So the preview release is out, and I’d like to know 2 things.
First, where is the world browser? I created my map with it in 4.2 and now I can’t find it anymore, all there is is this new Tile Map Editor which seems to have 0 functionality. I can’t find anyway to load my tiled world back up.
Second, I can’t find the integrated speed tree. I thought 4.3 was suppose to have speed tree included.
Is there some key-combo I must do to unlock the new features :P?
Here’s a copy-paste from an internal mail about it from Dyomin. It will be in the next engine news post as well (so I’m not going to upload the images, they’re just pictures of the levels and level details tabs):
Well I find it odd that the world browser is completely missing, its nowhere in the menu, and no longer under experimental…
World browser is enabled by default with 4.3. It does not require special “Open World” command anymore. Instead there is a flag in World Settings “Enable World Composition” that activates it. New Levels Browser can work with both: “traditional” level streaming and tiled worlds. When “Enable World Composition” is enabled you should see an additional button in Levels Browser toolbar that summons world minimap. There is also documentation for World Browser, I hope it will make into 4.3.
We’re working on the 4.3 ‘preview’ release notes. Hopefully we’ll have the info about the new features and changes in your hands tomorrow! Of course, we will have exhaustive release notes when the build has finished testing.
Anyone else having problems building 4.3 (switching over from 4.2)? Seems like the Speedtree implementation is the culprit:
I applied the new .zip dependency content. I recreated the project files using GenerateProjectFiles.bat. Settings set to Development Editor and Win 64.
I have used Rebuild All. Three times (with normal builds inbetween).
SpeedTreeCore_Windows_v7.0_VC12_MTDLL64_Static.lib is present.
edit: Right-clicking the speedtree libs and I see they were blocked because they ‘came from a different computer’. I unblocked them. Tried re-building but still no success (‘can’t open inpput file’). Looking up error: Linker Tools Error LNK1181 | Microsoft Learn
I’m also having an issue with 4.3, particularly the AIController. It looks like you have to remove the “GameFramework/” from “AIController.h” but now when it compiles it looks like it cant find the “AIController.h” file. Any ideas ?
