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"

Hi all, is it possible to append adding new elements to the renderer and physics to Unral Engine? I would like to learn graphics programming, and by the way try to add something to the engine.

Hello luki9914,

All of the source code for the engine is editable, but you'll need to download it from our Github repository. If your Epic account isn't linked to a Github account, you can find out how to get access here. After that, you can download the source and it'll all be available for you to edit as you please. As for editing PhysX, that may be a bit more complicated as we have our own implementation. There is a community made guide related to PhysX here that may be helpful.

Whenever you have something that you would like added to the engine proper, you can feel free to make a Pull Request on our Github repository to have the change looked and reviewed to see if we would like to merge it.

Hope this helps!
