The Fall of Arcadia Breakdown

After posting my Unreal scene, I wanted to make a breakdown of the material and material function creation, lighting effects, lighting, and creation of assets for the scene. I have also included a video showing how the environment would come alive in game, and progress throughout the creation.

I wanted to thank all the people that helped me during the creation of this environment, especially Nate Stephens. Your class was very informative and taught me many great concepts. I cannot thank you enough.
