Hi Hourences, just bought and downloaded the eat3d Unreal Development Kit - An Introduction and Application the other week. It is really helpful at explaining the basics and more fun than going through the UDN tutorials. Will definitely be buying Unreal Development Kit 2 - Creating Cinematics & Environmental Effects soon enough. Probably after the unrealscript and kismet downloads. Thanks for everything so far.

About the book:

The book covers both the visual and artistic side as well as the gameplay aspect of level design. Don’t expect any technical how-to tutorials in this book, this book is about the "why". Rather than writing yet another tutorial/book about how to create a virtual room this book is about how to make that room look cool and play well. Expect tips and techniques as well as explanations of the logic and reasoning behind art and design decisions. How does the gameplay in a level work? What’s the reason this kind of architecture gives this kind of feeling or looks better in situation A or B? Why does this color combination work so well? What kind of floorplan can I best use to improve gameplay and why? What type of sound setup should I use?

It targets the mod communities of action games such as the HL,UT and Quake communities and it aims to help them with the gameplay and visual design of their levels/virtual worlds. The book will go on sale in a printed and digital PDF edition and is entirely self published and thus only available online.
More info can be found on Book.Hourences.com
