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"

Package size for C++ blank project is 699mb?

I know this question has been asked several times before but the information out there is still not answering questions regarding package size.

The following is without the starter content.

I create a blank C++ project with a few meshs and texture files and when I export to win64 as Developement the folder size is 699mb's. Changing to shipping reduces it to 400mb but thats still quite high.

When creating a blueprint only project with the same assets it is only 200mb's. Even 200mb is still frustrating to not understand where all this is going. Why such a huge difference between blueprint only and C++?

I've asked several question.. My aim is to gain a better understanding of how a project influences package size. Can a staff member or experienced developer break this topic down to give the community better information :)
