I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
‘Over 9000 Swords’ by Broad Strokes is a modular weapon system that was written completely in Blueprints and allows you to quickly and efficiently add a variety of swords in your game with Unreal Engine 4. Download it here!
Lee Devonald and Jan Kaluza (sorry for missing out Jan!) are the creators of this package. With this technology you can make up to 13,552 different unique swords with the meshes provided with its 44 different components that are split over four categories. The package was designed to let you easily add even more customized swords with extra sword parts or your own unique weapon types and components.
It also comes with an easy-to-use material preset management that allows you to create many variations of color, metallic value, roughness, or emissive power. Along with this you’ll find selective randomization features and full networking support that is included, plus a demo level that comes with tutorials and examples of how to use the package in your game.
There’s even a crafting station with a simple and easy to use user interface as an implementation example that you can use as-is, or rework to fit your game.
