In the second year of my university degree, I was tasked with producing an Unreal Tournament 2004 total conversion mod for the “Game Development Techniques” module. The mod had to be based on one of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books.
The level was created in UnrealEd and scripted with UnrealScript. It features a high-quality skybox, dynamic fluid surfaces, many prop objects and decal layers, in addition to terrain generated from a heightmap. The scripts simply define the custom collectible items and trigger the cutscenes, etc. I received a “B+” grade for this coursework.
You can play my mod for yourself, simply download it from the following link, extract it to your UT2004 installation directory, and run the “MattMod” shortcut.
