Probably you didn’t uncheck the checkbox “Include starter content” while creating creating your emtpy project (it’s on by default). If you uncheck this checkbox you should get an completely empty project.
trying to make html5 work so for testing i want very few assets to keep the size down.
even the blank project has a chair and table?, loads of materials, textures, blueprints, sounds and models.
so could we have it so a blank project is actually blank and has no assets at all?
