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 is huge please help

hey guys, like the question says, I've got a really small game I've made using blueprints in unreal. When I try package the game, it results in a 991mb file. but what I don't understand is the project folder for the game is only 285mb.

So where is the extra 700mb coming from? I have no starter content in the game and had seen from other posts to delete the saved folder before trying to package, but it all results in the same final size.

I am on a mac, but have noticed these problems exist for widows users too?

I am very new to unreal and this is my first game I'm trying to get out, even getting it down to half the current size would help tremendously and any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have looked into the issue, and have discovered that we have a bug in our system (UE-22192) related to Compress Cooked Packages not working properly. This is most likely the cause of your increased package size. I will provide updates relating to this issue as they become available.

Have a great day,
