    Here is my first result:

    A simple bhop map (see Quake 3 or Counter-Strike for reference) made within minutes.
    So, if you struggle making maps or designing at all...buy that package.
    I like it, can you create your map in your project by copying the SuperGrid folder in your project or you need to use the SuperGrid editor only to do that?

    I think that bugfixes/polishing is important, but come on - updates without new content is boring =D
    Yeah, I want to add some new textures and features, but first update will be more or less "hotfix" due to obvious reasons
    I definitely will check it out after your update, it really will make level prototyping easier and faster

    Labidus, just select an object and press space to switch from moving to scaling and rotating an object...
    check out the official Unreal Engine youtube channel (and other channels too), there are also really good introduction videos that will get you familiar with the basics...

    Hi I just buy this, demo looks great!

    My question is: I copy/paste the SuperGrid folder from your content dir to my current project content, when I am in the editor, I go in Content/SuperGrid and select a mesh to put in the map but I cannot, same thing for the texture, what I need to do to add supergrid on my existing project?

    Also I tried on your demo, since I am noob in this U4editor, what is the key to SCALE/ROTATE object, lol thanks for your help.

    Thanks!

    Just played the demo level. Great music, very well done!

    I'll buy it as soon as it's working in the UT-editor,

    ...some things are working fine if you copy a folder into the UT-ContentFolder, others don't... (from a beginner's point of view)
    and also migrating files from an UE-project to the UT-editor doesn't always work (e.g. if you're migrating the "Game Textures Free Materials Pack" you have to re-insert the textures in the Material Editor)

    Well, there is only one way to implement bevels and modifying geometry - code plugins(New procedural geometry system for BP in 4.8 is interesting though), but I'm not sure I'll make this in foreseeable feature. Also, I think Epic will roll out replacement for BSP sooner or later, so we will see!
    About custom primitives - there are some rules for SuperGrid models, I will try to cover them and possible caveats in guides I will post later.

    Anyway nice work, I will buy one tonight

    If I'd be able to fix this with Raxxy method then it will start to work in UT editor in 1-2 weeks, maybe earlier
    Cheers!

    Hi zeOrb, just getting back to you for the topic of material packs for fantasy.

    Ideally, My personal requirements would be to use anything that has stone, or old brick. Then use SuperGrid to build dungeons and castles. Also cobble for courtyards. Strictly architectural for myself. Also if they can be instanced allowing for some easy manipulation.

    The shear amount of stone, brick and rock textures are daunting to say the least. I see what others say before I post any pictures. Thanks for giving us the chance to voice our thoughts.

    @zeOrb - I'd love to see some material packs and would definitely buy them to compliment SuperGrid

    I'm thinking about material packs and how to execute them properly!
    Also, it would help if you clarify a little bit what do you expect from fantasy/sci-fi themed material pack! Of course I have my vision of this stuff, but it would be cool to know what exactly you want to see! =]

    at the first, Supergrid is really good and i love it
    But i have no idea we i can import SuperGrid in my Project, please help and give a Tutorial

    Oh hey!
    I hope my PM was helpful!

    Hm... I don't have access to my project as a Marketplace purchase(Still pending I guess), so I'm not sure why it's happening :/ Probably because it in "CompleteProject" category/tag and you can't add complete project to other projects. I will talk with Marketplace Support about this issue, but for now you could simply Migrate whole SuperGrid folder to Content folder of desirable project

    edit: adding a picture from local computer doesnt work?? anyway, open the stairs mesh and look at the back
    Oh, nasty stairs. I've fixed this and will push it into the first update(ETA 1 week)

    Hey mate,

    As a request from someone from the UT crowd they asked me how to get it to work on the UT editor:

    You need to compile a source editor (UE4 source) and change its engine version to 0

    \Engine\Source\Runtime\Launch\Resources\Version.h
    #define ENGINE_VERSION 0
    #define BUILT_FROM_CHANGELIST 0

    then open each file and re-save it all, then re-submit your data to Epic for them to update on the marketplace.


    This is because the engine version you're using is beyond what UT's currently at and as such is causing UT's engine to be unable to open these blueprints, and an engine version of 0 allows these blueprints to be opened on any editor
    Thank you very much for help, Raxxy!
    I will try to push this fix into next update.

    Hah, nice to hear =D
    I hope you won't be disappointed!

    I'm happy you've enjoyed it!

    So this means, that probably in the next 1 or 2 months there will be an UT-Editor Update with whom this plug-in will work just fine without having to compile the Editor?
    This plug-in looks great and I'd really like to buy it, but I'm only using the UT-Editor, (trying to build a map) -> noobie in 3d programs

    would be glad to hear an answer

    It was a choice by design. Initially I wanted to give them unique UV so they look cool and line up with each other, but with unique UV they did not line up with everything else.
    It's possible to apply tri-planar material to hexagons with world aligned material at the top part and object aligned everything else, but I decide it's too much for single mesh and unnecessary.
    Maybe I'll implement one of this methods later, but currently I want to keep things as simple as possible
    Thanks for feedback!

    Thanks for kind words, it really boosts moral and increase updates development speed xD
    I'll try to deliver more cool stuff!

    Thanks!
    I hope you will enjoy SuperGrid

    You can do it yourself transplanting files around to get the engine version changed (what i said will allow all data to open at all times)
