    Will searching content via the UgcService.Instance.GetContentsAsync method count against the Download (Egress) quota?

    Also, since deleted content seems to still be searchable, will they count against the storage quota?

    Hi Thut,

    Currently we soft delete content in the beta and give access to the developers to search through it. Before we start charging when we enter full release we'll give developers an option to hard delete content as to not count toward the storage/egress quota.

    Hope that answers your question!

    Thank you, that is good to hear. Do you know if the download quota only counts when you have DownloadContent = true for a call to GetContent, or does a simple search of UGC without a full download count? Also do thumbnail downloads count towards the quota?

    Hey Thut,

    Only downloads will be charged thus searching through your game's content won't be charged. When you download content it includes the thumbnail so that will be included in the download charge.

    Hope that answers your question
