Unreal Engine 4

Post  GraysonB on Sat Jun 21, 2014 6:41 pm

Hello together, its been i long time since i visited this forum. Since then, Unreal Engine changed alot. There was the UDK, and now the Unreal Engine 4 .

For myself, i am now close to be a real game developer (indie). The time i joined this forum and the CBS sniper server, me and Xandrea lived together for a time and developed some stuff in the Unreal Engine 3.Now i am working with the Unreal Engine 4, and i have to say its great to work with it.

But lets get started about all the other news that are more important.
The Unreal Engine 4 was released this year, for 20 Dollar subscription fee in a month. You get the full source code and a new editor. The Unreal Editor is now completely different, but from what i can say, it is much easier to work with and i have worked with the Unreal Editor since Unreal Tournament 99.

https://www.unrealengine.com/faq#billing

The first time i heard about a fee was disappointing for me, since the UDK was "free". But its only a subscription, you can cancel it.

Aaaaaand now to the most interesting part !

Unreal Tournament 4 is in development BY THE COMMUNITY !

I am writing this up, because there might be alot of interested people around here on this forum, to make a new sniper mode. Perhaps the CBS Sniper Server Arena UE4 ? I remember Andrea and i found the CBS server- it was very much fun to play (especially for her).
I would love to convert old maps to the new Unreal Engine 4 and that the CBS Sniper Mode would advance with the Unreal Tournament Series. And just to think about it, the release of Unreal Tournament 4 will get new player to the CBS server as well. So if the maps are re polished, converted to the new U Tournament and it will be there when Unreal Tournament hits the final stage, this could be interesting.

News for Mappers (good and bad ones)

Kismet and Uscript is not longer in the Unreal Engine 4 . It is replaced by C++ and Blueprint.
The good thing about Blueprint is, it is scripting , it is visual scripting and it is more than kismet can do. You can actually build a whole new unreal tournament, entirely out of blueprint functions. And Epic games did a lot to help the new developers, its so good documented and there are many samples available.

Just let me know what you think.

While this video needs a good Hardware setup, yes this is possible in realtime. Smile
The Unreal Elemental demo is another good example. But my computer, running 60 fps in Unreal Tournament 3
can not handle it with full frames, just with 15 -20 Fps. But, to be fair, this are more like Cinema cutscenes

Hm. The Unreal series, not at the moment. But the Unreal Tournament Series will be made - with the community Smile
If you google up Unreal Tournament Forum, it should be the first topic. So as i said, i would love to develop the CBS sniper mode to Unreal Engine 4. With the new shading system, i can only imagine how easy mapping will be and how nice it could look especially the over sized rooms.
Think about it, the new shading system is physical based lighting, this means you just have to know what material you want to build or to visualize and it looks as it should. You do not need to create difficult textures if you do not want it. Perhaps a little grime or ambientocclusion but it can look good without it too.  

The main question is, is the sniper mode itself a game or did everyone joined the forum because of UT3 ? If it is a game itself and people would join without a Unreal Tournament game we could make a complete own game. Thats something i would be interested. At least, it isn´t very difficult.

So are you interested to advance the CBS Sniper mode to Unreal Engine 4 ? How should it be ? With the new Unreal Tournament Series, or standalone/hybrid ?

*Edit: Oh and not to forget the Rocket Arena mode ! *

Mathes

I downloaded the Unreal Elemental demo, after starting the demo it was missing the file msvcr120.dll which is necessary to run programmes created with MS Visual C++ 2013, I got it from Microsoft, then the demo run with 20 fps in maximum with my GTX660. I couldn't quit the demo with ESC but had to use the TaskManager to kill the process. A second run of the demo was missing the sound => very buggy => be careful not to crash your machine.

Warum denn das ? xD

I now have an Unreal Engine 4 License. This is my first try on building a Room :

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B8Kq9XFiF6gxOHRzb2lzdzNUeHc&usp=sharing



So it would be quite interesting to build an own sniper game based on the CBS Sniper Mod for UT3. Unfortunately, i have a lot to do. I use the Unreal Engine 4 for industry visualization and game development.  
But as i said, if you are really interested in this it might be a nice test to develop it just for fun.

Greetings,

Grayson

Very Happy It is based on a Ikea scene i found on the internet.
I have 100 FPS on my rig :

AMD Phenom 2 940 3GHz (64 bit)
8GB Ram
560 Gtx ti

So this is playable without a new expensive computer setup at the moment.

Hi Grayson, i "bought" it too but i did not play with it as much, you did a great first job !

unfortunately Unreal engine 4 will be to make maps incompatible with UT3 but maybe Unreal Tournament 2014 is for soon and cheap, we will see

@Laecatara that isn´t so wrong, since my Pc is surely getting old. I mean yeah he can run most of the things i need, but i need more FPS too. So i will built a new system too , soon.
That is even a great thing because everything that works smooth on my machine should be even better on newer systems.

@Alligators427, Unreal Tournament 4 will be free and its a community build project, so even the CBS sniper Game mode can actually become a part in Unreal Tournament 4.
But as i said, if we have own ideas for an interesting First person shooter, we could make a complete game. For me, it doesn´t need to be commercial driven, or pay to win or
a big project, it can be a small, free game just for fun. Small soldier sniper game or so.

I am currently working on similar code snippets. So perhaps i can package a Game for a test run soon. But i won´t promise it - there is a lot work left on my desk.

So i guess the Female Metal Gear Solid 5 sniper model might fit you more ?





After you know one headshot can kill you instantly, ballistic protection seems to be unimportant. On the other hand, this might lead to a heavy sunburn

Hey guys.

Are you alive? Does anyone have plans for making a Sniper Server in UT4?
I'm only a player, so i can't help you with making it but just wanted to say, that it would be great if you would make it.
There are already some giant maps made that would be perfect for the kind of sniper server you did in UT3.

It's all I wanted to say. I really loved playing snipers in UT3. My brother (kupeczka) also said that your sniper server is the only server he would play in UT4.
Hope to see you in game! Very Happy
