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

This asset pack contains a variety of flags for your game or archviz project.

The assets are normal static meshes, the animations are pre-calculated using cloth simulations, and playback is done trough the asset's material.

Because of this, the flags have a minimal performance impact, and do not require any additional project setup!


Each flag comes with a set of template textures.

The wind strength of the flags can transition between windless (a resting pose) to calm, to heavy.

This value can be blended between.
