The Asset Manager is your gateway to creating just about anything in UED and is split into 9 different tabs which gives you quick access to all the different resources available.

AMB01 Textures.jpg

Textures[edit]

Textures are your paint in UED. With these you can colour in your walls/floors/ceilings in any material available within the textures list.

AMB02 ActorClasses.jpg

Actors[edit]

Actors are one of the most important parts of any Unreal game. An actor is a premade script in a modular form.

Actors range from Triggers to Item Pickups - just click where you want to add an item.

Meshes[edit]

Meshes are not used in Killing Floor.

AMB04 Animations.jpg

Animations[edit]

Animations can be viewed/played back on this tab. Not sure what program is used to make the animations.

Static Meshes[edit]

A static mesh (or SM) is a complex object such as a weapon/car/door/bed etc., things that fill up your world. A Static Mesh can either be left as a decoration or used as a moving door/vehicle and can be a fully usable weapon.

Static Meshes are made outside of UED using programs such as 3dsMAX and Maya. UED can be used to make basic SM's but when they get a bit too complicated UED tends to just crash so you need to save often if making it without an external program.

AMB06 Prefabs.jpg

Prefabs[edit]

Prefabs are not used in Killing Floor.

Groups[edit]

AMB08 Sounds.jpg

Sounds[edit]

The Sounds tab is where you can browse through to find all the game sounds that are available you; anything from Ambience (wind/waves/animals etc.) to Event Sounds (explosions/glass smashing/wood breaking).

AMB09 Music.jpg

Music[edit]

The Music tab is not needed for Killing Floor since it makes use of OGG Vorbis files which are not compatible with the Unreal Editor.
