    [PLUGIN] UnrealVoxel - blocky Minecraft-like infinite world + download

    Hey everyone,

    I want to share with You my version of voxel based Minecraft-like infinite world. I was inspired by John Alcatraz who did really great job making his prototype only with blueprints. I focused more on C++ instead to get the best performance. I create only the front faces from the outward voxels. I even manage to remove the chunk connections using the additional information shared between chunks.
    Two weeks ago You could follow creation process on my twitch channel (http://twitch.tv/Tefel) where I did almost everything from algorythmic point. During last two weeks I was improving graphics, effects, menus and also adding more functionalities and features.

    Toolkit avaiable on Sellfy 4.22!: https://sellfy.com/p/Ho2F/

    Download demo: http://bit.ly/UnrealVoxel

    Don't forget to check my Youtube Unreal Engine 4 channel. I upload there my work (tutorials and prototypes). Every single like and subsribe can help me to grow. Thanks!

    Enjoy!

    This is just small side-project, prototype made on my twitch stream (http://twitch.tv/Tefel) where people could follow a creation process. To make this more enjoable I was trying to be really close to the original Minecraft game. While it's looking similar to Minecraft, my intention was not to create a game similar to Minecraft but just challenge myself and check overall look of all additional Unreal Engine 4 effects.

    There is a lot of small things You can notice while trying this prototype
    - procedurally generated World with wide range of randomness (seed makes whole thing looks much different every time)
    - wind effect for the trees and all other custom elements like flower and grass
    - advanced materials with normals, displacement, shaders, shifting grass, removing tiling effect and adding additional 3D noises for sand and stones
    - advanced particles like falling leaves, birds
    - independent scene actors - the butterflies
    - cracking effect, destructible mesh effect
    - simple inventory based on UMG
    - savegame system based on C++ finding .sav files - simplicity 1 file = 1 game
    - more than 50 sounds for different type of voxel and tool using
    - menu system with GPU / CPU settings
    - additional options to make this thing more funny like rounded material for trees, BIGGER/SMALLER blocks etc.

    I decided to upload source code but it all will depend on people being interested. Some likes and subscribes can help me to grow my UE4 Youtube channel where I put a lot of effort recording tutorials and other UE4 related materials.

    Funny fact is that I have never played Minecraft but maybe I will

              Beautiful work. Can you share the material for leaves of crown tree, especially the wind for leaves of the tree? Thanks

                  You mean SimpleGrassWind or Panner node? Could you take a simple screenshot?

                        By the way this is not a game. It is only a prototype but maybe it should turn into the game? I am thinking about something like Harvest Moon with challanges of finding resources like water etc. I have also an idea how to change basic shape square to be something more unusual and not being Minecraft clone.

                              if i had a good pc... i would already have made a letsplay out of it XD
                              I sooo much love voxel games like this.

                              But its lagging extremly even on lower settings... Its horrible :c my blueprint clone is even faster.
                              Any ideas?
