This Quick Start makes some assumptions about what is available in the project, as such, if you aren't comfortable making substitutions or problem solving on the fly, then you should setup the project as follows.

If you have already completed the Behavior Tree Quick Start , feel free to use that project instead of starting a new one.


  1. Open Unreal Editor

  2. Generate a new project based on the Blueprint Top Down template

    Starter Content is optional for this quick start guide.

If you need further explanation of starting a new project, see the Project Browser User Guide.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
