Opinion on Epic's Unreal Engine 4 Marketplace: Issues

I want to start by making it very clear that I think the marketplace team is doing great and that Stephanie Markoff has been absolutely fantastic to work with.

On September 3rd, 2014, the UE4 Marketplace was launched. I released my first asset on the marketplace on June 30th, 2015.

A lot of people come to me for advice about selling on the marketplace, as well as my thoughts and opinions on the marketplace. I have heavily experimented with the marketplace as a seller, a buyer, and an overall annoying member of the Unreal community.

I decided to post my general concerns on my blog to hopefully spark some discussion, as well as having a page to link to when someone asks me my thoughts instead of reiterating my opinions.

Updating UE4's Steam SDK

This document serves as a guide for updating the Steam SDK used by Unreal Engine 4. At the time of this writing, Unreal Engine 4 uses version v1.32 which is over a year old. Please note that you should only need to update the Steam SDK if you need newer features of the Steam platform, such as better Steam Controller support.
