    DO NOT EDIT any lines of code from within the notepad ++ all we need to do is Select all (CTL + A) \ Edit > Select All from menus.

    Then head back to the editor and right click > Edit > Past ( Ctrl + V ) in to the blank level that you create

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Step5.3UT4Editor.png Views:	1 Size:	1.01 MB ID:	396095

    Then you will see you level in the editor as wired frame, then save the level click on Save Current or Ctrl + S name the file as the same name as the folder with you textures sounds ect are in and theirs a new .dat file this also needs to be save along side the level too to kept it up to date every time you build the map or edit it

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Step5.6UT4Editor.png Views:	1 Size:	1.02 MB ID:	396094 Click image for larger version  Name:	image_28338.png Views:	1 Size:	13.9 KB ID:	396092

    Press Build all and let the editor build the map for you some times its freezes but let it go though the motions


    All done now, you will have the level ready for UT4, the only thing you will need to do is go though the level and check weapon points are placed correctly, add water \ lquid if needed and check for any erros in Editor Log window to be fixed and thats it

        they didn't disable it. If you are about to import it you type in *.* and press enter. This will allow any file. Then you choose your t3d
