I am brand new to the Unreal Engine. While browsing tutorials for Blender, I came across an architectural rendering in Unreal and became very intrigued.
I just tried to install the engine but realized after everything downloaded that I actually installed the Launcher.
When I am expecting to install a program and something else installs, there’s a problem.
Is it possible to install the Editor without the completely unnecessary launcher program? I’m already very turned off from this experience.
After waiting for everything to install I found out I had to use the launcher to even use the program. Then even more time searching for a way to use Unreal without it.
I really just wanted to try out the engine and dig into tutorials, instead I’m scouring message boards to figure out how to use the editor without the launcher only to find that I would have to use messy workarounds to accomplish it. And I really don’t want to waste time compiling from source when I just want to test out the engine.
Setting up hurdles like this for new users doesn’t make any sense to me. Just let me download the engine and start learning and you will gain a long-term user.
