Adding the Improved Quest System into your project will take literally minutes: you just need to add the Quest Component to your PlayerController, copy a few functions from the Demo PlayerController, create a quest in the Quest Table and the main functionality is already implemented.

You can control how the player completes quests in your game using two main functions available anywhere in your project:

  • GetQuestState: pass the Quest Id and get the Quest State (not started | completed | in progress | finished completly).
  • QuestComplete: pass the Quest Id and Quest State you want to set the selected quest to (receive a quest, add one specific step to the quest progress, complete quest).

Detailed documentation with video guides is attached.

A Fog of War feature also available in this version. Static texture-based minimap method will solve all possible problems with creating a minimap in your project.

Notification:

Errors "Unknown structure" may occur in the project if you change one of the project Blueprint structures after migrating the content to your project.

A common solution: https://youtu.be/aMGEqsGIrcI?si=AcZeNI6KYIob14k_

I would like to draw special attention to the fact that you must first click “Compile” and then “Save” all these files. Even if you have the “Save after each compilation” setting set, you still need to click “Compile” and then “Save” since it is the “Save” button that corrects this error.


Updates:

Update 1.1 (05/18/2024):

- fixed possible problems with overlapping User Widgets: if your project uses other User Widgets (for example, an inventory system widgets), then IQS widgets no longer overlap them.

- if the mini-map for a game level is not configured, now the mini-map widget is still displayed and shows markers of quest objectives.

- an improvement has been made for the levels using World Partition/World Composition: in the BP_IQS_BotExampleActor_Objective class, a function call has been added that allows you to enable hiding/showing quest markers at the targets if the quest target was removed from the level/added to the tiled level during the game by World Partition/World Composition.

- the ability to “look around” has been added to the demo character BP_IQS_ThirdPersonCharacter.
