WGU Gamedevelopment Discord is gone.

Yesterday our Gamedevelopment Discord server was hacked.
One of our moderators account got hacked and he/she wiped out the complete discord server. I’m so mad that i do not now if i will continue.

This was more then a year of work i lost in a second. and to rebuild my server will be alot of extra work.

So for now i will not rebuild the server. I keep it open but thats it.

Hope you all understand my reaction.
thx

– Combine can switch Fullbody and option materials
– Store combinations on character
– Save and load The combinations made

All done true filling some datatables

UE4 Riding System

Welcome to our Riding System Project, This project is made by Jengske_BE for the Unreal Engine.
In this series we attempt to build a animal-player combination or better a horse/rider combination. 

We provide a pdf file you find here, aswell as a video playlist on Youtube.

Our first tutorial series is removed as we found a better way in setting up the system. This does not mean we deleted the code no, we modified that code and it was a bit to messy so thats wy we created this fresh tutorial series.

In this section you will only find references to the guide and playlist and screenshots from our project.
We first start by getting the rider on the animal  only focussing on that, once we mange to do so, we continue adding the animations.

Who can follow this guide/tutorial?
The current code was tested as a migration to a excisting project and also a fresh project.

What assets are needed?
You need a RiderCharacter and a AnimalCharacter you want to ride, you also need basic movement animations for both and a mount/dismount animation.
If you do not need a mount/dismount your also good to go. the more finer animations you get, the better your result will be.

Can you share the project files with us?
No, all assets used in this project are payed versions and i can not share. You find the links to the assets inside the pdf guide.

Our goals:

– Have a character ride a animal , our first guide
Have a tool, wagon, attachment to the animal
Finetuning till a fully working system thats hold a tutorial series along.

For those working with the Unreal Engine and have a good understanding about these things, feel free to share your knowledge as i’m a UE4 beginner.
For those having comments on the way i build the system, do not go put stupid comments instead point to were i made the mistake so i can adjust and test this before i update the guide.

WGU Server Info: 28-05-2019

Hi,

For the moment we having a hardware failure off one of the disks on our NAS, due to this failure we running on one disk only. We looking to solve this issue. If we could not find a solution we are forced to shutdown the NAS to prevent us from loosing the second disk with all our data.
Meaning that all our gameservers will be down untill we fix the NAS.

WGU maintain his structure pure on donations or Members that invest to keep all services running. So we have no big budgets or incommings for these situations.

We are now prepairing a external disk to be used as temp datastore to move our server to.

We also backupped the two Outlaw servers and reinstalled them with the new patch. Remember that this is still early access so, do not go building big as you will loose all after up comming patches.

Lets hope for the best.

Outlaws of the old west server wipe.

Yesterday when i visit our Outlaw servers i saw that everything was messed up not to say unplayable.
– Trains not connected anymore, sink into the railroad.
– Buildings, objects totally not rendered.

On 28/05/2019 they planned a major update, i think it is best that we wipe the servers after the update.

Keep in mind that this is still early access and you do not build large, as the servers could be wiped for comming updates.
