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 engine plugin outside the marketplace.

Hello there! I have been working on a plugin which is added on the engine level. So technically it is "custom" engine branch. As far as I know current marketplace doesn't support that. Yet I heard that we can use third-party places to sell the plugins, as long as we pay Epic Games.

So I have a few questions because plugin changes the engine code:

  1. Can I sell it as some sort of "git patch" file for UE4?

  2. Can I create private organization on github, with cloned UE4 branch (which will include my plugin), and sell the invitation to that organization (so people won't have to use "git patch" file)?

  3. Is there another way to sell the engine plugin?

Thank you in advance!

Hi there!

So to answer your points in order:

1) Yes, you certainly can.

2) Unfortunately no, we do not allow for a fully cloned UE4 branch.

3) You are certainly able to sell this separately and don't need anything from us on that end. If you would like to reach out just to cover your bases you're certainly welcome to let us know.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you need anything else.
