This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!

Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.

Tutorial: Recreating Thief’s Stealth Mechanics in UE4
16 August, 2017

Tom Looman has started a new tutorial series where he is trying to recreate one of Thief’s main stealth mechanics, hiding from AI in the shadows, in Unreal Engine 4. The basic principle here is to check if a player is visible to any light and make AI respond to this simple check. The first part focuses on implementing the technique for Point Lights.

Basically, it’s a C++ video tutorial where the developer quickly goes through the basics of having a player being hidden or exposed to the lights in a scene. The trick here is to make sure that AI responds differently to several scenarios. 

Stay tuned for the next parts to find out how you can implement other light types and create AI to respond to this mechanic.
