Default UT Engine Tutorials - Any online?

Just wondering if anyone knew of a good tutorial/getting started guide for the UT Engine?

Most folks start by playing around with the editing tools that come with the Unreal games. Or so I hear.
Or you can use this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=tutorials+for+unreal+engine

First of all, Mr Sloper that link is hilarious

Secondly,

Do you mean for UT3? or UT2004? (I have to use UT2004 as my computer can't seem to be able to handle UT3).

UT3

When UT3 first came out, the special edition had a slew of UnrealEd 3 tutorial videos created by the guys over at 3dbuzz.com. They are extremely well made and what I used to start learning UnrealEd 3. They also cover general good level design techniques. Try to find a copy off eBay or elsewhere on the internet for them cause I believe when it comes to learning level design, video tutorials are more helpful than written ones.

Once you get familar with one editor program, the others become much easier to learn. They are all virtually the same for the most part. I just started learning Hammer and it's a breeze since I have experience with UnrealEd.

Lastly, if you get real serious about level design get this book, http://book.hourences.com/bookabout.htm

There aren't many out there, at least that I know of, that go over what makes a good maps and levels in modern FPS games. His site also has tons of tutorials as well.

I've been getting into some level editing with Unreal 3 lately, and I've found http://udn.epicgames.com/Three/UT3ModHome.html to be a pretty helpful site. Like was said earlier, google is will also give you some good stuff.

I'm still debating whether or not to get the latest Mastering Unreal book.

3D Buzz is a great site for anything to do with UnrealEd and it also has good tutorials on Maya/Max if that interests you.

Their mastering Unreal book is an excellent way to get familiar with the engine, it covers most aspects and there are 2 more volumes coming out to explain the toher areas- well worth the price!(And you get a free download of Unreal from steam with the book as a bonus)
