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"

Well, here are the rules: http://ygd.bafta.org/sites/default/files/uploads/YGD-Terms%20-Conditions-2016-FINAL-v1.pdf It doesnt say you cant use any pre-made/purchased/free content.. but it has this (very weird) rule:

"Game files must be no larger than 30MB – BAFTA will not accept files any larger."

And thats imho something @epic should look at, and contact bafta to say how silly that rule is.

I totally agree here with luos. A decent material built in material editor with a couple textures can come quite close 20-30 MB easy. So you wouldn't be able to make nice materials unless you use substance files which are very small. Most other assets like models a smaller but that just means you can make a good game but the materials can't look good?

Nahh, just packaging an empty ue4 project (close to) exceeds that limit :/

Depends on the rules of the tournament, some tournaments allow content provided, others demand you make everything yourself.

Which tournament are we talking about?
