I’ve been following this forum for a while now and it felt like time to finally join ! Normally I work in Unity so I figured it would be interesting for this sketch to refresh and expand my Unreal knowledge.

I figured I would also share some various tutorials that I found along the way while working on this in case they are useful to others as well.
