Ok, so to make this simple I’m going to list all of the issues I have run into in my short time working with Unreal 4 and the Ark Dev Kit, having come from Unreal 3 UDK.
- How do I add Pickup Rocks, not the one’s you hit, although that is another issue. There are no tutorials for this.
- How do I get the day cycle working? I have moved over all of the assets from TheIsland, and fixed all the references, but I still have no moving directional light, the sky is set to nighttime and never changes and the map is light like its daylight.
- Is there, or is there not an easier way to cover an entire map in foliage, not bushes for berries, but just simple grass, using the foliage tool makes it all of 5 minutes then there is so much ground cover that the entire engine lags and crashes.
- When i use the level streaming and world composition, Save, close unreal editor, reopen it and reload my world, the different levels are no longer lined up, foliage will be floating, 1000 or so units off horizontally, and switching between levels compounds this by moving levels all over the place and there seems to be no way to realign them… By far my most frustrating issue…
I have gone over most of the tutorials I have found that are specific to the ark dev kit, and they are either less than helpfully descriptive, or simply do not work the way that the creator of the video/tutorial has instructed me to do things. I’m very dedicated to learning how to use this kit, and I want to start twitch streaming my builds and making my own YouTube Tutorials for the Ark Dev Kit and Unreal 4, seeing as how there really aren’t that many and there are a lot of features that simply haven’t been disscussed, but if I’m having difficulty just getting the sky to work, I fear I might need some help.
