[Community List] Free Software Tools & Resources List

Yes , this a Autodesk file format :smiley:

Hi there! Thanks for the thread. It is very useful for everyone here, I guess. I’d like to share some of mine too. I use webbuilder.com website for cool and useful web design tips and different web builders. They help me a lot if I need to create a nice website fast

This is not what this thread is for vdavydenko.

I have checked the site and found nothing that will help game developers for free (starts at $99), also for a site that is offering such services the web design of the page is a little weak to say the least…

I decided to see what the other post you wrote in the forum was and…well, surprise surprise, more spam.

Note to others: if you are looking for some affordable hosting, I’d recommend someone like dreamhost, I picked up a deal that hosts as many domains as I need and includes an SVN repo (of unlimited size) for less than £50 a year…

Thanks, I’ve added it to the list. looking at the comparison chart on their site FBX is import only but it looks like it might be possible to export to .OBJ

Please do! Also, if you have any free resources on your list that aren’t mentioned here then please share :slight_smile:

Hey,

I’ve stickied this to the top of Content Creation so everyone can find it more easily. :slight_smile:

Awesome list and some cool stuff in here I need to try!

Thanks for starting this thread.

Thanks Tim!! :slight_smile:

hi ULLS,

had a thought, have you considered adding free desktop video recording software to the list?, recording gameplay/tutorials…ect is an integral part of developing games.

just an idea:)

Hi Smokey, I didn’t really consider screen capture software as game play footage can of course be captured with matinee, however if you feel it would be beneficial to the community then please add to the list. :slight_smile:

Loads of free motion captured animations. =D

Thanks! Great addition, I’ve added it to the master list. :slight_smile:

Loads of free tuts in really really detailed e-books and loads of free blueprints (character selection screen/ rechargeable torchlight/ burger flipping etc). Courtesy of Ryan Shah! :smiley:

Great resource! Added to the master list.

Thanks VeerWolf & Ryan :slight_smile:

Normal thief. Helps to “steal” normal from another mesh to a target mesh. :stuck_out_tongue:
(Thanks to time spirit, mentioned it in another post)

I made a umg server browser example, called IronFox. Similar to my other umg project, except this one is with the blueprint online session nodes.

I knew I was forgetting a super awesome program that no one should go without…

OBS (Open Broadcaster Studio) - Live-stream, screen capture to flv/mp4, multiple sources & overlaying video on video, records off the GPU so it has a very small footprint, Open Source.

There is fraps and some others too… but this program makes them fairly irrelevant (I use fraps only for the FPS counter now) ;). Must have if you want to record tutorials, record some footage from UE4, or live stream!

Also, for coders:

Visual Studio 2013 Community - Basically the Pro edition with different terms (max 5 users per company, make less than $1million/year, no Enterprise dev) - Which means it’s perfect for small UE4 teams!
NotePad++ - Syntax highlighting, supports most languages, lightweight

For Audio:

LMMS - Audio production, sound generator, beats/baseline, synthesizer, & MIDI controller

And Misc:

GifCam - Quick and easy program for recording Gif images.

Model downloads:

Yobi3D Search Engine - A search engine for finding 3d models

I’ll keep looking for more :slight_smile:

Probably the best best best FREE foliage pack you can find! Credits to fighter! :smiley:

Can you guys recommend any particular software (or set of softwares) or plugins for software(s) modelling buildings? I don’t mean like just closed off building models, I’d like to actually mesh out entire one-piece interior/exterior meshes. (Minus moving objects like doors, those would be separate, but the walls, floors, stairs, ceilings, rooms would all be one piece.) I did this with Sketchup when I used Cryengine, but applying materials to Sketchup models converted to FBX and imported to Maya always gives horrid results.

Blender should work fine for that. Epic even have a whole Twitch stream with using Blender with Unreal Engine.
