    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

The Procedural Nature Generator (PNG) is an editor code plugin that aims to assist the user by procedurally creating thousands of natural elements and actors over a landscape actor in just a few seconds, using your own assets. 


TUTORIALS AND OTHER VIDEOS


PNG also provides modifiers and other settings that let you create exceptions on the landscape for certain assets generation. For example, you can use trees and grass assets, but configuring the plugin to avoid locating trees in a defined area or height.

All the assets shown in the gallery and videos are from other asset packs and from the starter content.
