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"

Custom (Asset Included) License

Hello,

I have recently bought the asset here: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/conifer-forest-collection

However upon downloading the asset I've noticed some custom license added to it, explicitly requesting credits in the game. However I know that all assets bought on the marketplace fall under Unreal's marketplace license and DO NOT require credits in the game's credits.

And as per the UE legal: Quote: "2.2.g Products distributed through the Marketplace are licensed only under the Unreal Engine EULA, which is not superseded by custom licenses publishers include in their products’ distributed files. "

My question was, the forest we bought falls under the UE EULA and NOT the custom license included with the assets, right? So we don't have to provide credits in our game for using the forest am I right? Since this is the reason for using the UE marketplace in the first place, high quality models and we don't have to provide credits for a ton of assets that can become cumbersome at a point.

Thanks & regards!

Product Version: UE 4.18

You are correct - usage falls under the UE EULA, not whatever was included in the asset pack. I'll have the Marketplace team look into that one.

Thank you very much for the confirmation! It is all I need to know, that the UE EULA overwrites everything.
