From this post onward, before starting with the tutorial, I will introduce you with some important functions and terms of Unreal Engine 4 that we will be using in the tutorials. They will be very helpful to you in making future projects in Unreal Engine 4. So try to remember their functionalities so that you can use them appropriately whenever required. You can also make notes for future references. Continue reading Move AI character on a defined path (AI Character simple Patrol)
