Unfortunately not. UT replaces the Bases properly when rebuilding. But the bases are no big problem.
I believe you can sink it into the floor to hide the base
I'll take a look at it for a few minutes if I get stumped somewhere else, a fix is likely not very difficult.
we're just doing the programming, so as far as we're concerned, it's internal name is 'Five Week'.
I am referring just to the naming users installing and playing the project can see. That means filenames, name of the gametype and so forth. Those should be renamed to TimeTrial_ ..
You can do this on your end quite easily just before your distribution (it saves everyone else the hassle of having to switch too); if you rename the folder containing the scripts, then the script package will be called the same as the folder. Renaming the individual files is also easy - just make sure you change the name of the class on the first line, and make sure you do a search within the files for 'fiveweek' - these should all be in the default properties, and you can change the class references here.
I got a little afraid when i read this because we can not delay the deadline. I got an e-mail today that i will have to present the finished project to my teachers between may 4th and the 11th. That means we need to be feature complete and fully functional at may 4th. We can not delay any important tasks behind that date.
As soon as the May 4th deadline reaches, I'm hoping we'll take what we have forward and start working towards the June 20th deadline, wherein the project is already internally named 'DataRun'; although I should stress that this is probably a fairly different project from Five Week / Timetrial.
I said May 4th, because that's the deadline you gave us earlier in the week, with the 11th being the final date for your hand in (thus a week after we wanted to be finished). This would mean wrapping up all our work on the 3rd next weekend. If this is the case, then that gives us one week, so we should consider the project 'feature locked' as of this point, rather than what I was expecting to be next week. The rest would then fall into improvement work; fixing up outstanding issues and cleaning up what we do have. I'll also ensure you get a list of required files to include in the distributable; some of the files in the content folder aren't required and are from my work with Darknet.
Until your deadline, we'll continue to work on your project, regardless of whether it has anything to do with the design / implementation I have in mind for DataRun.
Anyway, as far as I'm aware, nothing is missing from the original design spec? As for powerups, if you wanted to include any, there is always the jump boots too, although I would expect your level design to hopefully be largely complete by now? If we would want another power-up, I think I could quickly knock up a 'super-speed' power up tonight.
There is also a legal issue with continuing the project. Because it is developed as a project at the "school for applied science of arts zurich" they legaly own the rights to the project. We are not allowed to publish it or sell it (as example) without their agreement. If we/you continue the work on the project it should look like a different game. That means another name, not the same levels / textures and so on. I dont think they would sue you if they'd find out, but just to let you know.
The code is ours, the assets are yours to hand over to the school. This won't present any problems, because all our code is governed by the Lesser Open Unreal License; you're free to use it as you please so long as credit is given where credit is due. The school cannot make any more claims over our code than they can over the original UT3 code from which it is derived. You can nab the license details from here:http://wiki.beyondun...nrealModLicense
Not that it matters; the project is very different, of that you can be assured; the only similarity shared is the emphasis on speed-running the environment. You'll of course be welcome to stick with us until the end on the second half of the project too, but it's understandeable if you don't want to be a part of it.
