After spending some time on vacation and on an epic honeymoon, I have finally had time to get back to continue my original Quest Framework series. But, first, let me interrupt and thank everyone out there for their support. This is by far the most popular content I have ever written and it brings me great joy that you support it and find it useful. With all the time off, and the time back at my day job, I have not been able to fully complete the second part of my Quest Framework series.
However, I do have an addition I would like to share that may be useful. This addition is a new class that generates random Objectives from a predefined list of objectives inside of a Quest. Quest Framework Part 1. Want your players to look this excited for your quests? Don't use this framework for evil, no randomly generated fetch quests allowed! Following the format of the last post, I will layout the header file for you, then explain some of the variables. From there I will layout the definitions and explain all of the logic.

Any suggestions? It's doing my head in, and I'm sure it's just because I'm not grasping the system. Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer.
One of these Arrays is passed into the Intialise BP node. When the method is called, I want it to pick out the UPiece entry from the TArray based on whichever Index it's been given:. This code hard-crashes on Play. Thank you very much. I'm still struggling with how to use that argument in ArrangeNextPiece to add it as a component to ATrack. I've got:. Double check that NextPiece isn't null. If it isn't a valid pointer I do believe that NewObject will cause a crash.
Thanks, I should have been doing pointer protection. I have to go to work but will revisit this as soon as I get home. So if I get rid of the "this" in the NewObject, it doesn't crash, but the object doesn't appear in the world nor the heirachy:.

HailstoneRyan Sep 06 '18 at PM.TArray is responsible for the ownership and organization of a sequence of other objects called "elements" of the same type. As a TArray is a sequence, its elements have a well-defined order and its functions are used to deterministically manipulate those objects and their order.
TArray is the most common container class within UE4. It is fast, memory efficient, and safe. TArray types are defined by two properties: Element type, and an optional allocator.
The element type is the type of the objects that will be stored in the array. TArray is what is called a homogenous container, meaning that all of its elements are strictly the same type; you cannot store elements of different types in a single TArray. The allocator is quite frequently omitted and will default to one which is appropriate for most use cases.
It defines how the objects are laid out in memory and how the array should grow to accommodate more elements. There are a number of different allocators you can use if you decide that the default behavior is not for you, or you can write your own.
More on this later. TArray is a value type, meaning that it should be treated similarly as any other built-in type, like int32 or float. It is not designed to be extended, and creating or destroying TArray instances with new and delete is not a recommended practice. The elements are also value types, and the array owns them. Destruction of a TArray will result in the desctruction of any elements it still contains.
Creating a TArray variable from another will copy its elements into the new variable; there is no shared state. This creates an empty array designed to hold a sequence of integers. No allocator has been specified, so the TArray will use the default, heap-based allocator.
At this point, no memory has been allocated. TArrays can be populated in several ways. One way is with the Init function, which will fill an array with a number of copies of an element:. Add and Emplace functions can create new elements at the end of the array:.Reflection is the ability of a program to examine itself at runtime. We typically refer to reflection as the property system since reflection is also a graphics term. The reflection system is opt-in. You need to annotate any types or properties that you want to be visible to the reflection system, and Unreal Header Tool UHT will harvest that information when you compile your project.
To mark a header as containing reflected types, add a special include at the top of the file. Each of these macros goes before the type or member declaration, and can contain additional specifier keywords. This means the property can be edited in any details panel in the editor, and will show up in the Pawn category.
Check out the Gameplay Programming Reference for more information. It understands a decent subset of the language and actively tries to skip any text that it can; only paying attention to reflected types, functions, and properties.
Most game code can ignore the property system at runtime, enjoying the benefits of the systems that it powers, but you might find it useful when writing tool code or building gameplay systems. UClass can contain functions or properties as their children, while UFunction and UScriptStruct are limited to just properties. The template argument to TFieldIterator is used as a filter so you can look at both properties and functions using UField, or just one or the other. The keyword specifiers are usually either stored as flags or metadata, depending on whether they are needed in a runtime game, or only for editor functionality.
This allows the editor-only metadata to be stripped out to save memory, while the runtime flags are always available. You can safely skip this section if you just want to use the property system, but knowing how it works helps motivate some of the decisions and limitations in headers that contain reflected types.
UBT has to scan headers to do its job, and it remembers any modules that contain a header with at least one reflected type.
Unreal Property System (Reflection)
If any of those headers have changed since the last compile, UHT is invoked to harvest and update the reflection data.

Today I will share all of that code and explain each class as it pertains to the framework. The following classes to get started on a simple quest framework would are AQuest and AObjective, using the UE4 naming conventions for classes. AObjective is metadata about the quest as well the actual worker when it comes to completing parts of a quest. AQuest is a container of objectives and does group management of objectives. Both classes are derived from AInfo as they are purely classes of information and do not need to have a transform or collision within the world.
Objectives Since it is the foundation for a quest, I will first layout and explain AObjective. The only responsibilities of an AObjective is to track the completion of the sub-portion of an AQuest and offer some idea of what the player must do. Added by the supplied helper functions, Update, IsComplete, and GetProgress, we can get a reasonable amount of data about just this tiny portion of a quest. These functions give you all the functionality needed to start a questing framework for your UE4 game.
Depending on the use case, this could be used to ensure a sequential order in objectives or having required and optional objectives.
I will implement it as the first in this tutorial. Only minor changes later on would be needed to use it as an indicator or optional or required quests. Or, you could just add a new property to support both.
There are two more properties that help us out with AObjective management: ObjectiveName and Description. ObjectiveName can be thought of as a unique identifier for the implemented AObjective. The ObjectiveName's purpose is for player feedback. For instance, the FText value could be in simple string terms "Get a rock".
It is nothing specific to the game, it is only something to be used as a hint in either a UI or other visual element to let the player know that they need to do something in order to complete the objective. Next, we can look at the small amount of code that is used to define AObjective. You can turn this off to improve performance if you don't need it.
Indeed, the most complex code is the division in the GetProgress function. Well, that is an extreme implementation detail.
For instance, what if, while an AObjective is active, you want to tick a countdown for a time trialed AObjective.This post is a breakdown of a simple skills tree system. You can use it as a starting point in order to create your own skills tree system. You can find the whole source code on my corresponding github repo.
Please note that based on the particles you will use, you may have to modify the Skill Class. This pack contains two particle systems for the water and fire attack:. Here is the header and source files:. So far, we have created a Skill class which has a max level of 3. For this post, each skill level will be the number of skills that the character will spawn with a single button.
We will modify the transform of the spring arm components in the editor in order to achieve the desired spawn location of each skill level. Create two new Blueprints which inherit from our Skill class and assign the corresponding properties based on your setup:.
Make sure to set the marked items as variables. Compile and save your Blueprint. Then, test your result. A real skill tree is based on roots called parents which are needed to level up child skills. In terms of skill tree, common things are strong parents all of them are needed to level up child and weak parent one of them is needed. You have a valid point, however depending on your game you may or may not need to create a parent see Torchlight for example.
