The Unreal Tournament SDK is a collection of hardcoded Engine Enhancements for Unreal Tournament that aim to update that wonderful old game so that both gamers and level designers/mod developers may enjoy this fine game just a bit longer. It is completely Open Source, free for noncommercial use. While I know that Unreal Engine 4 is the current state of the art incarnation of the Unreal Engine this project has become a more or less private project just for fun. After a 4 year break (coding nothing since 2014) I'm lookng forward to continue the project and release the next update in 2018. So yes... it's active again, after I had a time of hardship these last years.

So finally here it is. The next new and fresh release of the Unreal Tournament Community SDK. This month's release comes with a huge update for the Material System adding new Materials like TexRotators and TexEnvMaps! On the other hand I implemented a lot of the C++ rendering functionality on Unreal Script Level (native functions) and finally added full Quaternion Support.

UTSDK February 2012 Beta Release


This month's release comes with a huge update for the Material System adding new Materials like TexRotators and TexEnvMaps! On the other hand I implemented a lot of the C++ rendering functionality on Unreal Script Level (native functions) and finally added full Quaternion Support.

More good news: I reimplemented Projectors and optimized them and fixed some rendering bugs concerning the new Blending Styles. There're also finally 2 read-to-use Example Packages (sdkSandbox and sdkSandboxMaterials) showing example content including Materials, Static Meshes, Projectors and Emitters.






New Features

  • added: new Sprite Class "sdkQuad" - a Sprite with free rotation and no camera alignment
  • added: new Texture/Sprite Rendering Functions
    • DrawRotatedTile (a freely rotatable Texture Quad without camera alignment)
    • DrawBeamTile (specialized function for drawing texture beams and sparks
  • added: new Material Classes and Texture Modifiers
    • TexEnvMap
    • TexSphereMap
    • TexPanner / TexEmissivePanner
    • TexRotator / TexEmissiveRotator
    • TexScaler / TexEmissiveScaler
    • TexOscillator / TexEmissiveOscillator
    • Emissive Material
    • TexCombiner
  • added: new Package "sdkSandbox" and "sdkSandboxMaterials"with Tutorial, Test, Example Contents and Classes
    • ready-to-use Classes
    • Example Emitters and Particle Systems
    • Example Projectors
    • Example Materials
    • Example Static Meshes
  • added: new Datatypes (C++ and Unreal Script)
    • ColorRange, a randomized color value
    • FloatRotator, a floating point rotator
    • Vector2DRel, a 2D vector with a relative scaler
  • added: new Iterator Functions
    • CollidingActors - iterates through all colliding Actors (visible or not visible)
    • AllObjects - iterates through all objects in a level
  • added: new Primitive/Sprite Rendering Functions (Unreal Script)
    • Draw3DArrow
    • Draw3DPlane
    • Draw3DFrustum
    • Draw3DBox
    • Draw3DSprite
    • Draw3DCorona
  • added: Full Quaternion Support
    • uses FPlane struct, but operations inside functions equals real Quaternions
    • globally supported on Unreal Script Level
    • globally supported on C++ Level
  • added: new Canvas Functions
    • DrawTile2 (like DrawTile, but supports new Blending)
    • DrawRotatedTile (draws a spinning texture tile)
  • added: new Color Functions
    • ColorLerp, smooth linear Color Interpolation
    • ColorSmerp, smooth non-linear Color Interpolation
    • VectorToRGB, RGBToVector - conversion between vector and color (in 0.0/1.0 range)
  • added: LightColor Sprite Preview for sdkLight



Fixes/Updates

  • updated: recoded and updated Material/Texture System
  • updated: completely recoded Texture Projectors, merged Decal / Plane Projectors into one Class
    • supports new Texture Blendings (introduced Build 335)
    • U/V Scaling
    • U/V Tiling
    • Dynamic Color
    • Projection Fading
    • Projector→ DynamicProjector → DistanceProjector → ShadowProjector
  • updated: all Texture drawing Canvas functions have been updated to support new Blending Styles
  • updated: moved all Iterator Functions from sdkLevelInfo to sdkActor, static functions now
  • updated: moved all Color Functions from sdkCanvas to sdkActor
  • fixed: Render Bug when changing new Blending Styles (BSP changed blending too)
  • fixed: incorrect native function IDs in sdkActor.uc
  • fixed: internally corrected HLS to RGB color conversion (lensflares, coronas, lights, canvas)
