Hey everyone I just wanted to post this on here to show the community my progress however minimal it is to you all.
For anyone that doesn’t know from the pictures the map which I am trying to recreate is the infamous Isla Sorna aka Site B in Jurrasic Park lore. It is just one of several islands in the Muertes Archipelago and happens to be the setting for both Jurrasic Park 2: The Lost World and Jurrasic Park 3.
Currently I have just the rough landscape done for the island but in the future I wish to add the necessary features that make a map including textures, foliage and water. Alongside these I want this map to obviously be playable so I’d like to add everything else that you can currently find in Ark. Once i’ve gotten the bulk of the work out of the way I plan to finally add buildings and facilities that are scattered across the island including the many set pieces that were featured in the Jurrasic Park movies. These will of course include the research facility that the characters fought off raptors in at the end of the 2nd movie as well as the airfield, aviary and several research facilities from the 3rd movie. While all of this sounds amazing and awesome it all seems to have hit a speed bump. This speed bump happens to be me, and my lack of experience with the Unreal Engine. Directly after finishing the landscape I tried to paint my terrain with grass and stone textures but so far I have yet to find any way to. Also I’m having difficulty with the water plane since the one that comes packed into the dev kit has holes all over it for the many caves in the actual game. If anyone has any information or tips on how to reach my goals and fix my problems please let me know because im desperate (mostly excited actually) to finish this map and run like crazy through the tall grass like in the movies while getting chased by raptors.
