Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

What is the minimum size one can achieve for android APK ?

Hi, When deploying for android, even the smallest game I compiled has a minimum size of ~60MB. Can it be further decreased? Can I deactivate parts of the engine besides plugins?

I want to use only UMG and Paper2D. Have tested every build configuration and selected only ETC1, etc (besides that my content folder is very small). It seems there is a minimum size I can not further decrease.

Is there any chance of making UE4 more modular for mobile?

What is the smallest apk size you get for a blank project ?

I created a new blank project and packed it for etc1 and it was somewhere like 50mb

After a few days researching and testing the lower I could get is 37mb using UMG and Paper2D in 4.6.1.

Follor these answer instructions: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/70842/why-are-android-file-sizes-so-big.html

Also check your level references: Right Click over your map asset -> Reference Viewer. And try to find any referenced resources that you don't really need. I deleted PostProcessingVolume cube that save me around 2mb because of referenced big size texture.
