    What Are You Working On? Community Screenshots & Videos

    Following the idea of the most popular thread on polycount What Are You Working On? 2014 Edition

    So please share your screenshots and videos from Unreal 4!

    I'll start by sharing some different things I've been working on recently.

    Shield reacting to bullet impacts...





    Material decal matched to the floor texture, dynamically moves over the floor and "fills" it will the current player's health (green, yellow, orange, red)



    If you're cross-posting from your own thread - please provide a link so people can check out your other work too.

    Now happy sharing! Show us what you're working on!

    This is a basic early building layout Work In Progress. The aim here is to get the basic building mapped out in Box Brush adding in some windows, doors and other bits slowly. This will the show the size of the playing area and how the infected and game objectives will work with the game environment.

    Working on a VR Comic Book Reader - That's a shot of the early loading from .cbz (zip) of .jpg files to a texture and dynamically setting them.

    I spent some time figuring out how to load a .jpg, .png, or .bmp to a Texture2D (Ehamloptiran's example works for DDS). That took some doing as I had to search through the engine code to figure out how it loads those formats to textures when importing. Enter the ImageWrapper. Makes it quite easy.

    That done, I had to find a liberally licensed zip file reading solution, which ended up being JUnzip. Then I spent some time converting it to use UE4's engine file manipulation stuff.

    Unfortunately, reading stuff on the game thread blocks (and reading big 1988x3056 or larger images is slow), so I had to set up an multi-threaded system for doing it.

    So now instead of having a node that just gives you the texture immediately, you have a node for requesting a texture be loaded from the zip.

    * If data hasn't already been set up and a request dispatched, FIOSystem::LoadData is called with the appropriate offsets and buffers passed in.
    * Because I can't figure out how to check an FIOSystem request, I'm just looking at two special bytes in the buffer to see if they equal the values I put in there on allocation. (Super hacky, but it works.) If anyone knows the real way to check that, I'd love to know Thanks
    * If the compressed data has been loaded, a runnable thread is fired off to uncompress the data into the final buffer before it's turned into a Texture2D.
    * If the decompress task is finished - SetCompressed (compressed as in JPG not as in ZIP) on the ImageWrapper, get the raw data and copy to mip data of the texture.

    The decompress task just does a bit at a time, keeping track of where it was at. It does 65k bytes at a time right now, though that might change. Lots of optimization to be done.

    Unfortunately, that's not quite enough, as copying the uncompressed data into the mip data for the texture is slow as well - so I'm spending some more time threading that.

    The plugin keeps around a cache of the loaded textures, and then there's a system for polling against it. So I fire off the requests, then poll to see if a given texture is loaded.

    ----------

    @Epic devs,

    As an aside, it seems like the engine could quite easily be extended so that FIOSystem::LoadDataCompressed would handle zip-compressed streams (not the archive formatting, just a compressed chunk of data). I modeled my system after it, and the only thing that's really different is the way it decompresses using ZLIB, as it uses inflate functions rather than uncompress().

    The FulfillCompressedRead function would need to be updated so that it knows not to look for PAK file headers in the first couple of bytes of the compressed data buffer, but other than that it seems pretty straight forward.

    I'd be willing to submit my (converted to engine API) version of JUnzip (the original code is actually public domain, so no licensing issue at all - which is quite awesome of the author) for doing the zip structure navigation and such.

    Been working on a lot of UI lately, all in UMG:

    ( the style is generic, so that I can go any direction with it )

    Great minimalist style!

    p.s. Kill-feed is a lie!

    Edit:

    One more for today. This is a material I'm working on that will determine opacity based on neighboring meshes. I will show a detailed implementation for this at some point, for now I just completed the proof of concept for the opacity effect.

