    UE3 mod questions

    Hi,
    I was wondering about the capabilities of the engine, as am considering moving an existing mod to a new engine. Game is a FPS with heavy vehicle focus. (tanks/jets/apcs/helicopters)

    Maximum map size and view distance?

    Minimum would be 8km x 8km maps and 2-3km view distance.

    Players? Would like 100+, the more the better.

    What are the capabilities?

    You own a mainframe computer?

      The current engine can do 64 players... to move to a new engine, it would need to be able to have more then that.

      And no, there is no need for a mainframe computer, just a good server.

        Not sure what limitation of engine are. trying to find that msyelf. Maybe a dedicated dual core server would suffice?

        What engine are you using now? BF2? only engine i recall that can handle 64 players. i remember tinkering around with farcry map editor. makinga 100x100 km map. that was... hummm. interesting :P

        i think UE3 can handle map transitions while playing though.
        (imagines a large island map, with some people taking of in gets or choppers or whatever. then flying high up into the atmosphere for even more room to dog fight in.

          I dont know about player numbers, but view distance seems to be unlimited in Unreal Engine 3.
          If there is a limit it sure is hella high.

          Heres a screenshot of a map I was making using Unreal Engine 3.

          The view distance is approx 3 miles square, I had to manually add hight fog to make the view distance stop at some point, if I hadnt, the scene woulda looked alot less real.

            You already have a UE3 editor? Where is this available?

            100km x 100km map, that would be great, exactly what we would be looking for.

            And unlimited view distance... excellent.

            Now only the amount of players is the problem.

                Uncapped player limit, as long as your computer/server can handle it though...
