how to open the StarterMap.umap file


I’m following the Introduction to Materials in UE4 - 2 - Creating a Basic Material tutorial but can’t find a way to open the StarterMap file in UE4.5, didn’t see it in the Open Level window, tried drag and drop it onto the Editor…

Please help.


Create new project with starter content. After loading project select in menu File/Open Level. In Open Level dialog select “Starter Content” folder. And now you can load StarterMap.


It wasn’t in the Open Level window after creating the project but I restarted UE4 and it showed up this time.
