    Uploaded project to github. Hopefully I can get some contributors.

    I'm looking for Sonic Lost World assets if you have them.

    Checked it. Its missing the animations.

    Are You sure?
    The animations should be there. All Twenty Two of them.

    Was this model and animations ripped from generations? I don't really want to use someone's custom work.

    How's the movement look so far ? I think its nice that someone's started something in Unreal 4.

    It's going very well. It has all the basic stuff. Decel/accel on slopes, jumping on angles. I'm working on importing the model onto the sensor. It works so far.

    Huh. Is this being written in blueprint, or C++?

    Hope it goes well, mate.

    It's all in Blueprint. I don't know C++.

    Alrighty, I'm making a request here. I'm sure some of you are savvy enough to make some 3D assets. I need some test level assets to work the engine around. Since I'm pretty heavy into coding, would anyone mind modeling out some level stuff? The more complete, the better to be honest. Try to include slopes and such. don't include loops because I'm programming spline locking to change the depth of the character. Remaking things like Sonic 2 or 3 levels would be great because I can test out the actual physics and tweak to make correct.

    I'd love to help with that, but my schedule is full up with AXSX sadly. Also you should look at Sonic GDK for inspiration on how to handle the depth changes, Force volumes are really handy with offsetting sonic from the spline.
    There are a lot of good ideas and concepts that Sonic GDK offers that could be recycled in a since if you will.

    Force won't work because I'm not using the built in movement. My idea was creating a spline actor and trigger volumes and just have sonic lock onto the Y position when he enters the trigger.

    Something like this would work using the trigger volumes,

    *The red line is your spline, the blue and red would be the trigger volumes. ( blue volume would be the length of the back platform so if Sonic jumped while in front of the platform it he would offset backwards.)
    *When sonic enters the trigger volume he would than offset.
    *Inside each trigger volume's options you would need to enter speed amount and distance. 0 speed would be instantaneous and something higher would be a slower depth change.
    (a custom trigger volume class would need to be created for this)

    Edit: you could do it with 1 volume as well, if sonic enters the volume he moves depth 1 direction, and at the exit he could move depth another direction. ( would require more options in the end, like left side amount and right side amount for example. or disable depth change per side)

    For the loops you could use the spline path to follow it around depth wise. and if sonic jumps inside the loop's center than the trigger volumes can catch him and push him forward or backwards depth wise relative to which part of the loop he is on.
    Although the loop could be done completely with a set of trigger volumes and no spline too. lol

    I picked ghz as my level for Xak to test and tweak physics in because of 2 reasons:
    *depth transitions in Greenhill zone has the most depth transitions of any of the classics. while sonic 3's angel island only uses it for the loop and the tree tube.
    * GHZ has the most complex ground Collisions in any of the Classic Sonic levels. ( it uses a lot of micro bumps that have physics, while other Sonic games don't really use them with physics)

    all the offsets used in GHZ. it was a real chore!

    Excellent post. Definitely giving me ideas.

    On a side note, I'm working on spindashing/rolling now. Anyone have classic Sonic's Spindash model/Jump sphere?

    Cool, good luck, and yeah if you have any questions just ask, I've got a lot of experience with 2.5D level design and planning for it.

    I was thinking of doing something like this but I lost interest; glad to see someone with the same idea and is competent is making some progress on it.

    If you want I can give you what I converted for Classic Sonic and the shader network I made for him; complete with camera influenced l/r mouth swapping. c:
