Description


Do you need a LOADING SCREEN between scenes in your project? That's exactly what this blueprint system does. The LOADING SCREEN SYSTEM (LSS) is a Framework intended to add dynamic Loading Screens to your Games - both, during Level Transitions as well as on Start up. It's incredibly easy to include in your Projects and the Visuals of your Loading Screens are entirely yours to design as you see fit.

Simplicity in mind: Drop one Actor into your world and set everything up in its details. Call level transitions from anywhere with a single node + the level’s name. The system will handle the transition and smoothly fade into the loading screen and then into your level.
