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"

Licensing clarification

I need clarification on licensing of unreal engine. I wont be releasing any games with the engine, or any demos made with it. The only thing I will be doing is setting out levels within unreal, and displaying pictures of the level on my website. Is this covered by the monthly fee, or is there some rule that says I would still need to pay epic a & of the 3d content pack that is displayed in the images? Also, a second question is, is it possible to export these projects from unreal and provide these with a 3d content pack? Again, wold I be required to pay Epic anything other than the monthly fee?

Would really appreciate concise answers on this, so I am clear of my position on this.

If you're just using the engine to create screenshots, no royalties are owed.

As to my next question, once imported into unreal, I then create a scene with the imported content of my packs, can I provide the unreal project files to my customers like? Again, I'm releasing no games, or demos, I'm simply providing the content packs in unreal format so a customer can have a demo scene or in most cases a character is already converted from the FBX.

Best wishes Steve, Arteria3d

If you're selling an Unreal project file, royalties would be owed. It would be considered a Product under the EULA.
