Getting Started

Objective Waypoint System is a Blueprint asset package which you can migrate from our project to yours.


To use Objective Waypoint System in your project, open Epic Games Launcher and create Objective Waypoint System project. Open the project and access Content Browser. Navigate to Content/ObjectiveWaypointSystem/Blueprints folder, right click on BP_WaypointComponent and choose Migrate from Asset Actions.

This is the only component that you have to add to your player character since it is responsible for finding the path to the given actor or location. Within your player character blueprint, add BP_WaypointComponent.

Once the component is added and selected, you can adjust various settings from details panel.

Nav Filter ClassFind path on selected navigation class only.
Tick TimeIf greater than 0, path finding is automatically called every N second.
Nav ModeType of waypoint to show. Options are Spawn and Spline
Max number of meshesNumber of meshes to spawn. 0 is not recommended since it will try to spawn as many meshes within character and target. Only applicable if Nav Mode is set to Spawn.
Mesh DistanceDistance between spawned waypoint meshes. Only applicable if Nav Mode is set to Spawn.
Draw Debug StringsDisplays information about spawned meshes. Only applicable if Nav Mode is set to Spawn.

After setting up the component it is upto your game logic on finding the target actor or location to find the path to. Once you have acquired it, simply pass that information to Find Path to Actor or Find Path to Location functions and you are good to go.

Below is an example function straight from the project found on Unreal Engine Marketplace.

And to start finding the path, simply call the Find Path to Actor function. Here is an example triggering that function when F key is pressed.
