Excluding textures and sound for dedicated servers
We have a client and server type of game that works with dedicated servers.
We will distribute standalone dedicated servers this week on steam as 'tool' and hope we could get rid of the textures and sound assets in a convenient way.
All assets being .uasset we can't easily get rid of them and it is not convenient to manually get them out at every build.
Is there something we could do to filter certain asset types at the cooking level?
Our game weight +10Gb build so it would certainly be beneficial for us, the user and steam.

If anyone is interested to know, dedicated servers can be packaged properly in "small footprint configuration" by using the RunUAT bat file ;
CALL "%RunUAT_PATH%" BuildCookRun -project="%Project_PATH%" -noP4 -platform=Win64 -clientconfig=%PackageType% -serverconfig=%PackageType% -cook -server -serverplatform=Win64 -noclient -build -stage -archive -archivedirectory="Output Directory"
I hope this helps.
