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"

Selling content

Could you please tell me what the royalty payment would be for selling UDK 4 content only, for example models, environments?

If I do not create a game with UDK 4 but only sell content is the royalty payment still 5% of sales?

Also am I able to sell my UDK 4 content on other websites besides the integrated marketplace?

If you are doing it based as "work for hire" no royalties are owed. However if you sell it as a product, then the royalties are owed on the sale of that content.

Per the license:

You agree to pay Epic a royalty equal to 5% of all worldwide gross revenue actually attributable to each Product, regardless of whether such revenue is received by you or any other person or legal entity, as follows: a. Gross revenue resulting from any and all sales of a Product to end users through any and all media, including but not limited to digital and retail;


“Product” means any product developed under this Agreement that combines any Licensed Technology with any other software or content, regardless of how much or little of the Licensed Technology is used.

From my understanding of the license there are no restrictions on where you sell the content but you will have to pay the royalty regardless. Currently the Marketplace does not allow for user contributions, but that is certainly something we plan to have :)
