Hello /3/!I was wondering if any of you have any experience selling models in asset stores such as unreal's or Unity's, I'm looking to make a little bit of extra cash and i was wondering if any of you have done it before.
You'll be swimming in a sea of shit. You're better off publishing a few packs of free models, having a million people download them, and maybe having two people contact you for real work at a later on.
>>528619>You'll be swimming in a sea of shitReally? can you elaborate?
>>528620Any self respecting developer will produce their own assets, or will already have a library of their own assets to tap into.Your primary audience will be single developers and small teams (mainly students) looking to quickly prototype a game that will likely never see the light of day. This is a population that is fairly unlikely to actually shell out money for assets, unless they are desperate for niche where there does not already exist a body of free assets.Additionally, you open yourself to asset piracy and asset flipping concerns.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5svAoQ7D38kYou are best served by showcasing your talent with free packages, and then leveraging that exposure into a paying position or commission/freelance jobs.A safer arrangement for making a little extra pocket cash is to try to publish models on, say, the DOTA 2 workshop.Admittedly, if you do manage to tap into an in-demand market on the Unity/Unreal Asset stores, you have the opportunity to make quite a bit of money. However, the people that are successful in those endeavors are typically people who produce middleware, not models.
>>528666i see, Thanks for taking the time to reply back, i'm still considering uploading some assets into Unreal's marketplace just to probe the market, i don't expect to make a shit ton of crash, realistically i model primarily as a hobby, though i wouldn't mind making a living out of it since i actually enjoy doing it.
>>528666I've made shitload of assets for shitloads of different levels.Would it be worth packing them up and selling them for like 1 dollar so it's at least great value for money?
