The Swarm

A plug-in for Unreal 4

SwarmPlug (64-bit, PCD3D_SM5) 14_04_2016 11_10_38

As part of Games Technology BSc, I created a plug-in for Unreal 4 which allows users to add customisable swarms of varying intelligence to their projects without the need of programming.

This plug-in is easily placed in an Unreal 4 project and accessed with Blueprints and customisable within the editor inspector. To set up, place the plug-in files within the ‘Plugins’ folder in an Unreal 4.9+ project, in the editor, create a swarm manager inherited Blueprint class and a swarm actor inherited Blueprint class and get customising.
