Default Interview with Tim Sweeney

Hi everyone,

after I have finished my futuremark interview, it is time for something new. This time I am going to do an interview with Tim Sweeney from Epic. If you have any questions regarding the Unreal Engine 3 or other stuff, please feel free to post them here!!!

Looking forward to your questions!

Who are you since you get to have interviews with teh masters?

Here for the questions:

Regarding Unreal 3: Are they focusing of one or two specific graphics areas, like Carmack did with dynamic shadows in Doom 3 and Valve are doing with facial animations and world physics in Half-Life 2. Or are they just making an all-round engine and thus dividing their work all over the visual areas?

Regarding the Unreal Tournament series: He properbly won't answer this, but lets have a go: Now with the introduction of vehicles in UT2k4, what do they plan to include like new features in UT2k5? I know that properbly nothing is certain yet, but it would be fun to hear what kind of ideas they have for the next UT game..


Well thats all I can think of for now.. When will you interview him? (You know so we know how much time we have to think of questions)

Will Unreal 3 be in the hands of Epic unlike Unreal 2 which was handed off to Legend?

No, NVIDIA lost NVIDIAs APU. It won't be showing up on nforce3, nforce4, or any future nforce unless we do enough convincing to the OEMs that its necessary.

Legend Entertainment is no more, so the answer to that question is more than likely yes.

Well, not Legend, but you'll note that all the UTs have been with Digital Extremes assistance...so they may well find another company to work with

Will mod authors have access to write their own Pixel Shaders to use? Or we will have to use the new materials interface?
