Meshes and Materials:

Five types of freshwater fish that thrive in any stylized environment - featuring a reusable material with everything from low poly shading, WPO swimming animation, Fresnel highlights, and color parameters. Each fish Material Instance can be adjusted individually, or globally with the fish master Material Instance.

  • Bass
  • Bluegill
  • Trout
  • Salmon
  • Pike

Niagara BP Systems:

  • Flocking - Fish swim constantly, moving along a random path.
  • ClosedLoop - Fish swim constantly, along a defined path (Spline Tool).
  • Take-off (Chase) - Fish remain idle until approached, and swim only to avoid Players/Physics objects.
  • Take-off (Flocking) - Fish remain idle until approached, then swim along a random path (inside a Box).
  • Take-off (Spline) - Fish remain idle until approached, then swim along a defined path (Spline Tool).

Flightpath BP:

  • Includes the original Spline Flightpath system from Beefy Blackbirds / Butterflies assets.
  • Fishes remain idle until approached, accelerate, and come to a stop when they are no longer chased.

Technical Details
