        Just a little question. Is it okay to use these models for an unreal engine 4 powered game?

        One more question: Is it okay to retopologize the meshes (ex: characters or environment assets) for Unreal Engine 4 games as well? or does it violate something?

        Of course, if I modify anything I won't release it publicly or anything. I only want to use it accordingly to the license.

                I know seeing a project die is hard but thanks everyone at Epic Games for letting Paragon leave on through the community.

                      Thank you!! This is great! I always wanted to play Paragon and was so busy with development that I never got the chance to do more than like 1 practice match. I was so disappointed to hear it was shutting down because I know everyone at Epic put so much love into it.

                      That said, I am SO excited to dissect these assets and see what I can learn.

                      Ironically though, I still don't get to see the one thing I've been dying to check out since the livestream a couple years back: Sparrow's hair shader!!
