So I just wanted to make a quick announcement about a new policy we have for our submission process. As some of you may already know, we’ve recently updated our mannequin from the blue guy to the new silver guy in 4.8. Since significant changes have been made to the model and skeleton of this we’re now making the requirement that all submissions that are using the UE4 mannequin for any reason must use the 4.8 mannequin.
This includes: Animations, rigging weapons, character packs rigged to the Epic skeleton, any mannequins used for scale or in a showcase map and your screenshots.
If you are making something for marketplace or have sent something in please start making these changes and send them over to us. I know this is a new change and that some of you might have to do a bit of work to adjust your packs for this but we are currently working on a conversion guide to help you along with this.
Please note that this also extends to old submissions, if you currently have something on the Marketplace using the 4.7 mannequin or skeleton please send me an updated version of your files and screenshots. You can send those files here: firstname.lastname@example.org. I know some of you have already done this and we will be reach out to people individually as well just to be sure we got everyone.
For all animation packs, please note that your pack will not be considered compatible for 4.8 unless this change has been made.
If you guys have any questions about this please either message one of us here, ping this thread or send us your questions here: email@example.com
