I just downloaded and installed an interior environment package for UE4 from the marketstore. I don´t want to harm the guy who created this package, that is why I will not name the package. First of all, it is very well done and the demo levels look fantastic, so full marks for the designer. But are modular packages sensible in terms of performance? I don´t think so. The package consists of very small assets you can place in the level and combine with other assets to create an unique look in the editor.
As allready mentioned, it does looks stunning, but even the small demo map has hundreds of tiny assets. Sure, the designer wants to reach a lot of potential buyers and therefore creates one that offers the most flexibility and I can´t blame him for that, but I can´t imagine that this kind of level design is very optimized.
Well, I don´t really regret the purchase of this package, but I don´t exactly know what to do with it :-/ .
What do you guys think about packages which are highly customizable but have small bits and pieces?
