About the User Interface and Interactive Tools

This is for version 2.2 of the Unreal 4 User Interface. It has now three main looks: Classic (like version 1), Compressed (like version 2.0) and a VR ready version on a 3D phone in the scene (phone can be replaced). Actors from previous versions are not compatible due to engine or design changes.

If you want to update an older project, create a new project and migrate the entire project from the previous version to it. Then update the data in the blueprint actors where necessary. Some data can be copy/pasted but save before you try.

Features are:

  • Mesh and material swaps.
  • Swap actors trigger other actors.
  • Design / Colour schemes.
  • Baked scenarios for lighting or layouts.
  • Interactive floor plan.
  • Movie (sequence) player
  • keyboard/mouse/game controller.
  • UI Design customization.
  • VR style interface. (1 drop box to change)
  • Easy settings for FOV or player speed.
  • Ready to output HTML or CSV lists.
