Chris Albeluhn - UT3 / UDK Physics Tutorial Number 1 This tutorial will go through a simple setup for a physics asset which can be done in both UT3 and UDK. This particular one will be an old medieval street light dangling from a rope which is attached to a wooden support. This will focus only on the rigging and physics construction side of the asset. First we need a model. We need only 4 joints to make this all work. To export these assets, you will need 'Actor X'. the link can be found below. Importing the assets is the same as importing anything else. You will notice that when the 'lamp' is imported, it seems to be transparent. It will then come up with a window giving you different options for your new mesh. The 'UnrealPhaT' window should appear, if it doesn't simply double click on the newly created physics asset. To get a better grasp on this window and all the functions, take a look at Epics forum site located here. 1. Enjoy

Make Something Unreal - Home Adding Characters To UDK tutorial - Unreal Development Kit Game Engine i.e. Enemies and Players dont have the same model, a intermediate tutorial with a video to acompany it as per a request (video does not have a commentary cus i dont have a mic and i cant be arsed to go to the shops and buy one) To fulfill a request for a written version of this, here is a written version of this :P First Of All: I used Uncodex and Notepad ++, if you use a different piece of software thats fine as long as you know how to do the same things that i do. Now Open Up UDK but minimise it (DONT CLOSE IT,or youll be stuck later) So step One i guess: Open up uncodex, make sure your tree is nice and up to date, then look for a class called UTFamilyInfo. Step Two? Step Three. Now Go into your Unreal Frontend and recompile, this is where i make a mistake in the video because i had a spelling mistake :P oops Recompile and then all that testing i promised :P

DungeonDefenseDeveloperBlog Search public documentation: DungeonDefenseDeveloperBlog 日本語訳中国翻译한국어 Interested in the Unreal Engine? Visit the Unreal Technology site. Looking for jobs and company info? Questions about support via UDN? Blog 1: Day One Hey all, These are some exciting times for indie developers. As a long-time Unreal developer, I’ve jumped on this bandwagon, and over the coming months I’m going to be putting together a series of straightforward mini-game demos on the UDK. So without further ado, let’s chow down! When thinking about what kind of game to start with, I noticed that some people seem to be wondering about creating various kinds of third-person games with Unreal, which is an easy thing to do once you know how. Therefore, the first mini-game that I’m going to tackle will be called “Dungeon Defense”, and it will be a semi-topdown (more like ¾ perspective) action/tower-defense hybrid. But that stuff only took a couple hours, so I wasn’t ready to call it a day just yet. - Jeremy Blog 2: Day Three

Free Kid-Friendly Avatar Creators This seemed to be the most popular site that was sent to me. It is hosted by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the New York Zoos and Aquarium. Students can choose their gender, their skin tone, and add eyes, hands, feet and 'backsides' that are all animal parts. To use this as an avatar, students would have to click 'I'm Done' and then save the image to their desktop to use. It is free and does not require a login account. The only downfalls are that you can't link to the image unless you email it to someone, there is no embed code, and the image includes a fairly large background since it's intended as a desktop image. This site allows you to create a personalized avatar for free. that looks like a superhero. Reasonably Clever Lego Avatar You can use this site to create a Lego avatar. The Simpsons Movie Avatar Creator I'm not sure if my district blocks this site, but it's an obvious winner with kids! You can then get a link to the image and an embed code. Ruth Cohenson (@tearoof)
