Landscape Effects

Hi folks we thought we'd like to share some new images that show our latest map that has the new lighting effect applied which brings out the landscape in more detail.

Also we've included some images of the Rorkes Drift map after a similar effect was applied.

Mbilini Cattle Skirmish

The following images have been been taken from our new map that is based on the death of Prince Mbilini who was fatally wounded after a skirmish with the British after they surprised him and his warriors whilst attempting to steal cattle.

Hippos at the watering hole

Free SDK for a beautiful, diverse and insanely powerful engine. UE3 and UDK is here to stay.

Beatiful engine with beautiful games. I used to think source was great, but this engine just has so many features and modern conviences. I'm still learning the basics myself- the learning curve is vertical and some tutorials are a tad confusing, but for the most part it's great.
Thank you Epic Games, without you I wouldn't have games like Gears of War and without your engine I wouldn't have BioShock.

The thing I like best about this engine is that it has a built-in compiler, which saves me a lot of hassle. :)
