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"

The Unreal Engine EULA allows you to use the source code directly.

I don't know how directly use of source code works, so can I copy and modify part of engine source code and paste it in unreal engine project?

Best regards

Under the EULA, you can use as much or as little of the Licensed Technology as you like, including parts of the engine code. The resulting product will be a Product as defined in the EULA.
