「Unreal Development Kit」が大幅アップデート,Scaleform GFxやSteamworksへの対応でパワーアップ

 Epic Gamesが無償で提供しているUnreal Engine用開発キット「Unreal Development Kit」(UDK)の最新版May 2010 UDK Betaがリリースされ,公式サイトで公開されている。
 最新バージョンでは,未来的なものから,ストラテジーゲームなどで使われる古典的なものまで応用の利くユーザーインタフェース専用ミドルウェア「Scaleform GFx」や,Steamを使ったオンラインサポートやマッチメイキングなどを可能にする「Steamworks」などが含まれているほか,エディタ,レンダラー,パーティクル効果,アニメーションなどでの幅広い改善が行われている。

 UDKは,Epic Gamesがゲーム開発会社にライセンスするUnreal Engine 3.0の無償版で,一部の機能は制限されているものの,資金や開発環境に乏しい独立系開発会社や,学術機関などへの対応を念頭に,無料で公開されているものだ。商業目的で使用しない限りはライセンス料は発生しないとあって,このUDKを使ってUnreal Engineに慣れ親しんだり,建築や自然科学分野などでの視覚表現に使用したりといったプロジェクトにも利用されている。もちろん,商業利用したい場合は開発後にEpic Gamesの提示するプランに従ってライセンス料を支払うことも可能だ。
 昨年11月に公開されて以来,UDKの日本語ローカライズも進んでおり,今回はインストーラ部も日本語化され,日本市場へのさらなる浸透も予想される。

Exponential Height Fog

  • New kind of global fog with density that decreases with height
  • Never creates a hard line (unlike standard fog); supports one layer
  • Can specify both "towards the light" and "away from the light" colors
  • Rendering cost similar to two layers of constant density height fog
  • Can now use different colors for the hemisphere facing the light and vice versa

  • Added ability to tint editor icons similar to Point Lights
  • PNGs can now be imported as textures; RGB and RGBA formats are supported
  • Viewports
  • o New Alt+F/G/H/J shortcuts to switch between viewport types
    o Greatly reduced the time it takes for volume visibility updates

Installer

  • Now being localized for
  • o INT - English

Editor Fixes

  • Materials can no longer be placed as decals unless the decal usage flag is set
  • Fixed fog volumes being created when dropping materials sometimes
  • Fixed support for non-standard languages

FBX Importer

  • Added support for rigid animation!
  • FBX import settings are now remembered between sessions
  • Importer will detect the type of asset to import by peeking at the FBX file
  • New import option to override naming of imported assets
  • Textures can now be imported (with or without a material being created)
  • The FBX import dialog has been improved
  • Updated to the latest FBX SDK (2011.2)
  • Can now re-import skeletal meshes from FBX files
  • Fixed smoothing group warning dialog spam on mesh import

UDKGame

  • Scaleform / UI
  • o Added (prototype) Scaleform-based front end and HUD to UDKGame
    o Added GFx example content to ExampleMap
    o Scaleform implementations of HUD, Pause Menu, Scoreboard
  • Code clean-up
  • o Moved UT-specific functionality from Weapon to UTWeapon
    o Moved HUDIcons and HUDCoords properties from UDKVehicleBase to UTVehicle
    o Cleaned up UDK default engine.inis down to two
    o Moved DeathTime from UDKPawn to UTPawn
    o Removed unused UDKPawn property LookYaw
    o Removed PlayFiringSound() call from Weapon.FireAmmunition() (not implemented for any game except UTGame)
    o Moved bio death material effect system from UDKPawn to UTPawn
  • Enabled tone mapping and color grading support to UDK
  • o  Enabled by default now so all scenes will receive contrast-enhancing tone mapping
  • Misc
  • o  Changed input handling of controller demo to not recurse, therefore stopping the CLIK button from swallowing the GAMEPAD_A event
    o Spawn player as spectator if ?causeevent=flythrough is passed on the commandline
    o  Set bFixedPlayerStart=true, bForceRespawn=true, and bQuickStat=true if ?causeevent=flythrough is passed on the commandline

Swarm

  • Fixed several issues related to version numbers and matching Agents to Jobs
  • Change usage of "localhost" to using the localhost IP address (127.0.0.1) instead

Gameplay Profiler

  • Replacing old UE2 ueScriptProfiler
  • Adds ability to drill into actor and component tick
  • Documentation:

Attachment Editor

  • Draw bone/socket label on connector for actors attached to skeletal meshes
  • Allow nodes to be manually moved around
  • Allow attachments to be made in a more 'Kismet like' way

NavMesh

  • Lots of runtime navmesh optimizations (mostly related to dynamic submesh builds)
  • o Huge speed gains

AnimSet Viewer

  • Added copy and paste animations to the AnimSet browser
  • New options for calculating Bone Break
  • o Default: Both meshes have to influence to use rigid
    o Auto Detect Rigid: Detects rigid when soft body misses the weight
    o Alternate weight preferred: Second weight has more priority
  • Added "Delete selected bone weighting" option
  • "Toggle Mesh Weights" option
  • o Displayed if there is a valid set of weights for the current LOD
    o Otherwise, the option is disabled
  • Added info to display chunks/sections when swapping vertex weights

Max Quality Mode

  • Added MaxQualityMode option for taking high-resolution screenshots
  • Increases texture res and shadow quality regardless of performance

Property Multi-Select and Cut-Paste

  • Control-Click on properties to add to selection
  • Control-C, Control-V or right click to copy and paste!

Lighting Changes

  • Improved unbuilt lighting performance
  • Changed bUseBooleanEnvironmentShadowing to default to TRUE for best performance
  • o Light environments will not receive dynamic shadows from the static environment unless bUseBooleanEnvironmentShadowing is changed back to false!
  • Primitives with bShadowIndirectOnly=true no longer cast dynamic shadows
  • Added bForceNoPrecomputedLighting to WorldInfo, allowing maps with fully dynamic lighting to skip time-consuming light building during a full rebuild
  • Hid light environment settings that are rarely used, edge cases, or only set by gameplay code to simplify the interface

Scene Capture Optimizations

  • 'Max View Distance Override': Set a culling distance for objects rendered into the reflection
  • 'Skip Update If Owner Occluded': Skip rendering to the scene capture entirely if it's not going to be visible
  • 'Skip Rendering Depth Prepass': Controls whether a depth prepass is performed when rendering the scene capture
  • Capture will be culled if last-bound time of the render target texture is more than a second ago

Rendering

  • Added map check warning for large shadow casters unless they have bAcceptsDynamicDominantLightShadows=false
  • New mesh emitter camera facing option: bApplyParticleRotationAsSpin
  • Changed bRenderAsVelocity to default to TRUE for RadialBlurComponents as they are much faster to render this way
  • Mesh area lights now affect dynamic objects!
  • o UE3 creates a spotlight at the center of the emissive area which is applied to dynamic objects
  • Added a new volume type: LightmassCharacterIndirectDetailVolume
  • o Lightmass generates higher density indirect character lighting samples inside these volumes
    o Useful for sections where characters are not over static ground, e.g., elevators
