    [LEARNING RESOURCE] Announcing Section 6 of Survival Game - Adding some polish

    Hi everyone!

    In the sixth and for now final section of the series we'll apply a coat of polish to the game.
    This includes things like additional sound effects for the zombie, improvements to the AI behavior and fixing the bugs reported by the community!
    I'll be working on improving the layout of some of the classes so you can more easily set up your own game rules or go completely open world.

    UPDATE: Section 6 docs now available!

    Visit Project Page to get started!

    I've been looking into the kite demo assets too, with 6.4GB it's a *bit* heavy to put up on repo. Here are some quick 'n dirty local experiments with a grass material and some of the kite assets.

    And finally the same scene with only grass applied to the landscape and a few assets placed in the foreground. Getting to know the landscape tools myself for the first time, and 4.8 brings some additional awesome features! (Note that Survival is still running on 4.7.X at this time)

        This great map will be the colophon to this fantastic SurvivalGame Series. Will there many changes on source code working on 4.8 with respect to 4.7?. Great work on this last section again.

                      Thanks a ton Tom. Hope to see you doing more projects here. Really enjoyed watching this project evolve. If you ever happen to add any more features a lobby and an inventory would have been nice for this type of game.

                              I don't know what will happen at this time. But expect this to be the last.
