Borderlands Level Editing Tutorials
These are a series of tutorials I wrote on how you can build your own custom maps for borderlands. These tutorials assume that you have some basic knowledge of working with the Unreal Level editor including editor navigation, Use of the builder brush and basic knowledge of kismet. If you are a true beginner to using the Unreal 3 engine, I recommend the video tutorials created by the folks over at Buzz 3d the located over on the UDK. I recommend watching the videos on the User Interface, Geometry Mode, Kismetand Simple Level to bring yourself up to speed on using the Unreal editor.
We use the Oasis map hub, created by Turks on the gearbox forums. Please follow this thread for installing and traveling to the Oasis map. I recommend testing out the other community made maps to see what others have already figured out on their own.
I will not be making video tutorials on how to get the level editor working. For all inquiries about this process, I recommend visiting the Borderlands forums and asking for help there. If you have any feedback about these tutorials, or if anything is unclear, drop me a line.
