Description


This toolkit allows you to easily integrate geographic location support to your projects. You will find textures, materials, static meshes, and blueprints themed on location. This is a blueprint only pack which makes the engine's native location infrastructure practical.

To gain access to a mobile device location: add the location engine blueprint actor component to your game instance or level. The location of the player/device is automatically available and refreshed.

In addition to the location engine actor component Blueprint, you will also get:

  • - 100+ textures/materials: Earth, location pins and markers, and geographic grids.
  • - Eight location pin static meshes. 
  • - Modular location pin/marker Blueprints. 
  • - Modular compass textures.
  • - Earth planet materials palette.
  • - Location-related macros Blueprint and interfaces.
  • - Data, planar, spherical location map Blueprints.
  • - And more...

Blueprints come fully documented with optional, human friendly logging and debugging information for troubleshooting. Targeted at mobile platforms in general. Tested on Android. Extensible to other platforms when the Unreal Engine API support and implementation becomes available. An Android application demonstrating some of the toolkit features is available on the Google Play store.
