do either of those packages include hosting ? Because i feel when you take the server setup and bandwidth , along with hardware maintenance that the prices are very reasonable.

Also on the aspect of asset stores , there are platforms like turbosquid and the like that you can sell assets from , without having to burden the devs with having to set up a complex store. You could tag it with HeroEngine Ready (even include scripting for characters) and then make a forum post here linking it.

Yeah prices ar reasonable.. but here is problem with new coders we are studio with 50 members and if we must learning new language is for idea hard used new technologies with closed commubity. Here is problem with only 99 members :-/. We prefered idea about free version where is training great community.

Hmmm can you know unity asset store? Thats good idea about this asset store.

The HE devs came to us and asked us for assets to make a store with. We pretty much didn't have time, energy or ability to do so. So there was no one to make the assets.

They do offer the entire HJRef model kit which has a ton of assets for I think like 4k.

For the most part you can get assets from other stores, and be able to rework them with minimal work and have them be perfectly ok in HE. You have to change the image formats, change the any off positioning, and sometimes do grouping in the models. Then just export it for Hero. I do it all the time works just fine.

In regards to something like Unreal pricing, it's a bit harder with HE engine cause as pointed out, they have server costs to manage, bandwidth, support on said servers, parts replacement, cooling and power costs all to cover.

When you look at their pricing and then look at the cost for a 4 server cluster on hosting it's cheaper than you could ever get. But they get discounts cause of scale and get to tap into cluster power of less servers but stronger ones for more people.

If you had to pay for 4 servers along with unreal it would make HE look cheap.

The other option is talk to the HE devs about source, then you can run your own servers, and have any amount of people around.

Well they provide a fair few pricing options , but maybe contacting support about a 50 man license might be something you can do. Or you could have 5 worlds at 10 licenses each. Or if you can afford 50 people on staff maybe you should be looking at buying a source license.

You can actually have more than 99 people registered to access your world, but only 99 can ever be active at a time, so if you're using the HE tot rain people, you could set up a schedule to bring in lots of groups at different times.
