edited 4 years ago. As a programmer they only really bother me when you need multiple nodes (particularly any maths functions). That is why I started this thread: Can any of you that have used both to outline why would you choose the one or the other? NodeCanvas is a more complex and flexible visual scripting plugin for Unity that's far superior to Playmaker; but it requires a bit more custom scripting and knowledge of C# to take full advantage of. darthviper107.

It is an event driven state machine that is, from my extra experience with it, clunky and unintuitive. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/BlueprintComms/index.html. The official subreddit for the Unreal Engine by Epic Games, inc. It reminded me of Playmaker in Unity (which I am using for my current game project). Blueprints however, was great fun. That said, it looks interesting. If not for anything then for the inventory + dialogue option. For visual scripting in unity you have a few better options such as flow canvas, uscript, and blox2. Playmaker has a ton of tutorial from what I've seen, which seems sort of lacking on Blueprints' side. As you appear to be someone who knows more about the blueprint unreal thing. They aren't integrated in the system fully. This was a really enjoyable experience. The add on ecosystem is incredible, you can find tools to do anything. Adventure Creator was something I have been thinking about for a long time now. So I don't have to buy anything. Everything I can do in code I can do in Blueprints especially after some of the more recent updates. It looks to me like Unity is getting ready to release their own version of blueprints in the next year or two. But the problem is that I am on a tight budget, if I want to do everything in Unity, to make it easy I would have to buy Adventure Creator. Cookies help us deliver our Services. ( Log Out /  Playmaker is not really like UE4 blueprints. Objects, data, inheritance, logic, computation, networking, etc. It was confusing (not the math, no) but the delegates, functions and what not... too many things to keep track of. That is a bigger margin to use Unity Free in and you'd pay only once (if you so choose) $1500 for a pro license or $75 per month. That is one of the things that got my attention right away. Coming into it, I  had never used blueprints before, so to go through it the way we did, and to already have a basic understanding of coding made it a relatively easy to pick up (that’s not to say I didn’t encounter some issues along the way however!). This was a really enjoyable experience. Here's what I'm doing: For my final workflow I've chosen Unity + Playmaker + Adventure Creator + NodeCanvas. If you do choose Unity then I strongly recommend Adventure Creator. I've read that Playmaker's is basically one of the more popular visual scripting tools available for Unity while Blueprints is for Unreal. ( Log Out /  Unreal also has all that free Infinity Blade graphics which could be useful in terms of starting up, testing and the initial tinkering. Blueprints + UE4 VS Playmaker + Unity? I have seen that around, but it doesn't seem to have much integration with other Unity assets. Otherwise I'll have to use Playmaker to build all of these features and last time I tried something complex with Playmaker I ran into many problems. But I can say with confidence that it now feels incredibly simple for a non-programmer like me to pull off creating a traditional adventure game. I guess if you put the comparison between Blueprints power vs Unity vanilla, Unity isn't that good from what you've said. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.com. For some reason I felt that UE4 seems more coherent and supports visual scripting for us non-programmers better than Unity. The past few weeks in the GDS workshops, we learnt the fundamentals of Playmaker for Unity and Blueprints for Unreal. I have tried out Playmaker a few times and I am using it as we speak with one of my projects. I have zero experience with programming. As a programmer, I usually stand clear of those, as good old object-oriented FSM works perfectly. Not like what UE4 does with Blueprints, it is already part of UE4 rather than some add-on. Press J to jump to the feed. It reminded me of Playmaker in Unity (which I am using for my current game project). Do you run into many compatibility issues between AC and Playmaker? Playmaker is nowhere remotely close to blueprints. ... Blueprints are authoring tools designed for non programmers so designers and other team members can help tweak and prototype. Can blueprints be easily called from code and the reverse? UE4's Blueprint scripts resemble flowcharts where each box represents a function or value, with connections between them representing program … My team hasn't tried Unity because honestly the 5% fee on UE4 is too good to ignore and every release is packed with features. That's good to know. In the long run and as my knowledge of C# expands, I think I'm going to try to rely on NodeCanvas more than Playmaker. Which is part of 4.11 as an experimental feature. That said, it feels a bit messy -- at least for my taste. In blueprints it takes a bit of messing around to get a similar thing to happen, which I found out when we were tasked with getting a ladder to drop down on a key press.

I have yet to see a compelling reason why we should spend a few grand on Unity, especially with the number of plugins needed to match what UE4 has out of the box, so to speak. Or perhaps what would you recommend in terms of making a 2D adventure game? We get blueprint for free same with Nativized Blueprint (Blueprint to C++ Conversion). I mentioned Playmaker as I got the license a very long time ago (a couple of years back). My gripe is that it seems weird sometimes. Change ), Games I’m looking forward to and other miscellaneous pieces of information, https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/BlueprintComms/index.html. Btw. And because it more visual than writing code, it makes it easier to figure out the logical progression of thing, thus making it easier to fix.
