Mac laptop for using UE4?
First, I need to qualify that I don't plan to test on this crappy laptop, it would just be easiest to program on it. The specs are as follows:
Macbook Air (11-inch, Early 2015)
Processor 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB
Assuming that I hook up an external hard drive for the memory issues, would the rest of the specs be sufficient to run UE4? If not, any recommendations for a software (preferably free) to stream UE4 off of my competent desktop computer (Windows) even whilst off of the desktop's connected network so I can still do something on the fly with my laptop?
Idk about mac os itself and ue4 on it, but the specs.
Depends on a task and project size, but 4 gig ram would be an issue, you wouldn't be able to use anything besides ue4 and would be forced to restart engine every hour or so.
I worked for a long time on far worse of the laptop and it was ok, you always can dump down graphical settings of a play in editor, but if your game have a lot of assets, eventually they all would be loaded and you would be out of ram, virtual memory would kick in and everything would slow down a lot.
Blueprints would work really good, the memory is an issue.
