Created for an upcoming game to go beyond interactive books seen in games so far, but available on the Marketplace first, so maybe you’ll get to steal the thunder. Pages are generated from localized Text (you can use textures if you prefer). The books are analog; open to any angle (0-180 deg) and pages can be turned, even while the book is opening/closing. Pages can have “Ephemera” actors attached to them; maps, notes, photos, bookmarks, etc. like a journal or scrapbook.

Grab a prefab style of book and adjust its settings to your needs, or use the Editor to custom-design the interior and exterior of your book using drop-down menus, sliders, etc. If none of the options are quite what you want, features accept custom overrides.

Pages can display moving pictures (and sound), or camera feeds from other scenes in the game (as seen in “Moss”).

Page text has an option to be revealed letter-by-letter, for the appearance of self-writing or VO. Pages can be updated by other Blueprints while the game is running to show new information. Each page can generate its own unique variation of paper aging/dirt. Auto page-numbering option. Lots more.

A versatile Book Controller Blueprint is also included for quick easy player control of books when player enters the trigger box. You can have it bring the book to the player’s view, or shift the player’s view to a CloseUp camera. A demo map includes a dozen books in a range of styles to use as prefabs, as well as book controllers to browse sample books, and an example camera-feed-to-page.
