About Grimoire: Manastorm with 1 comment by Omniconnection on Nov 20th, 2014

Greetings Wizard-folk! This weeks update has been hijacked by the newly appointed “resident artist- at least until they can find someone better at making pictures person” (Editor’s Note: Not gonna happen). As you saw last week we have been looking into a new Earth ultimate, and I have since been looking into fleshing out its visuals a bit more since the original concept sketch was rather contradictory to the classes dominant aesthetic. This is the current Earth Mage concept.

The magic for each class revolves around a particular shape. For earth that shape is the cube. Applied to the initial concept for the new Earth Ultimate we end up with something more along the lines of this:

The spell is still fairly early on, but it will probably look a little bit like this in 3d:

Further work is required, but I think it will look fairly awesome once its finished. Hmm I wonder what other spells might look like after earth gets his full visual update… Oh? Apparently I’m supposed to get back to work on the maps now… maybe I can show you next time!

I have a (noob) question. I'm in the process of creating my first mod using UE3 and I'm using the game/source code that came with the retail copy of the game (er, that you can get from Epic). But then UDK comes out and I see a lot of people jumping on it.

How am i supposed to determine if I want to continue my project using UE3 code or start working within UDK?

I hope this question makes sense.

You can do pretty much the same thing with both, but it would be a standalone game with udk.
