Game development is very challenging and demanding. UE4 is extremely powerful. It can be overwhelming when getting started. Thus, I understand the need for some guidance and emotional support when jumping into UE4.
Hey @TechLord, thank you a lot for your offer and the links. I’m aware it’s a long learning process, and I’m far away from being able to contribute to a commercial project.
I must also admit that my interest is probably rather of private than professional nature. I have been working with 3D-modeling and programming in different contexts and I’ve been interested in the approach of game development for quite a while now.
I have mainly been doing lots of tutorials, example levels etc. So far I’m still experimenting with all kinds of features and I’d say I’m still at a point where I’m trying to find my preferred field there.
On the topic of this thread:
I’ve seen several people on the forums referring to such learning groups, and there are also a few threads about it, most prominently this one probably, which seems to be inactive for 5 years now though.
I liked the idea of beginners getting together to explore features of the engine together a lot. It seems like a good and fun way to learn basics and get through potential (or rather likely) failures.
Sadly there don’t seem to be any really active groups, as this is the most recent thread.
I know there are a lot of professional developers on here, but I also understand that they of course expect to be paid for their work and probably expect a certain outcome, which I cannot guarantee. That’s why I thought such a learning group would probably be the best solution for me, as I can’t really offer any valuable contribution to any professional group or project.
It’s been quite some time, but yeah, if people are still interested, I’d love to start it back up. At this exact moment I’ve been a bit busier than I typically am, what with leading summer camps and work, but I’m sure I could squeeze some time in here and there