    This is Pre-Pre Alpha but this is a little something I am working on. I hope you guys will like it when I am finished. Right now I am blocking the look and control I want along with the A.I. I am also trying to get a grasp in lighting especially when Stationary lights are and are not overlapping each other. Sometimes the light overlaps and there is no warning or indication then it seems that out of nowhere you have stationary lights overlapping I am learning so it will take some time.

    Simple keyboard configuration menu made entirely with C++

    This is a simple keyboard config menu I created entirely using C++ , didn't use UMG , as facing resolution dependency problem with it. C++ is just superb. I am getting the keyboard key values from a config file , and if valid value is not present , I am setting default value to the config file

    Nice

    I love what you guys have so far! This is exactly the intention of the thread!

    @Chance: Who should I bother to look into the thumbnail sizes? They are awfully small for browsing - size to fit default forum width would be great! (I currently upload to a remote location so I can work around this, having this work out the box on the forums would be much more convenient )



    Edit: Found this in my media folder, figured I'd share it here too!

    It is a quick test I did that uses a gradient mask to slowly grow a circuit board texture. I didn't build the gradient for the entire circuit board as it was purely for testing purposes and comparison with a material I did back in UDK (These results were much better!)

    I was feeling really proud that I've gotten as far as I have in UE4 since I've been learning it... you guys are all really bad ***. I wish I could hit the lottery and hire you all on my team/firm.

    Part of my larger project (see link to Xenomata UGV in signature). I'm currently rebuilding the main framework for that, so it was easier to test the elevator prototype in the third person template for the time being.

    I really like your circuitboard shader stuff btw!

    I remember the vehicle demo when it first came out. Love it!

    And thanks! I may use the circuit effect later for some organic growth effect on sci-fi environment...for now it's just a quick proof of concept.

    In the spirit of sharing, I posted this screenshot earlier this week on Twitter. It's a very early wip of a game I'm working on (doesn't represent the final style, we use mockup blocks for simplicity - currently working on actual models)



    More info on that later! I will create a thread for it - perhaps this week depending on progress.

    They are textured. We tried vertex painting in an earlier UDK prototype, while the lines were extremely sharp while very close-up it didn't scale well like mipmaps do. We suffered heavy aliasing.

    The Tron reference is kind of unavoidable with these graphics The final style will stand more on its own - I hope to share more on that soon in a separate thread for the game.

    Hello,
    I've been invited to do mechanics of a turn based 3d board game ( japanese chess ) with blueprints (without AI for now^^).
    I don't use line trace and tick for actions.
    A basic system that i hope usefull too for chess, checkers and even wargames turn based games.
    I only add a screenshot for now and will do a decent video when system will be fully working :

    Just random assets from the level...It's the room Alice first falls into when she enters Wonderland so I needed stuff in the air while she falls...Later we'll replace these assets with key assets from the rest of the levels....

    Thanks by the way and you've been doing a great job with the forums...

    I am not really building any game at the moment since it would take all of my time , just creating game scenes.
    However it would be nice to work on something in the near future , wanted to improve first .

    Hi

    Working on my Cabin

    Hey guys, I'm building the Holman House in UE4. Interior and exterior. Got it almost entirely modeled. I want to achieve foto realism in every corner. Still a lot of work to be done. I'd also like to see this with realtime GI.

    I love archviz stuff and I love architecture, I come from mobile game development but I want to explore PBR workflows with this project.

    @Inmatic: The cabin is a bit difficult to see, it would benefit a lot from SkySphere / GI or some interior light to grab the attention and remove the pure blacks. (Had a BSOD while writing this, that's a first :P)

    Some screengrabs of what I'm working on.

    Basics to understand what's going on: The grid you see can be switched on/off per object to construct a level during a game session. (has multiple floor levels which you do not see in the first screenshot)

    The meshes are of course just placeholder blockouts to test out the concept.

    @Tom Looman
    Thats something i try to figure out how it works. There is a Skylight allready and its still too Dark. When i raise the strength from the Skylight, the other shadows are too bright.
    It´s not so easy to get the right lighting
