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"

Modified version of Unreal Engine 4.

Hello guys!

When they say "... a modified version of Unreal Engine 4 was used":

  1. ... what does that mean?

  2. ... which has been modified

  3. ... how was it modified?

  4. ... why was it modified?

  5. ... can I modify it?

For example, Days Gone: "... the game uses Unreal Engine 4- a modified variant of the game ..."

Product Version: UE 4.18

  1. It means someone has obtained the UE4 source code and made changes specific to their needs

  2. Which source has been modified will be specified by the modifier -- they obtain a specific version of UE4 to change

  3. Those who modified it are the only ones who can explain how, but in some way they changed the source

  4. Same as 3: the why is up to the modifier, but they did it because UE4 didn't provide what they needed out-of-the-box

  5. Yes you can, but you shouldn't unless you absolutely must

Check out this link (https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/ue4-on-github) and if all goes as it should, you can have the UE4 source code in a matter of minutes. If you ever want to do client/server development, you will need to use the engine source anyway, so it's good to have access. You won't need to make changes per se, it's just that building a server requires the source code.

Just be warned that you are opening Pandora's box. ;)
