UDK or UE Tutorials?

Postby vitinho444 » Sun Oct 12, 2014 9:17 am

Hey guys, I'm currently thinking on switching to UDK/UE from UNITY. I'm tired of Unity because it's very limited visually.
Do you know any tutorials to get one started using UDK/UE ? I really need it because I've been using Unity for the past 2 years and I'm so deep in it that It's hard to learn from scratch others.

Thanks

Check out Buzz tutorials. Not sure if the UDk ones are free but they have a lot of free ones.

Buzz has some great videos, and quite a few of them are free. The problem is they never date anything, so you have no idea how old a video is until you start watching it. Some of their Unity stuff is really great, but it's 2-3 years old and things have changed. I wish they'd put dates on their video descriptions :)

Still, I've learned tons over there. I became a Member Sponsor several years ago when they started their MMO class. It's a little pricey, but a really good video series can save a lot of time in learning something.

I just wish they'd allow you to download the videos instead of streaming them. They have put so much effort into keeping people from ripping off their videos that a lot of times, the video player crashes or stutters a lot. I'd like to be able to download them so I could use a better player to watch/pause/rewind/etc.

As an example, here is a 25 part series on making a Top-down game in UDK:

http://www.3dbuzz.com/training/view/unr ... -down-game

Over 3 hours of videos. But it's narrated by Zak, who I know left 3 years ago, so it's at least that old, maybe even older. Don't know if that would be helpful with today's UDK or not.

Since you have used Unity a lot like myself, how are you finding UDK? Is it easier to work with? Harder? Just different?

Yeah i watched some Unity tutorials on 3dbuzz but totally forgot they had UDK.

I think I will follow that, because I'm really looking for knowing how to make a complete game since I know 0 of UDK ways of development.

About your question of the moving, It's not being easy I must say. Unity is more user-friendly and noob-friendly, and UDK is more of the "AAA" engine you are just lucky enough you can play with it. Of course the quality of games made with the UDK demand for it to be less noob/user friendly.
On other hand I think Unity is good on the development of scripts for game logic. You basically have GameObjects and you can put your scripts (C# or Javascript) in them to make them behave, for what I've seen of UDK, there's something called blueprints and Unreal script and something about actors :lol:

But if you are thinking about the future I would just say, go for it, go for UDK. You make a flappy bird on Unity and it's a "meh game", you make it on UDK and everyone will cheer for you, at least I would.

Let's see what I have to say after I finished that top down shooter :)

Yeah I've come across the official ones, but I'm more into first going through a full game, so I can know every part of the game creation and not general stuff you know? I'll watch the top down for now, but thanks :)
