I'm sure most of you on the Source engine know these sites already, this is for the newcomers:

Snarkpit: http://www.snarkpit.net/

A (rare) French tutorial on a lot of things: http://nyko18.free.fr/Hammer/?p=optimisation#II_3_B

Free sounds and sound effects for everyone: http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/

Halfwit2:http://halfwit-2.com/?page=tutorials&action=view&item=44

Obviously the Valve wiki should be listed as well:

i've decided to pick up unreal engine, all the links here are dead (i don't want to learn unreal3 just yet) - can anyone recommend some good tutorials on just using the engine - also getting static meshes from maya (preferably 8.5) into the editor/engine?

big thanks in advance

There is no reason not to learn UE3, knowing UE2 is pretty much entirely useless right now.

Yeah, I guess so...

If anyone knows any useful links regarding UT3 editing, post away please.

I know the game isn't out yet, but RoboBlitz has been released ages ago, I bet there's already some tut's and articles around the internets.

In a few weeks, we're gonna put our hands on the official Epic tutorials that come with the collectors edition, so... :cool:

Collectors edition of what? gears?
