I will not sugar coat it. Lumberyard is a mess.
Instead of making it easier to develop, it makes it harder for no reason. I cannot do the simplest things without crashes or errors or rebuilding of gems that rely on gems that rely on whatever.
As much as I wanted to like it, I can’t. I’m dismissing it because it hurts the production. For the sake of success of our next project I don’t mind paying a 5% royalty to Crytek I am switching to CryEngine 5. sorry amazon but your engine is a mess, and I got no time or a department of 100 IT professionals to solve all its issues.
I want to make fun experiences and I need a stable solution.
Decision taken after 1 week of wrestling with Lumberyard it will not be suitable for our team. I wish you good luck, catch me on Crytek forums.
