Welcome to Stevie’s corner !!
At the beginning…
First, a player. I played Unreal in 1998. At that time, I was 26 and was automatically addicted to that game! Then, jumped to UT when it came out in 1999 and play all following UT’s. Except clan based levels, I can say I’ve played pretty much every custom levels that as been released since UT99 to UT3 on Beyond Unreal forums and Epic forums, which, all combined, is well, hummm… a lot 😮
Second, a tester. Since UT99, I test UT stuff, helping the community. I often had the opportunity to play magnificent levels for private testing. Sadly, many didn’t get release to the public. I was many times approached by level designers / MOD leaders to help them by contributing in a way or another. For example, I was very implicated in all Unreal Old Friends map packs for UT3 🙂
After, a UT3 level designer. In October 2008, I started to play with the UT3 Editor. I just wanted to build something for my own fun and also to be able to understand why level designers couldn’t do this or that based on my feedback. In the end, I’ve made 20 levels for UT3 😀 While making levels, learned things that was important to me, I’ve decided to share my knowledge by making tutorials. So, I’ve become a tutorial maker.
When UT4 was officially announced, I started to play with the UT4 Editor, releasing 28 levels, more than for UT3! Sadly, the game was officially abandoned January 24 2023 😦 You’ll find all my UT4 levels here. All of them are available on UTCC, regrouped in the ‘Stevelois maps’ collection.
For me, level design as always been a hobby. I still make levels in my free time for myself & I make them simply for the love of making them. Until DM-Alpu 2050, I shared automatically any new levels with everyone so others can play something else than stock levels. I have stopped sharing them automatically, not because UT4 is officially discontinued but rather due to the lack of feedback, appreciation and recognition from the UT4 community towards them. I was very generous because many levels I created cost me real money by buying packs on Epic Marketplace! Now, I share them only on demand, if players ask for it in the level page or by writing at my FB page. For showing your appreciation and support, add your ‘like’ to the level page & leave your appreciation by writing a comment.
As for Stevie’s corner, started as a simple post on Epic UT3 forums, it became extremely popular and many users suggested me to make a blog. I’ve followed their suggestion, then, Stevie’s corner blog was born in September 2009. After, it became a website. Stevie’s corner is dedicated to Unreal Engine, Unreal Development Kit (UDK) and also Unreal Tournament 99 / 2004 / III / 4. I love the Unreal universe! You understand that I’m in the Unreal word since 1998 and seeing so much stuff (private and public) I thought that I could share stuff that I classify to be way above the average. I promote / share others projects + share my own things. The goal of Stevie’s corner is to put everything I like in regard of the Unreal universe in 1 spot.
To finish… the guy real name behind Stevie’s corner is Steve Loiselle and my common username on most sites is Stevelois like on Deviantart. My native language is French. My English is very average but I do what I can to make myself understand.

You have a very nice collection of Unreal-related stuff! I just dropped by from the Unreal Tournament forums, since I recognized in you another faithful fan of the Unreal universe! I’ve been playing the Unreal series since 2000 as well, especially UT99.
