Thanks a lot ! Did you give some masterclass of something ?

How is the Clovers sit on top between tiles? for mine, blend modes doesnt seem to be working... they follow the height of the tiles which results in extreme distortion of clovers following the height changes of tiles

SpatialOS GDK for Unreal Engine Available
31 October, 2018

Today, Improbable announces that its new SpatialOS Game Development Kit (GDK) for Unreal Engine is now available to download for free from the Unreal Engine Marketplace. The GDK enables developers using Unreal Engine to create and scale multiplayer online games using the SpatialOS platform.

The SpatialOS GDK for Unreal makes it possible to port and develop games with familiar Unreal Engine workflows, and to seamlessly grow any game in scale and complexity using the power of SpatialOS – all without the need for major changes to the game or engine code.

The GDK works natively with Unreal Engine’s traditional workflows and networking API, making it easier than ever to create ambitious online multiplayer games. Suitable for studios of all sizes, developers can easily port their existing titles and, thanks to SpatialOS’ managed global infrastructure, there’s no need to worry about hosting servers.

“We’re always excited to see new technology that gives developers using Unreal Engine more options,” said Nick Penwarden, Director of Engineering – Unreal Engine, Epic Games. “Now that SpatialOS works natively with our network replication APIs, it will be easier than ever for developers to explore how SpatialOS allows them to scale their game ideas seamlessly across multiple servers.”

Pre-release versions of the SpatialOS GDK for Unreal are already being used by celebrated game developers. Aaryn Flynn, former General Manager of BioWare, used Unreal Engine to build hits like the Mass Effect trilogy. Now, as Improbable’s General Manager, North America, he and his team are using Unreal Engine to build original demonstrative game content highlighting the unique possibilities of SpatialOS.

“Developers want technology to enable their vision and enhance their creativity,” said Flynn. “The new SpatialOS GDK unlocks new possibilities within Unreal Engine, empowering developers to make many game servers work together and act as one in a way that is seamless to players.”

Josh Holmes, the co-founder of Midwinter Entertainment and former Creative Director for the Halo franchise, is leading the creation of “co-opetition” survival shooter Scavengers using Unreal Engine and SpatialOS. Holmes said: “Our goal with Scavengers is to combine elements like map scale, player numbers and the amount and sophistication of AI enemies to create a new kind of game experience. That made Unreal Engine and SpatialOS a natural choice. Midwinter Entertainment has partnered closely with the team at Improbable to inform the development of the SpatialOS GDK for Unreal. The vision for the GDK is to empower developers to create and support any type or size of game world, while maintaining the familiarity and ease of use of the Unreal Engine and its workflows.”

The SpatialOS GDK for Unreal is available from the Unreal Marketplace. SpatialOS is free to try, with a free sandbox allocation for prototypes and experimental deployments.
