To add to my above quote,
I would just like to say that I am both impressed and honored to be apart of such a community which delivers in so many ways to each other from meaty engine updates like clockwork every month or less, to a willing and helpful community which is for the most part kind and understanding of every individual in the community whether big or small and to a open doors approach from Epic Games + partners/developers to/for the community.
Whilst I might appear to stamp my feet every now and again, I’m glad this engine exists and it enables indies to have such a powerful tool at their disposal. It’s amazing what’s been achieved in a small amount of time and I am truly amazed at what a decent engine it is. For our main project I’m glad I decided to make the swap, looking forward to spending the next couple of years with Unreal!.
It’s been interesting using UE4 after spending years with Unity, I am for all purposes pretty useless with Unreal 4 (as I never used UDK or UE3 for long either). But I’m sure I’ll get their one day.!
I am happy to see you are all enjoying the engine! I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of the great content people have created thus far and look forward to seeing what you are able to do with the editor in the future.
Everyone - thanks for all the kind words tearing up over here.
And thank YOU all for all your work in making this community great. I’m really inspired by y’all and humbled by all the awesome ways ways you help improve the engine and each other. We are proud to call you ours
Thanks Epic for releasing an amazing product. There is so much to learn and I enjoy every moment. I havent been playing games to much this year since I got this engine. UE4 is my game and the community is like multiplayer mode-maybe more like co-op. I appreciate all the knowledge shared here and I will continue to contribute and share anything that may benefit the community. Its really nice to see everyone at Epic actively checking in and offering words of encouragement and advice.
Also thank you Rama for the tips and being a good friend and inspiration.
