In the same GitHub you can find instructions on how use it. It is as easy as using the tools offered by OpenStreetMap, a free, collaborative platform, to export an XML with the information from the area of the city that we want to use. «Begins with something reasonably small so the export and download complete fast», recommends Fricker. «Tries to make zoom in a town small or in a block of a city ‘.
The example uses New York, but this plugin has much more potential than that: why not try it with Toledo, for example, or Santiago de Compostela, or with my city, León, which is well pretty old. United States is a site flat and gray, as the models by default that takes the plugin inside Unreal Engine; with the Cathedral of Burgos possibly guess not so much, but worth a try.
The plugin is a «weekend» project and is not official from Epic Games, so it has no technical support or warranties of any kind. That is created by the technical director of the engine helps to trust him, in any case.
