Setup 1: Add movement input towards mouse location setup (2 blueprints) (easy)

This setup uses the Character's Movement Component and applies forward movement input towards the location of the player's mouse. This setup is simple and clean and does not make use of any RPC's.



Setup 2: SimpleMoveTo AI setup (3 blueprints) (intermediate)

This setup executes a SimpleMoveTo location function on a per Tick basis, both on the server and client. The server replicates the location of the player to all clients and corrects the client's location when necessary.



Setup 3: Reliable Click-to-move setup (5 blueprints) (advanced)

This setup is a bit more complicated and makes use of a server-controlled AI Character which represents the player in the game. In this setup, the player is an invisible capsule with only a camera and a camera spring arm attached to it, which follows the character's AI represented in the world.
