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"

Best Linux Distro. working with UE4 16

I'm in the process of a new computer build specifically for UE4. I'm burned out on Windows. I need recommendations for the most efficient Linux Distro to solve my problems. At this time I am not an experienced coder. Thanks to all for guidance,

Product Version: UE 4.16

For UE4 I strongly recommend sticking with the most recent Ubuntu LTS (which at the moment of writing is 16.04).

I would recommend Ubuntu if you really want a Linux distro, but you'll have to recompile the whole engine every update, which takes over 5 times the space as a launcher build. It's also not very stable, the Linux support is mostly just for shipping your game.
