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"

Serious Games / Military

As company, we make serious games such as military training and train simulations for the last 2-3 years. For current projects, we use Unity and other engines i can't give their name because we are under heavy NDA, but thinking about to start with Unreal Engine 4 for our next projects. We already talking with a company to integrate HLA/DIS to UE4 and making required preparations about it.

I work in this company as technical artist and lead the engine side of our current projects. We have couple of questions about licensing UE4 for military training, train simulations or other serious game projects we are about to get. As I see there are some restrictions about military training applications on EULA of UE4. If we want to use and license UE4 for serious gaming, especially for military training, what should we do about it? Do we need custom or enterprise license for it?

There is no restriction on UE4 under the EULA for military training - the restriction is on use in connection with live combat. Think of it this way - the EULA doesn't want the engine being used in a situation where someone might die.
