The Hammerhead Shark Pack comes with a procedural spline animation system that produces dynamic acceleration, turning and rolling along splines. The Sharks mouth also optionally opens when it nears the player.


The package includes a swimming animation, an idle animation, Left & Right Poses & a mouth open pose used for blendspace animations. It comes with 4 LODs, Dry & Wet Materials, and a range of adjustable blueprint settings allowing maximum customization.


The Material parent has been planned in advance to allow maximum tweaking so you can adjust the shark's color with complete control.


Additionally, a demo scene has been included with Underwater PostProcess Settings, Caustic Lighting, Fog, & Depth of Field, along with many Sharks with their paths set up, demonstrating what can be accomplished with the Shark's Spline Blueprint.
