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"

If you are considering building a powerful machine for UE4 development for around $2500, here is a spec we recommend:

Intel Core i7 4930K processor Intel X79 chipset motherboard 32GB RAM 1TB SSD Nvidia GTX 770 video card The 4930K is a great cost / CPU power trade-off for compiling the engine and running the editor.

We have found SSDs to be the best user experience, and with the advent of the Samsung Evo series even large amounts of SSD storage have become attainable.

Copious amounts of RAM is the single biggest contributor to a smooth user experience. While the editor and engine don't use 32 GByte, having the memory available for the disk cache is a boon, especially as a programmer compiling the full engine. We found going above 32 GByte resulting in diminishing returns.

You can take the consideration of Evols along with this list and shop around for what you can afford.

GTX 980 (Ti for Kite Demo) Intel i7 6700k 16Go RAM DDR4 (32 for Kite Demo) Compatible motherboard (Asus ROG Maximus VIII) 800W - 1000W alimentation

PS4/XBOX One : you will need a license from Microsoft/Sony, UE4 won't let you make console games otherwise

If someone is going to give you the cash, get 32GB of RAM...
