06   NewChild

6 - "Neighbour_Default" is the master character, that means every new neighbor must be child of that class.

To create a new child just right click on the Neighbor_Default blueprint and click on "Create Child Blueprint Class" or just copy-paste one of the presets.

Right now you can set how long the neighbor can see, time before the neigbor change his state from "Hunt" to "Idle" (worried / chill) and materials. You can also modify advaced options created by TinyBuild

You can find more info from the tutorial "ImportNewModel" inside the modkit

I prepared a test map where you can test your new neighbor. You just need to select the correct neighbor from his spawn actor and hit play.
