New Integrated App: Lightmass Tweaker


Next version of Unreal X-Editor includes Lightmass Tweaker which is a small application that lets you modify Lightmass settings (Medium Quality, High Quality, Production Quality) inside UDK.

NOTE: This application is aimed at Expert users only. Beginners should never modify these settings!

New Feature: Find Function


I added a new feature called Find Function in Unreal X-Editor which lists function usages. The way it works is when you right click on any function name and select “Find Function”, you will see a list that shows where this function is used or overrided.

[TIP] Change Player Models based on Team for Multiplayer Team Deathmatch


In my game i implemented Team Deathmatch a few days ago but was struggling to update player mesh based on Team. But today i finally managed to do it and decided to share incase if anyone else is facing the same problem.

In your custom Team Deathmatch Game class add the below code:

function class<Pawn> GetDefaultPlayerClass(Controller C)
{
    if (C.PlayerReplicationInfo.Team.GetTeamNum() == 0)
    {
        return class'Team0PawnClass';
    }
    return class'Team1PawnClass';
}

Thats it! We just override the GetDefaultPlayerClass function to get the player model based on Team.

Hope you find this useful.

New Feature: Toast Notifications


I included Toast Notifications in Unreal X-Editor. They will appear on certain events such as Compiling, Launching Game and Editor, Launching Frontend and more. Here is a example screenshot.

And for those who dont like Toast dont worry. You will be able to disable this by “-notoast” commandline.
