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"

In my opinion, the right answer will depend on a couple of factors.

  • Which platforms are you targeting?

  • Which other tools do you need to use to make assets for your game?

  • In which OS are you most comfortable with?

If you are building a game specifically for Apple's App Store, then you will need a Mac to do so. If you need to target Linux you will probably want to test your game in a machine with that OS.

Now, also in my particular opinion and experience, Windows has the best development experience when using UE4. It is nicely integrated with Visual Studio and several asset building tools only work on Windows as well. It should be clear that Epic and the community is doing a ton of work to make Unreal an OS independent tool, but at the end, it all comes down to your personal preferences and needs.
