I'm gonna try to download UE4 on my wife's laptop right now! XD I think her laptop may be able to handle it. Will let you know the outcome of the installation.

How much RAM is in that laptop. It will run with 8Gb but be a little sluggish.

I'm not sure actually. I opened up an example map and it's working fine. I plan on redoing Triaxiality as my first project to familiarize myself with the program and any nuances it has...of course AFTER I'm done with Ice Breaker.

I was actually toying with it for like half an hour. I really need to adjust to this new UI.

Luckily many experienced content creators are creating some cool tutorials! :D

It sounds like Zak from www.3DBuzz.com :D

The Slate technology behind the UI is awesome because you can drag and drop or combine or tear off whatever you want and stick it anywhere. First thing you should do is click the little graduation hat in the top right corner as that will walk you thru what does what.

Man, that is awesome. Can't say I didn't see it coming, given how popular and well loved the Unreal Engine has been. I might as well grab it even though I don't know the first thing of what to do with it :P

I also heard that they are doing grants anywhere from 5k to 50k if you have a prototype game to send in to them.

Holy moly - The 4.8 update has honestly the most ridiculously insanely long list of bug fixes and new features I've seen to date: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Support/Builds/ReleaseNotes/2015/4_8/index.html Guess it helps when you have hundreds of community people fixing stuff for you for free. Looking forward to trying out the new AI features in particular.
