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"

Can I fork the Unreal Tournament Project to make something else ?

Can I fork the Unreal Tournament Project to make something else ? I would not use copyrighted assets, but adapt the existing code and blueprints to make another game. (code would not be shared with non UE4 licencee)

You are welcome to use UT code/blueprints in your own projects.

Since this question was answered, the code and content of Unreal Tournament has changed, as well as the EULA. Users are no longer allowed to use the content from UT to create your own software/game. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Well the original answer did say Code/Blueprints ... but thanks for the clarification Alexander.

I am assuming the Code/Blueprints are still allowed to be used?

I'm sorry to say that Alex is correct; Epic's rules changed including in regards to code/blueprints. In the EULA, Unreal Tournament Content definition includes code, and the license to use Unreal Tournament Content only includes working on the UT project.

Could you please clarify this further:

Can nothing from UnrealTournament repository can be used?

Can C++ code from the UnrealTournament repository be used?

Can we use assets (maps, textures, meshes, music, etc.) from UnrealTournament? (I think this one is a pretty obvious and reasonable "No".)

Can UnrealTournament blue prints (those which do not use/include assets) be used?

The restriction is in relation to code or content in GitHub UnrealEngine Network /UnrealTournament/Source or /UnrealTournament/Content/RestrictedAssets.
