We are a small Team working to Produce an Art & Tech. Demo, based upon the Theme and Concept of the Outline Above. When the Demo reaches the point where it is fully working, and ready to be evaluated, i will ask around for a Cinematics engineer to take footage of the Demo's scenery and functionality.
The Demo and Cinematic will go towards further recruitment, and We could have a shot at Epic Games' Grant of $50,000 to fund our Science & Tech. Then, Finalizing an Early Build for testing will come, and Early Access will be considered, once a solid level of stability and playability is reached.

Unreal 4 Documentation is fairly excruciating, the whole "Self-Learning" thing is basically something from the past. I have managed Assets from Epic MarketPlace along-side my own 3d art skinned, and have migrated several Projects to and from various Release Versions of UE4 (4.15/ 4.19.2-4.21.3) managing the Content folders, and World Outliners, with varying results. Rough Outline of GrassLand Interactive Foliage (TallGrass/ Tree Branches/Leaves, not Player-Reactive, need BP Designs) Video Capture of PC 1080p 30Hz is available: https://youtu.be/sVQ_m2HBZa8

Programmers/ BluePrint Designers (2/Each)
Programmers to work with our art for implementation
BluePrint Designers to work with the Programmers
-C++ Experienced Applicants should be able to create clean, and future-proofed code so as to mix with BluePrinting at a functional level.
-BluePrint Designers will need to create and/or tweak existing Assets and those C++/C# coders create; Basic Level Interactivity, Main Menu, and Player Functionality will be needed as BP.
Level Designers (2)

Weapons Modeller + Skinner + Animator*
- Police and Military Weapons knowledge is preferred, although if you can model from image references, prior knowledge is not necessary.
*Animators must fit weapons to UE4 Skeleton with Character Models and create fluid, functional animations.
- Ability to create texture skins Are very much needed. The processing and loading of Textures and Materials would hint that skins should be created with any attachments besides Optics, included in 1 (one) 4096^2 Texture.This is not always the answer, i know. Separate Image Creation Layers (*duplicated skin layer with height info rather than diffuse (base Color) info) of skins for Heightmaps info as the skins are painted, so Skin Painters should have Expert Level Painting, and Layer Manipulation Experience. Photoshop preferred.
*Please ignore if accustomed to painting skins with Layers (Photoshop, as described above: Normals Baking Is Required for the 3D Modeller, with Heightmaps baked into an Alpha, and separate texture, to keep the Source Content Ready for Patching.. These are for use to use the Normals to accent the models, and the Heightmaps in Alpha/ Duplicate Texture will plug into the Bump Offset from Red Channel of Height to enable Parallax.
*Material Artists with experience in using MAtNodes are very much in-demand. Experience with the various nodes and variable functions are the icing on the cake to be Innovative, and polished.
*For any skinning/ texturing involved Applicants, duplicated skin layers with height info rather than diffuse (base Color) info) of skins for Heightmaps info as the skins are painted, so Skin Painters should have Expert Level Painting, and Layer Manipulation Experience.
