Getting the source code from GitHub
There are many tutorials on how to install Third-Party code plugins in Unreal Engine. Typically, you would either download the source code as ZIP file, or clone/fork the repository and fetch it with a client such as GitHub for desktop.
The latter is generally preferred over the former, as it allows you to easily track any changes made to the repository, and update your local version accordingly.
Here’s the quick and easy guide:
Download the ZIP file (In GitHub, Code > Download ZIP), extract it, and place it in your project’s /Plugins directory, or in the engine’s /Plugins directory, depending on the kind of discoverability you want.
Example: MyProject/Plugins/GameplayLocation-main/GameplayLocation.uplugin …
Example: UE_5.0/Engine/Plugins/GameplayLocation-main/GameplayLocation.uplugin …
Make sure the plugin supports the engine version of your project.
