    The current license is for individual use with group or seat licensing still to come.

    Individually you can jump on and off of subscription but if you do it to often it can get costly if you do so with in an update cycle. For example you will loss access to the Marketplace so you could not only miss out on free example files but you could miss out on any free assets Epic gives away each month as part of the subscription. A free goodie package like raw Materials or a cool animation package would be worth a lot more that the 19 dollar subscription.

    Most of our team though is waiting out for the seat license with a few of use purchasing our own subscription but for us what will make the price worth it is the support that will be supplied behind such subscription.

    The flip side of it all is Epic has been doing game engines for 25 or so years now so I'm going to assume they know what they are doing long term to make keeping the subscription worth the cost as it is now we are all first adopters.

    To me it's worth the 19 bucks just to be around to see what happens next.

      I can download all sorts of textures & other stuff like swords, etc. that are not the defaults that the community makes? If so that would really help, That would take off at least 3 months off this project.

        Sure a mesh is a mesh and a model is a model and there are tons of free resources available with in the Creative Commons free to make use of.

        For example this is one of my favs

        I'm willing to bet thought, given time, that a lot of resources for UE4 will start popping up

            All those links were not from a UDK community, So as long as I have a subscription I can get them from anywhere, But if I don't have the subscription I can't get any add ons from anywhere else?
            And why are they called Mesh, Not Textures, I call them Textures. Does it matter?

              Sorry, but I dont understand your question

              You can just download one of those meshes, textures,... and then you just have to either directly import them into the UE4 or you will edit it in a 3d program. You don't need a subscription to download those stuff.

              mesh= object
              texture= picture

              UDK= not UE4

                Why does UDK not = UE4
                UDK stands for Unreal Development Kit while UE4 stands for Unreal Engine 4. Same thing, they are both used to making games. Why not just call one UDK 3 or UDK 4?

                So, I can download & upload all this stuff on to my UE4 even without a subscription?

                  When you say UDK it will be a little bit confusing to some users because:

                  UDK -> free version of the Unreal Engine 3 (no source code,....)

                  and

                  UE4 -> full version of the UE4

                  You are right that both are for making games, but they are completely different game engines

                  Yep, but I would recommend you to just use them in private projects, so not a commercial one, because otherwise you will have to check if those assets are copyright free

                    As in, I have to make sure that I download meshes & textures that are free to use if I sell my game?

                    Well for now, I can't download UE4 because I can't buy it right now, I just want to catch up on UDK3 right now. How do I download it? I don't see it on the list, So I'm guessing it is one of the downloads from February 2012 to 2014. Which one do I download as the last version that came out for UDK3?

                        i cant download it, keeps saying its corrupt, redownloading doesn't work.

                        "The UDK package is corrupt, please redownload (Exception when opening zip)."
