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!

UTSDK November Beta Preview 18 (Final Map Shots) UTSDK November Beta Preview 17 (Final Map Shots)

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!

The transparent detail textures require placeing a sheet one
UU over a surface what not seldom causes bsp holes - so if
there were additional style checkboxes or even also display
option for decorations ect. = great!

Have you ever taken a look at the Materials (new Texture Classes) of the SDK? They allow to render complex Material Textures with different Blending. However, changing the blending of the detail texture would be a good additional option.

I think the darklight (subtract light(Undying, Rune, Unreal 227i)) will be better then projector for actor shadow. Because projector not show on floor and wall both. Darklight show good, but must be dynamic and event with nearestlight and actor..:)

Sorry for being a lazy 'tard... but have question that probably already answered..again sorry
What can this sdk be used for?
UT99 original or UT3 that look like UT99?
In other words can maps be made and played on UT99 servers?
Miss that game terribly and always hoped for an engine overhaul.

It's for original UT99. You take this SDK and it's improvements and build (probably) better maps and stuff - depends on what you actually use. And yes it can be proclamed as engine overhaul.

How about current UT99 maps?
Can they be ported..or modified..or is this from scratch..?

UT99_Shadow Jan 4 2013, 6:22am replied:

Mostly from scratch. It's not that you install the SDK and your old UT99 looks like Unreal Tournament 4 instantaneously. You have to add the new things in your map(s) by yourself. Some stuff can be changed with mutators though (weapons, items, effects).

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.
