character, a flashlight, UT-style inventory with on-character visual representation of the carried items and deals with damage, death and respawns for players.

Section 3

Introduces AI "Zombie" enemy to our game using PawnSensing and Behavior Tree.

Section 4

Introduces a gameloop with enemies, items, scoring and a time of day.

Section 5

Introduces the ability to carry around objects like barriers and discusses game networking.

Section 6

The final section in the series focuses on bug fixing and a bit of polish to the existing features. This section is compatible with the 4.8 release.

NEW: Mod Support

Includes two small mod examples including a Pink Rifle extension and Flashlight replacement mod. Check out the Modding Sample Project for guidelines & cooker profile setup

Example commandline arg to load the Mod gamemode with the built-in level "CoopLandscape" in a cooked game build: SurvivalGame.exe /Game/Maps/CoopLandscape_Map?game=/ExtendedRifleMod/SurvivalGameMode_PinkRifle.SurvivalGameMode_PinkRifle_C

There is currently no supporting UI to load up specific mod content, please note that the modding pipeline is a experimental and intended for early adopters only!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
