Personally I'd approach the texturing a different way. Instead of a large diffuse/normal map I would have a large normal map, and have a 1024X1024 diffuse/normal tiling 'underneath' it. That way you get large, unique detail from the normal map generated from sculpting, but also the detail from a tiling rock texture. You should be able to add unique detail using decals.

you could always do that in UDK, but you would lose your AO

Does UDK simulate AO when you compile light?

to an extent, based on the size of your lightmaps you get better 'baked' lighting, but you can save on lightmaps and get better results by using your AO map

You could use the full scale AO, too - just combine it with the tiling rock diffuse using a multiply.

I remember referencing this tutorial a few times to create my cave rocks asset for the unity store here tinyurl.com(forward slash)mvz89lj or here tinyurl.com(forward slash)kcy7jra

I included the FBX models in the kit so even though you buy it from the unity asset store all my models and textures can easily be used for UDK!
