Gnom is very expensive, the course you took was 1,600.00.
you can learn unreal in the net for free (tutorial).
dude, let's face it, you can learn anything for "free"
if unreal is anything like source then that means you can't be really creative because no resources online is going to show you how to do something different to make-a-map-that-uses-all-the-stuff-you-can-find-in-game-and-use-all-the-predefined-in-game-things
and if the kids who make mods for unreal are anything like the kids who make mods for source then not a single one of them will ever know anything past the basics and will tell you to bugger off and read a wiki which is almost completely useless and doesn't tell you what you need to know
... $US1600 really isn't that much money, and i would expect to pay about that much anyway for something like that,
unless you're just another kid who's just fooling around and not actually doing anything, in which case it does cost more than a few games.
and anyway, some people like to have someone show them the basics before they start getting creative
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
