V3 is currently under review and is not publicly available at this time - by purchasing this product you understand you will receive V2 until V3 has been approved by Epic. Thank you.


V3 Update Notes

  • UE 5.1 Support
  • Variable Name Changes
  • Organized and rebuilt existing code - deleted unused code.
  • Large amounts of code condensed into new functions.
  • Additional Third Person Template content added (for retargeting).
  • Controller Force Feedback added.
  • Camera Shake changed to use an Anim Notify in "LoopZipline".

Please note UE5 projects cannot be downgraded into UE4 projects - meaning a UE4 version would need to be rebuilt from scratch. There are no plans for a UE4 version at this time.

Auto Grab no longer uses Event Tick for better performance and consistent execution.

New Screen Effects have been added to improve the visual quality of zipline use:
