Survivor vision is an incredibly versatile and adjustable visual effect used to reveal more information, secrets and items to the player. It has many different applications and is incredibly easy to set up, customize and plug in to your project.
Survivor Vision allows designers to reveal information to the player in an interesting and special way. Players activate their survivor vision and get a special ability to peer into the depths of the game world, uncovering it's secrets. This sort of effect is used in many big-budget titles (including the Assassin's Creed franchise, Batman Arkham games and The Witcher 3) and has become a staple mechanic of the action/adventure genre, as well as many other pockets of the gaming industry.
Completely customizable, the effect is incredibly easy to set up. Just drop the component blueprint into your character, along with a couple of basic UE4 components (triggers and volumes - all explained in the included tutorial) and set up your controls! It's that simple.
Want to make the effect your own? Change the colours, outlines, fill texture, item indicators, etc? Couldn't be easier! With more settings than you ever need, there are literally THOUSANDS of different effect combinations you can create, and even multiple groups of effects (3 by default - but easily expandable to include more).
Use this tool to direct your players through complicated puzzles, help them stealth through your game, or just enhance the environmental story telling. With fully commented blueprints and materials, you'll have the perfect effect for your game set up in no time!
