The Solus Project: Level Introduction
The Solus Project: Level Introduction is a complete and highly detailed training video, that aims to get you up to speed in level building for Unreal Engine 4.
Using the modular and easy to use modular environment assets from Solus, this video introduces you to everything you need to know to build basic environments in Unreal Engine 4. Besides covering how to build environments using modular meshes, the video also goes over how to create a landscape, apply foliage, how to best apply the UE4 reflection system, lighting and its performance considerations, and how to keep track and organize your levels.
In the video you will be building a small Solus level. The level has both an indoor and an outdoor section. The architecture has been set up in such way that it allows for a lot of copy pasting, and a lot of freedom in what/how meshes are placed, in order to make to the video suitable for beginners.
The video comes with some of the actual content from Solus. A few dozen of our modular building and environment meshes, a number of our textures, materials, and particles. Some of the tiling environment textures are from GameTextures.com, and thereby also give you a free sample of the service they offer.
