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"

It seems that UnrealGameSync still needs engine's Source folder to deliver a precomiled build

UnrealGameSync tool actually requires Engine to have Source folder even when Precompiled zipped build is getting synced. If Source folder is not on disk, UGS will sync it automatically.

It seems a bit counterproductive to me. Whole point of using UGS is delivering precompiled engine to the content creators and having Source folder on their disk that alone takes over 10GB seems redundant and heavy especially for Indie developers.

Is it normal? Are there any plans on improving this?

1 answer: sort voted first

I solved this by delivering InstalledBuild to the team. We change engine extremely rarely (for now) so we don't need content creators to sync source files or compile engine. I have two folders - one with source-built UE4 and one with InstalledBuild produced libraries. We have virtual streams set up to only sync source to engineers and installed build to artists.
