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"

Minecraft Random Voxel style generation

Hello All

I'm looking for a nice, updated tutorial or at least a guideline on how to get started with a Minecraft style world generation, All I need is the ability to edit individual blocks in the terrain and actually generate a blocky style terrain that's infinite and smoothly generated.

If anybody could point me to a tutorial or at least give me a starting area I would appreciate it

Thanks in advance

Product Version: UE 4.18

Making a voxel game is a relatively complicated process, and the knowledge needed to create one is not engine-specific. There're several good tutorials, but none of them talk about the marching cube algorithm, which is responsible for smoothing the terrain. So, you might have to study each part individually and combine them into an intact binary.

https://sites.google.com/site/letsmakeavoxelengine/ This tutorial is written in a general form, so you have to get familiar with OpenGL to understand it.
