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"

Why are android packages so large?

My entire project folder is only 48mb in size and yet when I package it for android it takes up 1.2gb on my phone?

Why is it so large and why is Tappy Chicken so small when its packaged?

Some of us have already talked about it in this forum https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/141532/releasing-for-android-size-workaround.html#answer-203991

look for my comment to my answer i think you are suffering from what we just did.

And to answer your question tappy chicken for some reason has a smaller engine library within its apk its content is 13.5 mb all uncompressed in the final apk.

All of us are using a engine library that's 60mb -> 20mb compressed they are using 43mb -> 13mb compressed

Why? How? Magic? noone from unreal has really answered any of us till this point.
