    Geodav's UE4 tutorials and support thread

    Ok while we're all waiting for access i decide to start this thread to give you guys a few starting tips before we hit the video's

    1. Scale - UE4 uses 1cm = 1UU (unreal unit)
    this means all of your content that you port from UDK will need to be scaled up

    2. Decimal - gone are the days of power of 2 for map building, so now you can make your meshes to real sizes, afaik atm grid snap is 1, 5, 10, 25, ....

    3. Characters - as with the scale characters now are real life size in cm's eg:- big guy 196cm's = 196 UU


    more to follow:-

    Unreal Engine 4 playlist http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...eqO2HZ_hQGFx5B

    Blender -> UE4 playlist http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...rhNnelWpOzGWRI


    well the first video is up, Blender to UE4 setup http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR7CA...&feature=share

    i don't intend to add every video here but as things grow i'll post links to the playlists

    ps. from my experience with UE4 please keep to the new Unreal scale so that you don't get the problems i had

      I THINK you can go back to the old power-of-2 numbers grid system though if I'm not mistaken? I'm sure there was an option added for that during the beta. Could be wrong though...

      I quite like the power-2 system personally

        Yeah, in Level Editor - Viewports there's an option to use power of two snap size.

                  Hi Geodav,

                  is the vehicles tutorials you made for UE3 still valid for UE4 ?

                  and if i can wish:
                  can you make tutorial on vehicle weapons, like launching projectiles, shooting vehicles ennemies ... etc ?

                      atm the moment a vehicle tutorial is out of the question.

                      the basic reason for this is the simple fact that looking at what examples i have access to i expect the whole vehicle system will be changing so even if i did record something it would be all wrong with a month

                      so far it takes me about 2 hours to set up a basic wheeled vehicle, with no code for weapons/entry/exit so not really worth my time atm

                      on a side note the content creation side is the same afaik but remember you need to scale it up to the new UE4 scale
