  • 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

    3. things to improve your store front.
    1. A shopping cart Please
    2. A series of banners like GOG or steam so I can browse multiple items at once and not have to scroll up and down huge title screens it makes browsing a real chore.
    3. If you are going to have a sale post the discount. People are more likely to buy if they realize that something is 25% 50% or 75% off and do not have to do the math to figure out the discount. That is market place 101. every major retailor does this. When people shop they have what they call an Anchor point. An idea of how much they think an item is worth. If they believe they are getting a fantastic bargain they may just buy on impulse. Your current sale does not list the percent discount requiring people to do the extra math to figure out the value. Most shoppers simply will not take the time, look at the price and leave.

    I've been looking through this post searching for 'wishlist' as i think it's quite crucial for a store of any kind. A lot of people actually mentioned it, but it was never seen as a priority.
    Can we add this point to the 'updates the community wants most'? Wishlists in stores are equally important for users (bookmark products to buy them at a later point, when the user has enough money or the price drops (sale)), and creators (keep track of how many people are interested in a product, then adjust pricing (or put product on sales)).

    Agree. Looking, for example, at current FreeForTheMonth assets, you definitely can already see a drop in new Ratings in the same time span.
    Makes sense, one click on the rating stars vs submitting even the shortest review with text and title and rating and who knows what else = significantly less engagement.

    It should feature both - the previous quick and easy rating + an option to enter text.
    Preferably with a requirement to leave a text review when someone rates an asset with the lowest amount (as there's nothing more annoying than a 1-star rating with not as much as an attempt to contact the author and communicate what issues there might have been).
    Came here to request this. Both simple ratings and word reviews should exist really...
    A lot of the time i just want to leave a rating to show that i'm happy with my purchase. I really don't want to have to write a review each time, im quite certain than there will be way less ratings left on packages with how it is now (perhaps that was the intention...)

    I would like to be able to filter out owned items and/or adjust the number of items per page. Every month, I end up scrolling through 12+ pages to see if I missed anything new. Not specifically marketplace but filtering the vault by type (plugin vs template vs content pack) and compatibility (checkbox for all compatible with 4.23, or 4.22, etc) would be nice.

    [Requested Feature] Category Filter


    Hey guys, would it be possible to add an extra filter system to the marketplace and the library so we can enable/disable certain categories of content when we are browsing the market place.

    e.g I'm doing a search in items for sale, but I don't want any results that land in the "music", "environmental" or "code plugins" categories to be returned/ displayed.

    Thinking some thing simple like row where each category is listed with a checkbox next to it so we can enable/disable results as and when we please.

    Thanks.

    The New items shortcut link between On Sale and Vault on Marketplace page is gone and now the New items can be found only browsing down the marketplace main page... BUT the big question is.. WHY? For what reason exactly ?

    When content is denied form the marketplace, A few words as to why would be incredibly helpful for new devs trying to get in rather then just nothing. I realize that they have to get through alot but a simple, too expensive or lacking quality, or needs better description. like 2-4 words would be so helpful.

    Sure but it shouldn't be a requirement to leave any review. It's going to result in a bunch of packs with no reviews or 1 or 2 reviews and that isn't a large enough sampling for anyone to know if the pack is useful or not. Imo there was nothing wrong with the old system. If I see a pack that has some reviews and its positive ones it definitely will sway me in buying something. As is it's a crapshoot.

    I don't know what you guys were thinking with the new review system. We can't leave a review without doing a write up now? What if you want to give a product a 5 star but don't feel like typing up a full review? All it's doing is encouraging people to not review products, and probably will increase the amount of troll reviews as angry customers are more likely to take the time to write something up where happy customers are not. Big thumbs down on that one.
