Description


Volumetric Cloud system procedurally generated with artistic controls on the shapes and fine details. You can set up to 3 different layers of clouds, each one with a different cloud type and wind strength and speed. You can customize shadowing and colors as fix parameters or by curve parameters. Sky Sphere BP replacement for driving Sun and Moon trajectories both based in calendar with latitude and longitude settings.

Package is intended for high-end machines and for cinematic production. Lowering several settings you can get higher performance, in detriment of details, for playing games. The map from the video below, when running as standalone application with 32GB RAM FX-9370 at 3.6 GHz with GTX 1080 at 1683GHz base clock, easily achieves 120+ FPS in HD and Full HD.

Recommended Hardware for gaming: 4GB RAM Graphic card like GTX-970 or RX-580.

Important/Additional Notes: when loading the demo map for the first time, takes a long time to compile all shaders, it varies depending on the computer speed, once done you click on BP_CloudscapeSeasons and click on the Refresh checkbox control. It might work for PS4 and Xbox, but it was not tested yet and there is no ET for this still.
