Staggart Creations Updates

Dynamic Effects extension is now available

This extension adds a decal-like system that allows the water surface to be displaced and its foam and normals to be modified.

In practical terms, it means particle systems, trail renderers and static meshes can be used to influence the appearance of the water.

Stylized Water 2 is now available

The original Stylized Water Shader asset released back in 2016, and has seen a number of updates, including a complete revamp in 2018.

Tree billboards added to the Fantasy Adventure Environment

With the intention to make the tree assets better suitable for open landscapes, version 1.0.3 will add billboard LODs. This will allow users to have much more trees in their environments, at a much smaller performance cost. Billboards will maintain the same wind animation as the actual tree, which makes pop-in less noticeable. Color changes made to the trees, through their Substance material, such as branch...
