Importing Static Meshes There are many tools within UE4 that can help you create assets for your levels. However, there may come a time where you have to create an asset in an exterior application and import it into UE4. In this How-to, we will go over the basics on how to import a Static Mesh that was made in another 3D application into UE4 so that it may be used in your levels. Set Up If you are creating a level in UE4, chances are that you have made some 3D models in another application and now you are ready to put that model into UE4.
The 107 Best Songs Of 2015 To conquer pop, making friends in public is a proven strategy. Drake—the facilitator of co-signs, the director of movies, the manufacturer of memes—knows this, and Taylor Swift does too. Diplo was not the first person to use alliances to make his own brand stronger, but he’s certainly been loyal to that model for a long time—from his early collaborations with M.I.A., to his rotating-cast reggae project Major Lazer, to Jack Ü, a recent partnership with Skrillex. For their debut album, released as a surprise in February, Diplo and Skrillex recruited a wide range of vocalists (Kiesza, Bunji Garlin) including Justin Bieber, the singer who was then doing time in satisfying R&B purgatory, awaiting his chance to make a big public apology.
Building Unreal Paris I first discovered the 3D world through the Hammer map editor that I used mostly for fun. I then joined a 3D school focused on architectural visualization for two years. I continued to train myself on realtime technologies and got hired by the studio Arkane as Level-Architect to work on Dishonored (powered by the Unreal Engine 3). A year later, I left the gaming industry to come back to architectural creations, and level design got back to its place: my hobby. I created the Unreal Paris project because I wanted to combine the knowledge accumulated in these two branches of the computer graphics industry to produce an architectural interactive experience that would appeal to me and my friends!
Konbini's official 2015 soundtrack in 100 tracks 364 days have passed since January 1 2015, providing us with some thousands of hours to fill our ears. With that in mind, it’s no easy task to select the best tracks of the past year; this becomes almost impossible when you have tastes as eclectic as the Konbini team. Instead of claiming to gather a universal top 100, we’ve simply selected the 100 tunes that have accompanied us through the year: ones that we’ve listened to walking, dancing, cooking and for sexy time. It’s a subjective list, not an exhaustive one, and we hope it will inspire. There’s a bit of everything in this soundtrack from unmissable hits to musical offerings from lesser-known groups.

Chocolate Tree Books: Book List Relativity theory is usually considered to consist of two main parts: a restricted theory that assumes flat spacetime ("special relativity"), and a more ambitious model (Einstein's "general theory of relativity") that allows curved spacetime. The general theory is assumed to reduce to the "special" theory over small regions of spacetime. However, towards the end of his life, Einstein seemed to have lost confidence in this two-stage approach, and appeared to be presenting the adoption of special relativity as a historical fluke, and suggesting that he no longer believed that it was valid to model physics in the absence of curvature "" (Scientific American, April 1950). Adopting a ground-up approach, the book makes heavy use of illustrations to explain some basic principles of relativity theory, and also has chapters on black holes, wormholes, cosmology and warp drive theory.
