    Hey everyone!
    Thanks for the add.
    I'm a Christian 3D Character Artist living in Toronto... Just finishing up my Masters of Theological Studies and I've worked in the Games industry for a bit on a few AAA titles, and was wondering if there are any Christian developers around the GTA? I'd love to connect!

    Work in progress video of the sculpting process for my "Old Man" sculpt. I forgot to post this a while back... It was a fun sculpt I did in my spare time - based loosely off a black and white photo I found online of an old guy's face which was just captivating to me. The wrinkles and weathering on his face seemed to really tell a story which I wanted to capture... I did the majority of sculpting all by hand with minimal use of alphas for the effect... enjoy! 🙂 --------------------------------------------------------------- YouTube link to Making of video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNALWzvF0IU Sculpt turnaround: 1080p HD Vimeo version: vimeo.com/165899769 1080p HD YouTube version: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN-oOF7e2Ms Still Renders: www.facebook.com/chindianproductions/photos/ms.c.eJxly8ENACAIBMGODIccQv~_NGV8mx3eyCwOzvDISSYYvfIl...

    Jon CollinsCryengine or lumberyard? Amazon are really taking the bull by the horns on making its own version of cryengine a real viable and very sorted platform, it uses Lua for it's scripting I believe.

    Scott BjerkSpecifically Cryengine 5. I had tried Lumberyard a while back but was less inclined to venture into the unknown at the time I tried it, (I was still just getting used to Unity). (plus it had certain restrictions that I didn't care for if I recall correctly). The latest Cryengine looks beautiful, it's free and is not tied down with any contracts to abide by - as opposed to Unreal's 5% royalty gotcha, so thought I'd see what hurdles there might be, because though I'd like to think its just a matter of settings, I feel that in the end Unity struggles with that AAA look and feel. I'm DL'ing the sample level now - we'll see how it goes to make something happen of it.

    Jon CollinsThe reason i lean towards lumberyard rather than cryengine is several fold which may or may not be a concern for ppl. The internal company policies weren't/aren't great. They've been in financial difficulty for a while. Lumberyard is effectively the new and improved cryengine and as it's owned by Amazon I would assume an American product now. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crytek

    Scott BjerkGood to know. I will likely play through the demo level that I downloaded, (which is fantastic ), take notes from it... how where and why the lighting and reflection spheres... and find my way back to the 'U' of choice (which for me for now is Unity). Maybe in the way 'back' I'll see what other engines are like, Godot seems to be mentioned enough - might give it a go next.

    Michael Samuel Miller JrThe few examples I have found for apps or computer all have something severely lacking in one way or another. I'm apt to agree with you. OR I'll just open a blank layout on my game editor and do it that way so it's still saved in my game but just acts like an unused part of the game.

    When writing up basic enemy or NPC behaviors, what's the scenario you draft? Short of explaining the CODE you write, what CONDITIONS do you write to determine when your character does [this] or [that]?

    For example, I have NPC characters that will basically alternate between random times walking around and sitting at a desk. And then there will be limited conditions which will break from this back-and-forth system when they are alerted to something...but after a time will go back to their walking/sitting behaviors.

    I realize this may not be a very clear question, but I'm trying to gain a better understanding how to develop believable system of AI behavior.

    Doug MosesOne of the simplest ways is to create a sound in .wav format, then go into your character blueprint and add the node Play Sound 2D and reference the imported sound. Here is the API reference for that node. docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/Audio/PlaySound2D/index.html

    Eric DormanDid you try adding a key binding from settings to your sound from the character blueprint? Key bindings are extremely useful in this type of situation.
