Site updates

Site updates 3

I have made a few small updates about UE4 sub pages and links.

I’m constantly trying to enhance the user experience and I hope that my site will be more and more referenced so people can find a ton of stuff to discover, look at and read about 🙂

Site updates 2

In the main menu, The 3D / Art as been rename 3D / Art / LD. LD means Level Designers. Instead of having them permanently on the right side bar, I put them under a Level Designers page. That way, the right side bar is much shorter and I didn’t loose them from my site. The list of Level Designers will eventually grow so having them in a separate page will be more practical 🙂

Continuing with the right side bar, under Links, Marty’s Carnage Company as been move into the ‘News / forums’ section and renamed Unreal Carnage. The ‘3D / Art’ section as been renamed ‘3D / Textures’ section. In all, some links as been removed and replace.

I’m constantly trying to enhance the user experience and I hope that my site will be more and more referenced so people can find a ton of resources to look at and read about!

Enjoy 😀

UE4 links (guide, tut) update 7

I constantly check for new UE4 tuts by Epic and some as been recently released. In my UE4 links (guide, tut) page, 2 new sections as been added, see below in bold. Also few tuts in other sections as been added. I add a description below each section too 🙂

Blueprint Time Attack
– The basics needed to create a simple Time Attack style race completely through Blueprints.

Paper2D game
– Learn how a 2D game can be created from scratch, using Epic template as a guide and explaining each step along the way.

Unreal Tournament 4 sub page added

A reminder, under the Unreal Tournament main menu, you will find lot’s of stuff for all Unreal Tournament retail games.

Since the upcoming of Unreal Tournament 4, a UT4 page as been added with already very promising custom stuff 😀

I follow lot’s of thread in the UT4 forums and even if the release of UT4 is still very far away, the enthusiasm for the new game is simply amazing ! I’m more than happy to see veteran mappers / modders / sound designer and much more making a comeback to bring something new for UT4 🙂 Many projects (maps, music, sounds, etc) have already started and some are already finished !

So, to begin with, there are 2 sub pages wich are UT4 custom maps and UT4 custom music. Many pages will be added with the time so I strongly suggest you take a look & see what as been already started, you won’t be disappointed 😉

Here is a minimalistic UT4 wallpaper by y2k 🙂

This new UE4 page is the continuity for UE4 of my previous UE3 scenes and environments page 😀 The videos you’ll find in this page are projects made by individuals. They show original and HQ content, a proper audio track and a great immersion. They are very inspiring for all designers and also very interesting to watch even if your not a designer ! Good watching 🙂
