We mimicked the standard building system in survival games such as Rust or ARK. The modular pieces provides an easy way to mix and match components to create a custom Cabin look.
The pieces are built using a 3×3 meter grid. With the addition of a 1.5m height wall/roof to give that extra bit of control and variety. Because of this simple meter size, you can quickly snap to a grid all the pieces should align quite easily.
The cabin parts come with full collisions built with UE4 primitive boxes to keep performance hit low and keep collision simplified as to not cause any bugs.
Along with the cabin there are a handful of fun props to place around the level. Things like docks, canoes, oars, wood logs etc.
