This plugin exposes the Online Beacon functionality onto Blueprints, making it easier than ever to configure and build your own beacons.
Online Beacons are Client/Server connections for sending RPCs without joining a Game Session, being perfect for sending any kind of data between two Unreal Engine instances. Here are a few examples on how to use this System (not all of them are included as built-in plugin examples):
There’s no limit to the features that can be implemented using the Beacon System. However, Unreal's default Online Beacon system only supports C++, which means that you can not create Blueprints and solve the problem as you normally would. To see more about Beacons, see the Official Unreal Engine Documentation.
This plugin enables the user to create their own Online Beacons all directly in Blueprints, without the need of a single line of Code and .ini file edits.
