Might get slammed for this. I don’t know. It’s my first post here.
I’ve just recently decided to get into game development. I’m intermediate level with Java as far as programming goes, with some scripting knowledge. I know Unreal uses C++ which is similar to Java given that they’re both object oriented, but I also know that you can do a lot with Unreal without coding knowledge.
With all of that said, does anyone have any advice? When/how did you get started? I plan to just jump in and try and figure things out as I go, expecting many, many headaches along the way. I’m good enough to learn a programming language as I go along and pick up things along the way. Can you guys just give me some of your experiences as far as when you first started, some of the obstacles you had to overcome, things I should definitely read up on / brush up on skill-wise, etc.?
