i’m thinking about paying for one month of unreal engine to test the waters, because i’m a serious noob when it comes to this stuff… i’ve messed around in Blender, Unity free, and even made maps for CS:S back when it was popular, so i’m not completely in the dark here. i’ve even spent a few hours teaching myself C++ from a book (i know, you can’t do much in just a couple of hours lol)… i realize that i’ll temporarily lose (until i re-subscribe) access to the marketplace, access to the Epic Github, access to regular updates, and the ability to publish games for profit, which i don’t think is a big deal for me… i understand the marketplace (similar to Unity’s Asset Store), the update releases, and the licensing. but i have to ask, what is github? what benefits does it provide? would i (a beginner) really need it that much? how is it different from the marketplace?
thanks in advance.
