Great! I'll be using these thanks a lot!
For using fractures is there a way to put materials on the broken pieces? I notice when they get broken off there is the default material on them.

Could you do a tutorial on Materials maybe. Like on how to make them and stuff. It would help a lot.

Raven, i really appreciate what you are doing, it is a great work indeed, could you please post the videos on vimeo too? i think the quality is a lot better there, and will get your material more valor.

Also, i dont know if you know this, but there are some good video (few) in the udn too. Maybe you could post yours there too.

Can you not see an "Edit" link on your first post? If you can see it, what happens when you click?

PS: I've edited your first post in this case to include the links to the last two tutorials you've posted. ;)

Thats some valuable information you're bringing to people Raven, good work and keep it up!

It seems a lot of people on the UDK forums are having trouble with custom characters. If you did one on a section of that topic i'm sure it'd be very popular.

It's a full program. If you've already installed Beta 1 you're advised to uninstall it and then install beta 2. So, No... Beta 2 is not a patch. ;)

Hey guys sorry for the delay on my reply. I haven't been here much this week. However I am back so expect at least 1 tutorial from me. So my new tutorial for today is Physx Destructables in the UDK.

@Orion
I dunno why I couldn't edit my original post the other day I was having problems but all is well again :).

@Lonewolf959
I haven't tried this with another programmer. But I will try it with Blender 3d and see if it works that way.

Thank you so much for these tutorials, I was thinking of switching from source to udk and with these tutorials I might make udk my primary engine.
