F.A.Q.

Can I build bigger structures?

Yes, there is no limitations on size and It is very easy to make actors compound of many different buildings or or resources. Modifying default system behaviour is very easy too thanks to a decoupled design that makes use of interfaces.


Can I make the structures have functionalities after/before being build?

Yes! There is an example of campfire that you can bring on fire after finishing constructing It. You can add as many interactions as you want to each structure, ALSO AT RUNTIME!


How can I get support/ask for features?

You can do so in the official GitHub: https://github.com/nesjett/UnrealEngineBuildingSystem/issues


Is it easy to add particles and sounds to different types of events in the gameplay?

Yes, again thanks to using interfaces, extending functionality and adding post/pre effects is very easy. There are examples included.
