Robo Recall is one of the first VR games to truly push modding, allowing you to bring content created by either yourself or other users into Epic Games’ Oculus Rift exclusive. But what if you want to create something for the game but don’t have any coding experience yourself?
Never fear, Epic is here.
In the video below, Tech Artist Zak Parrish walks you through how to create your own mods for the frantic new first-person shooter using Unreal Engine’s Blueprint. The step-by-step guide starts off with simple modding of numerical data in the game (say, how much damage a weapon deals or how much health you have) and evolves into more exciting stuff like adding your own assets. For this tutorial, the developer has taken a gun from its own MOBA, Paragon, and brought it into the game.
We’ve already seen some pretty important mods launched for Robo Recall. One allows players with 360 degree tracking setups to better enjoy the game without the features imposed on those with 180 degree setups. Earlier this week we also reported on a mod that allows you to play the game with the HTC Vive. We’re looking forward to seeing what other players can cook up in the coming weeks.
