  • Objective markers must be an optional setting in the game.

  • No Enemy wall hacks, enemies are not visible through walls at any time.
  • No cover mechanic, cover is taken by crouching behind something
  • Quests may consist of multiple objectives.
  • Multiple quests may be active at any time.


Input is constantly being checked by the player character only, and level designers and programmers may assume, and use the bIsUsingGamePad custom property ion the Lunei4_21Character class. This was achieved by implementing the 'AnyKey' in the character blueprint, and then setting the FKey Action on the character property: LastKey, using the character short timer function.


  • The game will NOT USE Unreal Engine Pause mechanic, because it actually stops animation updates and various other useful things too
  • Use LuneiGameState->PauseGame, and LuneiGameState->IsGamePaused
    • There is a global blueprint function available for this already, and it is available from C++/BP in 3rd person character.
    • Actors will stop acting when pause is set.
    • Music will dim/fade/stop
    • Animation and physics will still tick, but gameplay logic, and control will no longer be passed along.
    • UI will still function
    • DO NOT USE TICKABLE WHEN PAUSED!!! It has unexpected behavior/results. Use the LuneiGameStatePaused
