      Well done on adding a wishlist. However, if the wishlist is empty then the heart icon should be broken because it doesn't love anyone.

        How about including localized prices for the market place, as it is done for the Epic Storefront? Currencies discrepancies definitely impact sales, and being able to track devs location and offer regional prices could amount to greater sell numbers. Localized Pricing is already a thing in a lot of stores, why not at the marketplace?

          I'm sure somebody mentioned something like this earlier, but I'd like to chime in as well by requesting a Latest Update Date field for all marketplace products, so we'll at least able to see if some the products we use were updated since we last downloaded them.

          Another highly useful feature would be a Changelog tab. Since we already have a multi-tabbed interface with Description, Reviews, and Questions, adding another tab would be a fairly trivial task. While some sellers list or link their changelogs in the description field, this would standardize the feature for all of them and also prompt many of those who don't bother with it to list their changelogs online.

          For me personally, both would be high-priority additions, so please give this idea at least some consideration. Thank you.

            b1016103 - Speaking as a seller who's made (and still makes) several updates to my assets, I initially also wanted some kind of ChangeLog feature in the MP. But I slowly realized how easy it would be to abuse something like that, releasing many 'pseudo' updates only to give the false impression that the asset is actually being worked on... So maybe it's better this way, I don't know...

              I was going to post about this myself, I have been looking forward to this for a long time to see update changes be listed on each product I really agree with you and I'm so happy that they let you save favorite items now as well, however I will be honest 50 favorites is not nearly enough for a backlog, theres 100s of things in the marketplace and its growing every day.

                I agree with you, we really need a way to manage our vault content, for instance hiding things we no longer use, & adding our own custom categories to group different content.

It would be really nice when you are searching for new things to NOT see the stuff you already own in that list. It's particularly true for the free content. There's 20 pages of that and I have a lot of it already, so when I want to check for new stuff or just stuff I could use but haven't bought yet, a feature like "filter by not owned" would be real handy.

It's just that there are many times I'm browsing the discounts and I see 5000000+ products I'm not interested in from the same seller. If I know I don't want 'Orc Models' (No shade to any sellers) then I also don't want to have 5000000+ discounted 'Orc Models' from the same seller clogging up my search results.

The engine allows us to make content only plugins and building blueprint systems into them can be really helpful with cross-project migration and integration. Currently, we are limited to code projects in which the response from Epic was to "Make an empty code module" which seems a little deceitful to the end customer.

                  Another nice to have for the vault would be sorting options Name|Purchase Date|Size, ascending and descending.
                  Seriously so many good ideas, I agree with all of these! I'd be making use of every single one of these if they were implemented.

                    While I fully admit I may be missing something, I really don't think the potential for abuse is that great. Aside from the fact that you could do the same dirty tricks in the description section, one can also usually tell the state of the pack by the supported version, the number of listed assets, or even the comments on the seller themselves. I also don't see how it would be that easy to abuse the system without at least making some kind of an update in the first place. It's not like sellers will start claiming that they just added "100 new meshes" without a basis, and I doubt that dozens of minor bugfix logs will fool or persuade anyone.

                    Anyway, that's not a subject I thought about. I'm less interested in keeping track of how often a pack is being updated than the fact that I have no idea whether or not I have the latest version of the pack with all that it entails. I don't (and can't) keep the exact directory structure of the packs I buy, so I can't auto-update and have no idea whether I may be missing the new content, bugfixes, and so on until I manually re-download and compare them—obviously an enormous waste of time and bandwidth. Having some kind of a last update timestamp on the pack would at least help me with that, and having the changelog section would help separate routine version updates from content ones.

" I have been wondering this myself, why are you the first person I've seen even talking about this other than myself? It makes me feel like we're in some weird alternate reality where things don't make sense anymore lol

                        b1016103 - As long as there's no option to "sort assets" or "filter assets" by date of update while browsing the store, I guess I don't see a problem...
