I don’t know if this happens to others, but I have an extremely difficult time creating anything outside of a tutorial. I can follow the tutorials fine and make everything the tutorial requires, but as soon as I try to create my own game I can’t even take the first step.
Right now I want to create an extremely simple game - but I don’t even know how to start. The game would have a machine that I could trigger via a lever and would spit out a persons name that is in a list I have imported (preferably from .csv file). It would be cool if it had some kind of spinning slot machine type animation on the machine as well, but right now I can’t even get it to function with Print String.
What game blueprints would be required to make something like this. My initial thought was to create a database with a .csv and then somehow add that to an array and choose at random…but I can’t even get that to work.
What are the first steps people take to even try to get something like this to become a reality?
