Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Where to Get Started with Unreal Engine 4.10?

Hello, I have been modelling in Blender for a month or so just so I can create meshes for my UE4 game. I have been using Unreal Engine for 3 months or so and I couldn't really find any tutorials on how to make a game using blueprints. I have made so far a rotating door and I have a little knowledge of blueprints. I have read the documentation and done a few tutorials that are in the engine. What would you suggest I do from here? Has anyone got any books or youtube tutorials (free or paid) that I can take a look at? I would also like to find out how to make a curtain in Blender. I) have looked at some youtube tutorials but most are fairly outdated.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hi and welcome...

I would suggest that you run through the massive tutorial list on the UNREAL YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gY35ezlSQn1sWOGfh4C7ewO -- this is a great start to get you into Blueprints. Also, do spend some time in the documentation which can be reached under LEARN in the menu above. Its quite good.

Also, do a YOUTUBE search for UNREAL blueprint tutorials, there is a ton. For the most part, blueprint tutorials should be OK from older versions, but do try to stay recent... like 4.8 and higher. Finally, books are OK, but get out dated quickly.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the answer teak421 but most of those blueprint tutorials don't show you how to make a game. They just show you fun things you can do with blueprints.

I got one for you: https://goo.gl/GF8N2x and https://goo.gl/bwbI0G

Both are in progress... but... it should help a ton. First is a 1st / 3rd person and the other is a tower defense game. Also, if you have the cash, check out the BP's on marketplace, great tool for learning...
