User Generated Content Management

Overview

User Generated Content (UGC) is a service that manages in-game content that has been created by your players. With UGC, players can contribute to the community as a creator by creating game items that can be downloaded by other players. The items can be a custom color for a vehicle, clothing for a character, or a new color for a weapon. Using this service, the creator can upload and then manage their content. Game Admins can upload an official preset to be used by the creator to create their own content, and can also manage user generated content, channels, and view a list of creators for the game.

How it Works

Game Admins can select items to be used as presets, which players can then modify. When a player creates a new design for one of the preset items, they can upload their design to be downloaded and used by other players that already own the preset item. Then when a player uses a custom design they’ve downloaded, that design will be visible to other players that interact with them in multiplayer games.

Configurations

You can create Types and Tags that can be used to configure and categorize user generated content. For example, a custom design for a car might have Vehicle as the Type and Body or Wheels as the Subtype, depending on the part of the car that’s customized. Tags could also include Car, Vehicle, Body, or other descriptors of the design.
