After years of 3D modelling, my focus has shifted to learning to program in C++ for UE4. I am overly excited to report that it is going well for me & I'm feeling extremely confident that in the near future, I will be able to deliver a prototype, all on my own.
The many delays in the past have been the result of unreliable coders, who inflated their abilities to join my team, only to let me down. Hindsight, I should have started coding sooner, but on the bright side, these disappointing experiences were a valuable lesson. I may have lost time, but I haven't lost my determination.

I have a discord server setup for those interested: Discord.gg

Update April 10th:
So I'm well passed the basics & have been using C++ directly in UE4, with some minor Blueprint usage.
Right now I'm just focusing primarily on C++. I will make sure to learn Blueprint thoroughly once I'm far enough in with C++. I'm moving at a comfortable pace, which fortunately has been rather quick. I'm roughly 1/3 into my courses & I may be ready to begin coding for Pirates in as little as 3 weeks.
