The written tutorials below are a good refresher once your watched the video tutorials above (focus, especially, on the “Level Designer Quick Start” and “Artist Quick Start” sections):
In addition to the overall course assessment criteria students will be assessed on the
level and extent to which they engage with the criteria listed below:
Human Made Elements: Are the human made elements of the site accurately modelled?
Landform: Is the landform of the site accurately modelled?
Quantitative Parameters: Does the documentation of the students research describe a series of distinctive and significant quantitative parameters?
Particle System: Are those parameters represented rigorously using the UE4 particle system?
