UTSDK January 2013 Release

Hey everyone! I can now finally present a new version of the UT Community SDK. After weeks and months of delay I finally got together what I wanted to. The road to success had so many obstacles in especially the last few weeks. One bug was removed another popped up!

But now I can deliver the first release with a testing environment. Yes... no simple framework without any possibility to test things anymore! When you remember the news post back in November 2012 I was still trying to some stuff ... well I think the majority of these features really made it into the release.


  • Bounding Volume Support
  • new Emitter type (SubUV Emitter)
  • improved Interpolation System (supports smooth interpolation of float, vector, rotator and colors)
  • extended Post Processing Support (cross-fade support, new Blend Modes etc.)
  • completely new GUI/menu system!
  • tons of new UnrealED / UnrealScript functions
  • new Static Mesh Features (changeable U/V Settings, dynamic color)
  • updated OpenGL Driver
  • dozens of fixes here and there
  • a lot of new example content and ready-to-use classes (be surprised!)
  • partially revamped weapons
  • Showcase / Test environment

Since this is a huge leap forward, because it's the first release to actively show what can be done, I suggest you make yourself familiar with the possibility to discuss, bug hunt or report about whatever concerns the UTSDK at the forums of!

Looks great) this stuff very impressed me)

Is it possible to use SDK to build and support weapon mods? I'm very interested in this, cozz working now on some things and needed some specific effects that old engine can't provide...

you can use that old engine for whatever you like, the only thing the SDK does is that it is some kind of unofficial patch that gives you more possibilities, that were not possible before with the unreal engine 1

yes concerning that render, and beyond, you have to change some lines in the configuration files, but apart from copying ****, it's the only thing besides that you have to do. which files and how are stated in the setup.pdf file

When I say 227 I mean the community patch for Unreal 1, which it's engine is already superior to UT's engine, but with the features included in this SDK it essentially becomes Unreal engine 1.9 heh

Yes I know precisely what you mean with 227, since Unreal 227 already got a lot new stuff I see no need to port the SDK to Unreal.

And when i release mod, i must told players that they must also have SDK kit because otherwise mod will be unplayable, yes?

What about if when i finish it, SDK will have more later version? Should it cause problems or every future version would contain that each previous had?

It's the same problem as of with the UDK. It gets updated and your codebase and many things change. Epic Games said: "You either stay with one version, or you wait for another version." - Yeah, well. But guys want to develope NOW.

So my suggestions and advices are: backup your current UT directory, make a 2nd one (directory) for testing purposes with the SDK, 3rd when you're a developer or mapper make 2 versions out of a your map/project: one WITH the SDK stuff, one without. This way you'll have your map or project base without risqueing your entire map/project. Since the last version I tried to make things much more comfortable. It was the first versin were developers were able to rebuild the new stuff by a simple click on the "Build All" button. The integration of the new features into UED alone is just trail of 1000 days.

Well, thanks for advices)
If things are like this, I'd better make a mod without SDK patch, but also learning SDK features separately)

Thanks a lot Shad, awesome work))

Yeah nothing to thank for. Well, yes... I'm thankful of course. But you people have to see that it's an unofficial patch. An engine enhancement made by only one person. The SDK gets updated and updated, improves and improves. Everyone is invited to try it out.

Epic Games would be proud. It is too bad it isn't ocmpatible with Unreal Engine 2, and it is also too bad that the Unreal Engines don't stack. Imagine playing the first Unreal with this mod and with Unreal Engine 3.
