You might check into some of the oldskool mappers & modders in the epicgames
forums, as many of them have links in their sigs for tutorial content they've done
in the past - for a myriad of subjects ranging from coding to innovative mapping
techniques, normally for UE3/UDK content & I'm sure the new UE4 stuff is cooler.

Looking forward to trying out the new AI features in particular.
Awesome news! :D
& would be a refreshing break from dull, unimaginative NPC characters - where
you'd actually have to use some gray matter to outwit them, unlike a seemingly
hardcoded list of most regular AI enemies, siting too much repetitive interaction.

Where a true AI opponent should be context sensitive, giving each player mildly
different reactions - according to how they play, so each game is a bit harder to
play because each bot is storing statistics in a database of your reactive tactics! ☺

Heh, it might even be an interesting theme in a map - as an objective to locate
& destroy the bots AI database core, to be able to get a leg up on your enemy! :D
After closing your browser, it'll be with you - in back of your mind
waiting to inspire you, by what you've seen, heard, or read today
