While it’s looking similar to Minecraft, my intention was not to create a game similar to Minecraft, but just to see if it works to make a voxel based game with good performance using Blueprints only (will change later!) in Unreal Engine 4. The Minecraft look then later came when I searched for textures, and actually the whole internet is filled with public domain texture packs for Minecraft. So it was the best way for me to get textures for a voxel based project, since I am no artist. And let’s be honest, it does not look bad like this, having the graphical power of UE4 combined with the pixel look of textures which were intented to be used in Minecraft!

What am I using for this? I also want to say that I have never spent any time on reading about how Minecraft did anything, everything I did for this is just my ideas on how to do it, and that was the fun about this. I have also never read anything about how any other voxel based game works, so I really started at 0 for this.

I am not using any plugins at the moment. The whole project s 100% blueprint with no C++ being used. I think this project is a great example for the power of blueprint. If you would have showed this to the Epic Devs who originally built blueprint, they would probably not have believed it how far blueprint came.

The most time I have spent on getting the dynamic streaming of chunks working in a nice and performant way. But after a lot of work, I think I got it to work quite perfectly.

Please tell me what you think about it! 🙂
