Game Development and Simulation with Unreal Technology explores the use of Unreal Engine 4 UE4 for the development of real-time digital interactive contents to be used in computerized games or simulations. The engine is considered in three main iterations: from the basic use of the engine to build games and simulation content out of the box, to intermediate design of interactive content by building on the pre-supplied contents from the base engine, and through advanced implementations geared toward a comprehensive understanding of the power of the Unreal Engine. This is one of the first books on developing interactive content for games, entertainment, and simulation to cover the newly released UE4. Industry-level game concepts in level design, coding, and programming, networking, and multiplayer concepts are covered. The book presents beginner-through advanced-level concepts in designing and developing games with the Unreal Engine 4. The book is organized into three parts.
Boolean Switch Now that we have a switch, we can setup a simple blueprint to control it. By creating an event or function , we can branch using a Boolean switch between simulating the cloth LOD 0 and not simulating the cloth LOD 1.
This event could be called on a trigger entered to begin simulating the cloth meshes in the next area, and again when the player leaves that area to stop those simulations, or any number of methods, depending on the game level.
Figure 3. Switch blueprint. Occlusion Culling Switch If a more automated approach is desired, Occlusion Culling can be used as the switching variable. This will stop the cloth simulation when the actor is no longer rendered.
Figure 4. The problem with this method comes from the simulation reset that occurs when the simulation is switched back on. If the cloth mesh is drastically different when it is simulated, the player will always see this transition.
To mitigate the chance of this happening, the bounds of the mesh can be increased with import settings. A level design approach to solving this issue would include making sure all dynamically capable cloth meshes such as flags are placed in the same direction as the wind. That could be a very taxing method, depending on the data structure used and the amount of cloth simulations in the level.
Cloth Simulations without Occlusion Culling switch. Figure 6. Cloth Simulations with Occlusion Culling switch. Figure 7. Set Piece switch. Using a Set Piece Switch In figure 8 below, three cloth meshes are flags that turn away and point backwards, relative to their starting position.
It takes a few seconds for this to look natural, but because they really sell the fact that they are not hand animated, I set them to be Set Pieces Optimize Cloth?

Paperback Verified download. Been following along with this book for a while and it's easily the best of all of the Unreal books I've bought so far. While it's currently behind in terms of which version the author is using, the website it gives offers all of the updated information for free.
It's written very well to where you get lots of information without feeling either overloaded or like you're being taught like you're stupid I've noticed lots of books like this act like you've never touched a computer. Very easy to understand. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone looking to get in to Unreal development.
Kindle Edition Verified download. A very good introduction to UE4.
There are have been some major changes in everything from the layout of the editor to the tools themselves particles, cinematics, etc. This book explains the new functionality in some detail. It also walks the reader through the step by step creation of two basic games, and covers all of the bases level design, lighting, meshes, etc. Overall a very good introduction for both newbies and intermediate devs alike Doesn't go into code at all and far more basic than I thought the book would be, but it has a great material editor section and if you are only working with blueprints can get you up and familiar with the basics pretty quickly.
With a few video tutorials this manual makes it so I can visualize UE4 material editor without being at the computer, the teachings are accessible without being at the computer, it's that well written. Required for college. It should not cost 55 dollars!! There are quite a lot of errors in terminology and names, though the book's website does list correct changes to the first two chapters I've only read up to Chapter 2 - if there are errors in Chapter 3, the book's site doesn't list those for some reason, only for the first two chapters.
I thought it would be the latest and greatest, and it should have covered Unreal Engine 4. On the other hand, with these mistakes, it sounds crazy, but maybe you'll learn how to use the Unreal Engine better since you have to go digging through the editor to find what the book is talking about sometimes Make sure you are familiar with the interface.
For example, this book won't explain simple commands such as how to pan around the viewport or tell you to select the BSP panel in Place Mode so you can see the geometry rollout in the Details panel chapter, 2, page 37 of the Kindle edition or that "Scene Outliner" is now called "World Outliner" chapter, 2, page 38 of the Kindle edition and the book's website doesn't explain that, either. One last thing - in Chapter 2, the author tells you to size a floor by scaling which doesn't mention scaling at all, just that you need to input numbers into X, Y and Z in the Details Panel the floor to X, Y, and 20 Z.
It's ridiculous - it makes trying to zoom in to the level completely impossible as you hold the left mouse button or wheel mouse button down to zoom in and out - it just takes forever to move through the viewport.
This really isn't much of a complaint because the values can be adjusted, but still It's insane. If you can look past the errors and engine version number, then go for it!
I'm still going to read the whole thing, and I'm learning the engine, at least. I rated it two stars because of the errors and misprints, which can become tedious and frustrating. But it's not one star, because you can still learn the Unreal Engine from it - just be prepared for a lot of looking around in the editor to find what you need.
On the site UK site, there is a review from someone named Wang. He has it right:
