    Please don't race to the bottom. Sell it at what you think it worth.

      Hey everyone, I'm one of the creators of Ira. We've used the toon shader model for a long time but wanted to move over to a system that use the base engine. Over the last few years I've been developing a way to do everything the Toon shader model does but natively.

      After a lot of work I've recreated the toon shader model via post process in a way that I have not seen anyone do before. It does everything the Toon shader model does with some minor limitations, and I've overcome the major road blocks. Such as lack of fog, bloom, multiple shading models on screen at once, and multiple colored light contributions. I've even tied it all into a visual style actor that makes things very easy to implement and use. Basically all the main things that stopped us from using the post process route in the past have been overcome. I'd like to offer my system on the UE4 asset store and I was wondering if any would be interested in such an asset? I just know there are a lot of people like us out there that need the toon shaders functionality, but don't want to compile a custom engine build, worry about future support down the road, or have to deal with hacky material systems that are hard to use / are full of limitations. I'm open to hear people's thoughts or questions on this.

      Here are some pictures of the shader in action.

        Hey everyone. It's about the time again to ask for a new engine version, but doubley important because I'm making a mobile game and the Google Play console requires you to build using API 26 which requires Unreal 4.21 or higher

          Sorry I didn't see this post. Forward rendering is a no go currently. I probably wont have this available until after Ira launches.

            Is it a technical reason or something else ?

              Hey everyone,

              I made a previous comment about android, and while I wait for a 4.21 + build, I am still working on my game. I upversioned to the 4.18 build, and I am now getting this error on the toon material

              Click image for larger version  Name:	0.PNG Views:	1 Size:	297.1 KB ID:	1618062

              As you can see, I don't even have anything plugged into the shader and I'm still getting the issue, but I get the same issue when things are plugged in as well. The error implies something is wrong on the engine side? I'm not an engine programmer so I'm not sure and would appreciate any form of help as it doesn't seem like too big an issue and I just lack the knowledge to fix it.

              I would like to add this is only a problem when it comes to android builds, which is what my game is on. Every previous version of the toon shader worked fine on android until now.
