The included poison system in the MSGT is versatile and offers many options in terms of how it can be used. Setup Requirements The poison system requires the player controller… read more »

Oxygen System

With survival games moving into more and more varied locations and environments, a lot of systems that were once used in smaller isolated cases are now being taken in new directions, and in some cases are even becoming major systems. One such example of this is oxygen management. Whereas it used to only be an… read more »

Power System

Survival games can come in a large variety of themes, settings and time periods. Many of them, however, include items such as flashlights, generators, and such that require a power source.

MSGT Update v1.0.0.3

Hey guys. So this update is the first one that is hitting Gumroad but not the marketplace. At Epic’s request, I have to keep marketplace updates to once a week – so the Gumroad version will be receiving updates whenever they happen, and the Marketplace build will get a cumulative update once a week.

As you reach a state of hypotension (ie. no blood) you then start to lose health rapidly. The MSGT comes with a… read more »

A base level statistic that comes into play in most game types, stamina can be used to limit sprint distance, control how often a player can jump, add intensity to combat, and more. In terms of it’s existence within the MSGT, it can be connected to most other systems to penalize players for not managing… read more »
