Order from Chaos – Destruction in UE4 | GDC 2019 | Unreal Engine


Whether making a high-end AAA game or a small-team indie title, physics simulation and destruction can play a huge part in bringing your games to life. In this Unreal Engine Learning Theater session by Epic’s Alan Noon during GDC 2019, you will see new tools and techniques for creating high-end, sophisticated physics and destruction effects in Unreal Engine. Learn how to use these tools to develop interactive worlds that can be fractured, scattered and destroyed.

  1. This is really nice and looks really friendly!!
    Questions come to mind about partnerships with Nvidia and stuff. Does this replacing physx mean anything?

  2. Amazing! I want try it asap

  3. I really wish they would improve the engines parallel programming before anything else. 4 threads isnโ€™t much.

  4. When this system goes live I'd really like to see a presentation on good practices when it comes to making your environments modular! Destruction is something that I've had a difficult time researching, and haven't found much in terms of practical examples (mainly just interviews with devs from games like Siege, talking about the theory behind how they did certain things). This presentation certainly made those concepts a bit clearer, but it'd be nice to see more of a bridge between the gap of "what's done to accomplish this in 3D software, and what's done to implement it in UE4"

    Nonetheless, great presentation! Can't wait to see this system go live!

  5. Who ever is either talking or watching something on their phones needs to be sent out to the naughty step.

  6. Yes! The destruction engine really needed an update. This looks very promising. I really hope you can set more than 2/3 materials (exterior/interior/selection) per geometry collection though! Seems that way, but isn't obvious @8:39

  7. You guys are doing a brilliant job on the engine, Very well constructed, the only Engine I would prefer to use

  8. But can it actually not break everything into chunks all at once? Like actual building demolition where you collapse the supports and the fall will crush the rest of the walls as they fall down.

  9. If you wouldn't mind Epic Games, could I re-upload this after processing the sound a little to get rid of the background noise? Listening to this at work, with one headphone in is driving me insane in the membrane. Next year at the GDC, could you guys hire out your own auditorium? Just use the profits from Fortnite, should have a coupld of quid left after for drinks. Love all the new stuff coming out for UE4 by the way.

  10. Zak yelling in the background really makes this video. Anyone who binged 3DBuzz videos could pick out his voice from a mile away.

  11. What I would love to see is a flexible destruction system that can handle things like wood and metal. Kind of like Digital Molecular Matter

  12. Can someone explain to me how you can have a cached simulation that you can also interact with? Does it still run everything the player is not interacting with as cached?

  13. This system is the EXACT same concept and implementation that Blender 3D has. Developed by a small team over five years…

  14. maybe well get a new red faction, and im not talking about the reboot. the original red faction is so much better.

  15. This video would be so much better without that really annoying person screaming in the background , I'm having to really focus on ignoring him.
    But seriously this is really exciting stuff , We basically now have frostbite engine level destruction in Unreal :)))))))))))..
    And I get the feeling that maybe Unreal will have mesh and sculpting tools one day and remove the need for over priced software from autodesk and become a single solution .
    I can Dream RIGHT?

  16. remember when crysis came out and everyone was hyped for more ingame physics, then it basically disapeared? even from crysis games.

  17. I hope this will better support destructable objects with hollow insides, can't go in buildings with APEX.

  18. I believe the background noise was from the eSports booth. I forget the name, but the guy was going 8 hours constant for 3 days on a speaker and wireless mic.

  19. I let myself clean that audio a bit to have a chance to focus on that great content ๐Ÿ™‚ here`s link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmbMuyRmCnc&feature=youtu.be

  20. is this mesh editor ( https://youtu.be/iFKzXnIiH50?t=479 ) is implemented in 4.23 rendering branch ? I dont see it in my build ,chaos solver is there , please point me to any documentation relate to this Thank You

  21. This way of creating a Geometry Collection is not working anymore.

  22. I think the biggest gap in my understanding is the specifics of how fields work. The video doesn't spend enough time on it.
