Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Edge of Eternity Environment
This video by YouTube user jhon117x shows a day and night cycle of the environment he was working on for Midgar Studio. He made some of the assests for this video, but the landscape, rocks, music and programming were made by Midgar Studio. The shown footage is from the video game Edge of Eternity.
