    I can't find that sweet spot with my air-conditioning. Sometimes it's almost too cold!

    It's taking me too long to find a tutorial that shows me how to create/import a player icon into my Unreal scene. Grrr! What a pain. Think I'll take a break and get some more coffee.

    No, I am learning the game engine in order to create VR content.

    My background is 'old school' I guess 3D, aimed at long form projects (film/video). Unreal is one of the best programs for consolidating assets into a VR experience, so I'm now becoming familiar with that style of production. Things that are still 3D, but more immersive and with open ended stories and experiences.

    It's pretty amazing when done right. Eventually I'll be looking for work in the field, right now just exploring it.

    Funny I played Unreal Tournament when it came out. When you download the Unreal engine it comes with it. It's still being supported and played! Well, a few folks ha ha. You should download and join. (I'm Paper Alligator) It's looking pretty good. Especially on my new laptop with its 1070 card. Head shot!

    texture/lighting tests in Maya, final project will appear different. It will be a kind of museum room floating in space highlighting various modeling project created by me and others. There will be ships and such outside, and a docked Federation ship of some kind you will be able to 'beam' into. MUCH work to do.

    Fun.

    I'm running out of space for guitar cases. They're really cluttering up my attic.

    I'm running out of wall space for guitar hangers.

    It's the latest, have not found the version.

    You should be able to... (just a minute... just a minute*)...I just started Unreal while I was reading and it wouldn't me continue without an update! ha. It only took a few seconds.

    This is my Unreal screen:

    If it's not the latest version, it usually just asks me if I want to do the upgrade.
