    So this was it then....anyway can you actually modify the engine or something? Or not...I guess not, right?

    Anyway, is that Ball demo any new content? And the new UT demo, will they release it standalone too? Can you play online with it? By hearing only 3 weapon are included, I guess not.

    I request that somebody makes a physics sandbox game like Garry's Mod, just with PhysX instead of HavokII :D

    So I was wondering, how much do I need to know, in order to do anything with this UDK thing?

    Ho. Ly. ****.

    What happens to the licensing system to the older engines? Like UE2 with the non-commercial AND no-game license?

    I'm downlading this now. But it still doesn't seem like a really fair bargain, from what I gathered for commercial use you have to pay 25% of you revenue which kinda really ****ing steep. But this should be fantastic for mods.

    Don't quote me on this, but I assume all the licensee studios have this same build as well. The new content browser is amazing!

    Well, potential access to. A lot of studios will still use older versions, since they don't necessarily need all the newest features, and merging with the newest builds would prove to time consuming to warrant it worth-while.

    So what's the catch, besides no Epic support?

    While true, keep in mind how much a license costs. If you're creating something you don't expect to be able to sell tons of copies of, its hard to justify the price epic charges for a license.

    I think you get basically every form of development tool for the engine, but no engine source. Much like UE2 runitme but without all the restrictions on how you can use it.

    ****ingly awesome. And since many UT3 mods impressed the hell out of me, this is even more awesome to see what people can do with UE3.

    With Unreal LightMass, Holp Developers can make all their maps look like mirrors edge levels. /droool

    Yeah I know but it's still a lot of money for a royaltee fee. And I'm hoping that if people start using this more the percentage might go down because this UDK is seriously awesome. The lighting in all of the sample maps is just beautiful.

    It might be a high royalty percentage, but if you expect to sell about 100 copies for $20 bucks each then I'd rather get $1500 and give Epic $500 than get all $2,000 and pay $1,000,000 license to Epic. Anyone expecting to do well and on a large scale will probably find the funding to buy a traditional license. I'm excited about the possibilities that this is opening!
