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"

What is Unreal capable of? I NEED HELP!

First off I have experimented with some other programs and I know very little about game design So forgive me if these are stupid questions. I would like to create a small game and Unreal Engine seems like a way I can do that. Ive played around with it some and would like to know some of the basic information.

  1. Could you create a big title game such as Battlefield or Gears of War or is it just meant to create games such as Rust, Ark, etc. ( I don't intend creating a big game i'm just curious what you can do with Unreal.)

  2. How do you make your game available for sell? ( I know Epic gets 5, however I cant seem to find where the games are sold.)

  3. When making a game do you make the whole game in one project and just keep adding new levels or do you make separate projects and then combine them in someway?

Thanks for any information I get back I know these questions are probably not worth answering because they are so simple.

Quick answers. 1. Yes you can use the engine to make a big title game. UE4 is built off the the technology of UDK which made many hit titles such as bioshock, couple of batman games and I believe dishonored also. It is a lot of work however.

  1. You are responsible for distribution of your game whether you can get a publisher to do it for you or search for places that will host your game (there are some free ones) or even steam.

  2. All game files are places into one project. There are many ways to build a game such as level streaming or level loading. each has pros and cons so read the documentation carefully to decide which way is the way you want to go for whatever you intend to build.
