The Challenge

The 51World geo-cloning institute focuses on smart cities and smart realty. According to Wang Shunji, Head of SOP at EC (Earth Clone) Department, since 2018, the team has been doing the digital restoration of scenarios based on the Unreal Engine 4 development environment. The long compilation time of UE4 was a significant problem at that time, and the team consumed a lot of labor costs by pulling the code by hand.

After the development began to expand on a large scale, Shunji realized they must find a solution for the time-consuming development.

 

How Incredibuild Crunched It

Before 51WORLD started working with Incredibuild, the team’s stand-alone compile-time without SSD exceeded 1 hour. Thanks to Incredibuild, they managed to reduce the build to around 30 minutes.

The 51World team researched a few solutions before trying Incredibuild. Due to their need for higher performance for C++ compilations and Shader compilations, the decision to go with a powerful accelerator was finally made.

Today, more than 30 developers at the SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) team and the Transportation Department at 51World use Incredibuild to optimize quality and achieve better time-to-market windows.

“I was impressed by Incredibuild’s meticulous product design and the professional customer-care services of the China Team. In addition, in the last two updates, it is clear that version optimization has become even bigger and faster than before.”

The Bottom Line

Incredibuild significantly reduced the build time for UE4, doubling the build speed with just over 200 CPU cores on about 20 machines.
