  • The Unreal Marketplace Improvement and Feedback Thread

    So now that the rating system has been included what else is everyone looking to get out of the Market Place. I think we're at a good place where we as a community can lay out our wants and desires for how the Market Place can best place to buy and sell assets.

    For me the biggest issue is the lack of control that creators have over prices and updates. This really makes the marketplace come off as hulking and inflexible. Hopefully this kind of flexibility and control can be implemented sooner rather than later as competition in the Market Place picks up and we have to respond instantly to new packs that might price themselves under what's already there. Moreover updates take way too long and some users have begun considering using gum road as a backup so that they can supply their supports with updates now rather than sooner. This is completely backwards.

    What does the community think? What is necessary for the Marketplace to be improved? Everyone should post their requests and I'll keep them updated here at the top of the thread so that Epic can keep track of what updates the community wants most.

    • Flexible Pricing Controls
    • Disproportionate Pricing to Quality Regulation By Epic
    • Incorporating Updates Sooner
    • Creators Can Set Items On Sale
    • Mandatory Videos & Demos for Items on Sale
    • Game Type Asset Usage Limitations
    • Marketplace Exclusivity vs. Origins
    • Mandatory Blueprint Previews
    • Model Viewer
    • Content Streaming For Previews
    • Sub-Categories For Searching More Specifically
    • Ability to Sell Individuals Items vs. Bulk
    • Submission, Voting, Content delivery, and General Response Times are Excessive
    • Market Place Voting Integrated Into The Unreal Launcher
    • Local-Currency Pricing
    • Statistics
    • New Ratings for Every Major Update + Ability to View Ratings for Previous Versions
    • Graph Showing Average Score Per Version Update
    • More Detailed Selling Stats
    • Ability to Leave Comments on Reviews
    • Content Providers Maintain Free Access to their Products

    Hello everyone, i have been browsing on the market place for UE4 looking at the environmental section all so very beautiful assets, but i notice it is all a bit messy 8K hear 4K there low Polly it is all very mixed, i would love to see all photorealism together, 8K together 4K together low Polly together, it would really benefit everyone, if someone want to work with 8K wouldn't have to find a needle in a haystack. Someone else wants to work with low Polly, all low Polly together, someone else want to work with photorealism, photorealism would be all together, if we all got a telephone white pages and all the names was not in alphabetical order, all jumbled up example if the telephone white pages the alphabet was in a computer keyboard order like this q, w, e, r, t ,y, u, i , o, p, a, s, d, f, g, h, j, l, k, z, x, c, v, b, n, m if the telephone white pages was in that order i be forever finding anything i through the dam thing in the bin.

    A subforum for each marketplace item.

    I think it's a balance that Epic will have to continue to manage. It isn't recent either, ever since the beginning there's been an effort to ensure quality content. Now with more sellers than before it can be a bit more difficult, but speaking as a buyer and not a seller I definitely wouldn't want the UE4 marketplace to become a store where finding quality content is like looking for a needle in a haystack. And I don't think Epic wants it to become like that either, which is why the free content rotation is specifically looking for high quality content which I think will encourage more sellers to strive for higher quality content which is a win for all. =)

    This is positive scenery.
    I understand that it could be good for sellers in short-term in case of significant compensation from Epic. But also I have concern about potential dumping rise in long term.

    You have to understand the demographics of Unity asset buyers.
    The type of buyers, their regional social struggles, and the kind of projects they're working on... then you will understand why their asset store is the way it is (and why I left).

    It's a market quite different from developers using Unreal.
    Majority of projects in Unreal won't have much use for free models anyway simply because most won't fit art direction.
    And "free" is actually paid for, Epic is paying creators for doing this. And these free assets won't stay free forever.

    Hi guys, a couple words about why free content rounds are not good for content creators:

    Bad example Unity store - there too much of cheap\free content and price damping - so in case of good but high priced packages many peoples wrote comments like - "omg it's too overpriced and have a one bug (and don't have button make all autogood) don't buy, use cheap\free XXX instead!!" (and this comments have marked as 666 peoples like it). Unity assetstore customers community seems really toxic in this case. It would be sad if marketplace community will go this way.

    Because of it we have stopped on doing assetstore packs.
    For example our Landscape Auto Material have really nice instrument pack (we have made Foliage Paint, UE4 Style grass in Unity!) but really poor sales.

    When I buy new assets sometimes a lot at once it would be nice to get a shiny blue dot or some color meaning it's new, like the orangey dot with updates in the library so don't need try find it. Also having some kind of adjusting bar with labels to group products would be helpful eg. Landscapes, Materials, Animations, 3D Models etc. I like organization, wishlist would be nice also

    I would love to see the ability to sort items by Rating / Amount of Ratings. Given the sheer amount of items in the marketplace, it's hard to quickly find the most popular assets in the store.

    • Email notifications of comments on the Marketplace would be wonderful. Or any other system really. I can't scroll through a bunch of old comments to see if people replied every day. It's annoying and easy to miss new comments by doing this. Seems like a no brainer to want to have the developers able to respond quickly to customers.
    • Why can I only release a code plugin for the latest 3 versions? That's less than a year's time of releases. I can't help but feel customers are being ignored by only being able to release for less than a year's worth of Unreal versions.

    Sales. There should be a "Sort By" option for the Date when products went on sale. When you browse the section again in a couple of days you want to be able to quickly find products that went on sale since your last search - rather than have to scroll through all pages of things you've already seen with their current discounts.

    It's a minor thing, but if you already know the name of a product on the market, and type it into the searchbar, the website just comes back with a load of unrelated junk.

    For example, type 'sky' ( and press enter ), and you'll get products with 'sky' in the name. But type 'ultra dynamic sky' and you'll get junk. Also type 'ultra', see one of the options that comes up in the list, click it, and get junk...

    Just an observation...

This is very discouraging and tedious, please fix this issue.
    They are already aware of the issue and are fixing it. This happened because they are introducing new features that will be launch soon and they are likely to only affect creators for now, not sure it affecting everyone.

    I'm not stoked that the default sort order for search is "new to old" either. Some kind of popularity or search term ranking would be better. Even "most recently updated" would be better than straight "release date".
