In this DVD Rusty Sempsrott dives into the world of UnrealScript. He starts off with the very basics by going over getting set-up, variables, arrays, enumeration, structures, if statements, case statements, loops, functions, and classes. Once the basics are covered in detail, Rusty then demonstrates some practical uses of UnrealScript like creating custom Kismet functionality and creating a custom weapon class. You will be able to create very different and unique results with only a small amount of new code to write, leaving you with more time to design and implement your ideas.

Digital Tutors – Creating Game Weapons in Maya and ZBrush

Digital Tutors – Creating Game Weapons in Maya and ZBrush
English | Size: 799 MB
Category: Tutorial


In this course we will use a Maya to ZBrush workflow to build and texture a detailed battle hammer.
When working with digital assets, the ability of your computer to manipulate those assets is limited, especially when dealing with very high resolution meshes. For this reason, we use things like normal maps to simulate the high resolution detail in a way that we can more easily use. In this course, we’ll use a weathered battle hammer as an example to illustrate some of the ways you can use Maya and ZBrush together to build and sculpt high resolution props and set pieces and create useable assets. After building the base geometry and laying out UVs in Maya, we’ll go through the process of sculpting and texturing the hammer in ZBrush. We’ll finish up by applying all of that detail back in Maya to create a high quality, useable prop.

For twenty-five years Dan Lyons was a leading tech journalist-until the Friday his Newsweek boss called. His job? Gone. Fifty years old with two young kids, Lyons was, in a word, screwed. Then an idea hit. For years he’d seen people strike gold in the start-up boom. Why not him? One tech company, flush with $100 million, offered a pile of stock options. What could go wrong?His new employer made the world a better place…by selling email spam. The office vibe was frat house meets cult compound: shower pods became hook-up dens; Nerf gun fights broke out at lunch; and absent bosses specialized in cryptic, jargon-filled emails. In the middle of this sat Lyons, old enough to be his coworkers’ father.With portraits of devilish angel investors, fad-chasing venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and wantrapreneurs, bloggers and brogrammers, Disrupted is a hilarious story of self-reinvention and a definitive account of life in the tech bubble.
