i am completly new to game engines. a few days ago i started watching tutorials
and reading the documentation - and i have to say : it is very very frustrating…
there is so much stuff to learn.
i read a very good advice here in the forum and i think i will take that aproach :
“make a plan - what exactly do you want to do ? break that into little pieces and solve the smaller problems”
so for my first project i want to do is this :
i would like to create a small town with streets,buildings and some NPCs walking around in the town.
at first i would simply place all that stuff in “my world” and then i can start learning things like :
- how to make NPCs walk
- how to add day/night cycle
- how to add lights
- how to add some simple interaction (press a button and turn on/off that light and so on)
- how to create streets
and so on …
now my question is : where do i get the stuff to fill my world with ? i dont have 3d software like 3ds max,maya …
can i simply buy the 3D models on websites like this and then use it with the unreal engine ?
i would like to buy this town :
and 2 NPCs
is that what i am looking for ?
i would like to share my game with others (non comercial) - so i dont want to download some illegal stuff …
do you have some other links where i can buy models/3d objects/game graphics that i can use with the unreal engine ? or do i always need special 3D software for that ?
