Original Post

Just to refresh my UE mapping abilities, I'm going to begin with a somewhat open map without too much sophistication. Mos Eisley from SW has both of those properties :)

I'll use as many SMs as possible in place of bsps to make sure everything renders smoothly and doesn't look too blocky. I've been able to customise existing SMs very nicely so far to bring the Galaxy to KF.

Here's a taster to give an idea of atmosphere and theme.

I'll update this first post as the level progresses.

There'll be an abundance of buildings interlinked by smaller passageways with only be a couple of wider street areas where you'll be able to see from almost one end to the other. I'd like to keep a claustrophobic feel in most areas and a more open feel in others.

Good luck with the map, I'll be sure to test it out when you get a release!

Just testing a few building designs with the aim to construct a row that will allow for interlocking passageways. Some of them are standalone structures and others are joined with piping or masonry. The row on the left shows, from left to right, a granary / small dwelling / shop / adjoining outdoor market / small dwelling / and a tower that sits outside a perimeter fence. I'd like to have another 5 or so unique buildings to limit repetition.

As Mos Eisley is a space port the circular building on the right is a hangar bay with lockable sliding doors at the front and rear to ensure players do have a chance to use their welders and so the zombies can access through two routes. ;)

I'm testing out a few more architectural displays and wanted to get the high density urban dwellings in as they create quite an impact.

And with a little lighting. Lighting is one of my favourite features for the Unreal Engine.

Adding some of the larger architecture and lighting to the main battle area.

The brightness looks a little rough from this image but taking screenshots from within the editor has a habit of doing that. However, the general layout is starting to take shape with the perimeter buildings pretty much in place.

Time to start constructing inwards now and place a couple more lockable rooms.
