Showcase and Setup


Why bother creating pathing actors, keeping track of them and getting headaches managing it?

Tired of bad tutorials and bad setups that don't really follow the spline at all or even close to it?


Enter the spline patrol plugin!


This plugin will provide you with a BP library of functions, a spline actor and the necessary actor component and behavior task/decorator to setup a pawn to follow the spline.

You place the spline actor, give your pawns the actor component and correctly set up your behavior tree with the given task and voilà!

Advantages:

  • easy to manage all pathing required through the spline actor
  • need to change paths? no problem! change splines!
  • generate as many path points as you want
  • impose your own custom points
  • ignore points too close or simply unwanted
  • add static or dynamic variability to your pathing
  • tested in PIE and packaged builds!
