Submission help

Would greatly appreciate some help on the asset submisson process.
Packing the project according to guidelines and keep getting responses like “declined, it is done wrong”
Not a single hint what exactly was done wrong. I don’t really want to clog the submission team with dozens of attempts, to try find out how to properly submit the assets.
Why not make a very simple basic tutorial instead of dozens of declines on probably just wrongly named single folder?

You need to place your package in a zip or rar file with the following folder structure:



AssetName
     |
     +--- AssetName.png

     +--- AssetName.uproject

Thanks a lot for help!
Any reason nothing of that is even mentioned in marketplace Guidelines?

I think there are some specification somewhere… but mainly when you download any other free project from the Marketplace you see that same structure, depending on contents category it may vary. I have added some more that occurred me later.

It is also good to name assets like:

MI = Material Instance
Mat = Material
SM = Static Mesh
SK = Skeletal Mesh
Dif = Diffuse Texture
Nrm = Normal
Spec = Specular

Personally I prefer, the following:

Concrete_Floor_01_MI
Conrete_Floor_01_Mat
Door_Rusty_01_SM
Door_Rusty_01_SK
Door_Rusty_01_Nrm

Though, some start the name with the type, like:

MI_Conrete_Floor_01

The Marketplace just want that at least your stuff follow the same rule for naming convention, while some like the items being prefixed others like it suffixed with labels. Just don’t use two or more conventions with your items and you should be fine during submission.
