Creating a Metro Train Interior in Unreal Engine 5

Creating a Metro Train Interior in Unreal Engine 5

Learn how a professional environment artist works when creating interior environments for games. You’ll learn techniques like high poly modeling, using UE5 Nanite, Procedural and unique texturing, level art, Lighting and Post Effects (Using the new Lumen System), creating advertisements, and other stickers.


All the modeling will be done in Maya, However, the techniques used are universal and can be replicated in any other 3d modeling package. The materials will be created using Substance Designer and previewed in Marmoset Toolbag 4. The environment will be built in the brand-new Unreal Engine 5 and we will be using the new Nanite and Lumen systems, Adverts will be created in Photoshop and we will be using substance painter for unique textures and mask creation.

In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to create the results that you see in the images and trailers. Next to this, the same techniques can be applied to almost any type of environment.

18+ HOURS!

This course contains over 18 hours and 50 minutes of content – You can follow along with every single step – The course does enclose a few small-time lapses, this is just to speed up very repetitive tasks, the rest is done in real-time. However, due to popular requests, we have also included the un-time lapsed footage without audio.

We will start by going over our reference, then we will dive right in and start by creating a blockout (to make sure all our pieces fit together), and then we will be turning this blockout into high poly models. Thanks to the new nanite system we do not have to create low poly models.
After this, we will go over how to create simple but flexible procedural materials and unique textures. We will UV-Unwrap all our models and export them to UE5 in which we will set them up, create our shaders and build our level.
We will then move on to creating our advertisements and stickers in photoshop and apply them to our level.
Finally, we will do the final lighting and post-effect pass on our scene and we will show you how to properly polish the scene to final.


This game art tutorial is perfect for students who have some familiarity with a 3d Modeling tool like Maya, Substance Designer/Painter, photoshop, and Unreal Engine – Everything in this tutorial will be explained in detail. However, if you have never touched any modeling or texturing tools before we recommend that you first watch an introduction tutorial of those programs (you can find many of these for free on YouTube or paid on this very website)
