    Asset Pack
    This product contains an assortment of Unreal Engine assets which can be imported into a pre-existing project of your choice.

This reed asset will make your Mediterranean/Island landscapes look more realistic and natural.


A total number of 30 unique meshes are used in different kinds of reed growth phases.

For the realistic wind animation a multi hierarchical implementation of the Pivot Painter tool is used.

This results that different plant parts have different animations. (leafs compared to the stem)



All plant parts are photoscanned separately and redesigned in a natural looking way.

An individually vertex paint for each part of a plant is helping to increase the realistic animation.


Performance Optimization:

All plant parts are modeled on their own and as compact as possible.

That results in less quad overdraw and less shader complexity.


Only one master material is used for all the plants.
