Is Visual Studio 2013 necessary to write code for Unreal Engine, or is it just recommended?
I looked it up, and it was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE for me.
If I choose a blueprint template for my new project, can I still write code for the project? Because sooner or later I may run into something that blueprints can’t solve.

Yes. Just add code when you need to.
That makes it a lot easier
