Hey Riki,

I recently purchased your Unreal Materials dvd which was incredibly helpful by the way and I thank you. I was wondering if there was any chance you could give me sort of a private tutorial of how you would go about setting up an actually scene in UDK with bsp or Static meshes, which ever you prefer. Do you simply create a huge floor of bsp then build the map on top of it? What about a skydome? How do you make it fit in your map so the player can't see the rest of the grid? I no I'm asking a lot here man, but I sure would appreciate it. I have some really cool ideas, but I'm just not sure how to set up a basic scene in UDK. Thanks again.

April 28, 2010 - 2:59pm

Hey Riki,
Just signed up to Eat3d today:) I already own many of Eat3d's training DVDs and they're all ace - keep 'em coming!


March 24, 2010 - 2:34pm

Yeah we really want to do competitions and have some plans but I keep getting hammered from many different sides and its a lot to keep up with. Keep your eye out though, Im hoping Andy will be able to handle some of this coming up.


March 24, 2010 - 1:37pm

No problem, at GDC alone I know of at least 3 people that purchased at least 1 DVD because of my suggestions.
I know I've already stated this in the forums but, has that forum competition idea crossed your mind yet?


March 24, 2010 - 1:30pm

I cant thank you enough my friend. Word of mouth has been the best marketing for Eat3D! Smiling

Hey riki i need your help .Do you know how to install ephere scene manager in 3ds max 9 can you give me a link where i can find theis


February 28, 2010 - 11:36pm

Hey Riki, I was working on the old damaged pillar. I noticed in the DVD, when you sub-divide the wheel in mudbox for the first time, it becomes messed up because you made a mistake.

Since you made a mistake in one of your videos, I demand a full refund.

Lol just jokin. But when I did it, I remembered to disable my smooth, so I was all set.

Great video.. keep em comin
