The tutorials so far on the main youtube channel are a great start, but obviously more would be better. Here are some tutorials I’d really like to see. Feel free to make suggestions and I’ll edit my main post to include yours, or if you like my suggestions please say so. That way, we can show which tutorials are of the greatest demand. Obviously, we can’t expect Epic to do everything, so showing them what’s priority from the community would be great I think:
-Landscaping walkthroughs (covering importing height maps, creating custom Landscape Materials from scratch, assigning layers, creating Layer Info Objects/importing RBGA Splat maps for pre-generated terrain from programs like World Machine) (MattD)
-Blueprint tutorials detailing how to recreate one of the first person/third person demo projects from scratch. (MattD)
-A tutorial detailing how to implement basic TDM multiplayer for our new demo project created in the previous tutorial (MattD)
-Basic TDM Bot AI (MattD)
I think these would be super helpful in getting many early projects off the ground and running.
-Creating 4 custom materials from scratch (maybe Grass, Concrete, Metal, Wood). That should cover most people’s needs. (MattD)
And please explain the “why’s” of using certain nodes/values, it doesn’t help us if we are told to use a certain node if we don’t know the why of it. As they say, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. This is especially critical for Blueprint and Material tutorials.
