    +1 i Agreed, Epic gave us a impressive (im still shocked at 3:00 spanish hour) a win-win move, I would (unles you get profit for that 5% of your games logically, this does count really) donate being you as developer, modder, mapper, contents or being a simple gamer from community. They deserve a great and big gratitude for that unexpected movement.

    Long live Epic!
    long live UT and Unreal!

    Thankyou for making a AAA platform which artists with little technical skills can use to make games. Hopefully the learning curve continues to be low.

    Any developer in the sense of a 'developer' was able to afford the $19. So far the UE4 $19 provided a barrier for youtube kids.
    The $0 thing opens the doors for millions of youtube kids, who after spending endless time in UE4 figuring out what dot product means, will publish 'blood spray kits' and so on.
    I can already see 99% of the market place content being warrior princess and dragon stuff. I mean this is going to happen.
    I do not consider myself elitist when I say that all those common people in the club will drag the quality down and UE4 will get a reputation next to Blender vs 3dsmax.
    I am a bit afraid of this.
    Funny thoughts.

    I started programming at the age of 12. This was 36 Years ago.

    What would happen if people like me starting to complain about people with not-so-much-experience?

    AAAAH! It's free! I don't know what to say! I bought it maybe 10 days ago... Thanks you, thank you, thank you! Now my friends are going to use it!

    A big thanks you from me, and many other developers around the world.

    It's no different - it was never much of a "barrier", if I was an 9 year old youtube kid I'd just ask my mom for €20 then unsubscribe.

    Who cares if kids want to try make games, it's great, everyone starts somewhere. If you don't want to help them on the forums or play their games, then don't.
    It won't stop larger game studios using the engine.

    You can't use the word "common people" without sounding elitist.

    Also, Blender has a great reputation.

    The fact that the process is very open with this engine, and the progress consistent, I have a lot of faith going forward.
    If they project to continue progress at the same pace, in addition to offering open access to licenses I think it's great.

    Do you consider that maybe this deal will mean more people might contribute to improving the engine for free?

    I don't think things are so clear cut, and I think it's an Epic move.
    Well the biggest benefit to me is modding, users sign up for a free UE4 account and hey presto you can allow them to have an editor. More people will contribute? Potentially, but if you're remotely serious about games development than $20.00 is nothing, so no I don't believe it will greatly expand "contribution" pools. A counter balance would be the influx of new developers when Epic are already stretched thin as is.

    We've had a lot of support and great interaction with Epic thus far, as long as that doesn't change then I'm all for.

Now I think there will be way MORE people on the forums asking dumb questions, posting their uber MMORPG projects and it will be harder to find interesting information or project/projects. Hope I'm wrong and the quality of this great UE4 community won't decrease.
    I think the initial influx will be information overload ... but eventually it will settle down and the quality will go up. I agree with not having a problem paying the $19 ... but I guess only time will tell how it goes.

    I am kind of neutral ... excited to see what is going to happen ... a little nervous because of have been through something similar before with another game engine ... slightly overwhelmed because of the influx of new users ... I am kind of going Ninja on the forums now ... until things settle down. 8-}
