a Framework for spells/abilities, can be used to create spells and abilities, create spell/ability books for your characters, handle ability cooldowns, and each ability can have its own logic and behaviour.
A stand alone system that can be added to any character, allows creation of basic spells/abilities,
adding these spells/abilities to the character's spell book, allowing them to select active spell/ability and to conjure/activate it. each character spawns its own instance of the system so that
each can have its own "spellbook". Spells/Abilities are divided into a blueprint and
data component where the blueprint component represents the look and the logical behaviour and the data component holds the name, description, cast time,
power, type, school etc. there is a datatable that holds the data of all spells/abilities.
Spells/Abilities are added from the database to the pawns spellbook using a simple function.
A target actor can be speficied when casting, if target isn't
specified the spell/ability travels from the Caster actor (or how ever programmed), The system has been tested with the Top Down, FIrst and Third Person templates.
Because each spell/ability is a separate blueprint, you could program its logic to do anything you may need
The asset packs comes with 2 sample spells/ability (fireball),(HealingBall) you need to provide your own particle systems/meshes/animations/sounds for your spells.
There is an optional UI that can be disabled.
This UI contains: currently selected spells/abilities, action bar that can be key-bound with a single function, spell cast progress bar. and a spellbook.
