Video Demo Doc

This project features:

  • A simple but reliable system to create any cableway track for a two gondolas (3 wires per side) with stations
  • Track creator using automatic placement or manual placement to fit any map, you can adjust pillars positions and the direction of the cableway in a few steps
  • Track is made using instanced static meshes to minimize draw calls so it's possible to create very long tracks without problems
  • Easy creation: specify pillars coordinates or automatically create them (with a system to delete unwanted pillars) and drag the second station to the location you need
  • Easy start: just create the track and drag and drop two gondolas blueprint assigning the track actor to them
  • Textures are created with substance painter and 3D models are created with Maya (no substance plugin is required)
  • Easy to migrate (only two actors)
  • Easy to modify because it's made using static meshes and most of the parameters for the track can be easily changed
  • It's completely automatic but can be also controlled with a simple hud (not implemented)
  • Speed is based on a float curve easy to modify
  • Sounds are already setup
  • Each mesh is using an instance of a master material (one for metallic and one for non metallic)
  • Texture size from 1024x1024 to 4096x4096
