I'm just learning UDK, and am trying to find some decent 3d models to use in some scene setups.
Sketchup's 3D warehouse has a handful of decent things, the rest is junk.
Turbosquid would be nice, except for the prices.
Is there some place I could get simple things, like a street light, or a park bench? I'm building various "scenes" to get the hang of things, maybe eventually show off my skills when they are adequate. No commercial projects.
With that in mind, perhaps there's a good game that the models could be extracted from to toy with? It'd be nice if all unreal games' assets could be imported, but as I've read time and again, there's no way to properly do that. Baffling...
So, any suggestions? I feel capped out on my learning quota. Only so much the brain can handle, Maya and 3DSMax would give me a stroke.
Thanks in advance!
