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"

regarding copyright of in-engine graphics and assets

As part of my job description, people are starting to expect I write a book. Since my main field of expertise has to do with the Unreal engine, I was thinking about making an instruction book about the Unreal 4 engine.

With the format I am planning to write in, I will have to take a lot of screenshots to detail the process on the topics I want to teach. Since the licensing FAQ didn't address my question (or at least, I couldn't find it), my question is; can I freely use screenshots of the graphical interface of the Unreal 4 engine, or should I apply somewhere to get permission to use these graphics?

Furthermore, can I use assets that are part of the basic content as part of the instruction or should I use original content where ever possible?

You're fine to take your own screenshots of the UI for your book project, and you can use the starter content in your examples (I'm assuming still just screenshots).
