DISTANCE MESHES

Want to add a detailed background vista, but you don't want the cost? Use Distance meshes, they are optimized geometry that are purpose built to match the playable landscape. A great way to extend your world far into the horizon without affecting performance.


The Alpha Brushes / Distance Meshes are generated from Real-World Height data which is then texturized to create realistic high resolution results.


This Moon Pack contains 4 Distance Meshes for background mountains (See Screenshot above).


PROCEDURAL SPAWNERS

The pack includes Procedural Spawners for quickly scattering Rocks on slopes. Rocks are optimized and created using the latest Photogrammetry techniques.

BRUSHIFY LANDSCAPE AUTO MATERIAL

The fastest way to build detailed fully playable landscapes. This material allows users to paint multiple biomes with ease across huge landscapes. Each biome is it's own Automatic Paint Layer. There are 11 landscape layers for you to choose from including Grass, Desert, Forest, Snow, Beach, Dunes, Mud, Craters.


Simply apply this material to any landscape and it will be automatically textured and covered with optimized Rocks/Grass which match that biome.


Supports Runtime Virtual Texturing (RVT), Parallax Occlusion Mapping (POM), Tri-planar mapping, Tessellation/Height, Roughness, Reduced Distance Tiling Feature, 3 stage Level Of Detail system (Far, Medium and Near), optimized Shader overdraw and Flow mapping.


The entire shader is fully modular in design and functions can be removed and customized in order to streamline the system to your project.


This pack comes with a playable level with a complete ready-made landscape. Everything you see in the screenshots is provided, along with the powerful shaders and workflows shown in Brushify tutorials.
