Overview:
A small pack, that contains some models of books and magazines. Each type will have closed state and opened. Some of the models will have half-open state. Pack will also include some textures for each type. Materials for those books will support oldness, burned and torn effects, so u can make ur books to fit the game atmosphere.

I’m currently working on new models and materials, so everything you see in the video is just a preview. Something may be different in release.

I’m planning to set the price on 5$(If Epic will accept, of cource), but if I add more stuff then I expected, the price will be 10. Anyway, any price or pack suggestions are welcome :slight_smile:

Made more books to choose from.

Btw, maybe anyone knows, why there are that weird shadows on the books? It only appears, when they lay on a surface :frowning:

just throwing this out there is your demo level set up with dynamic lighting or static lighting i had similar issues with things prior to changing my level to dynamic

Thanks, that helped :slight_smile:

Btw, use commas, its a bit hard to understand you.

yeah, sorry about that. been typing english for 26years and still forget the small things :frowning:

This is great! I’m definitely on board to get this! As a writer of Unreal Engine books, if you need any covers or anything - I’d love to give you the front / back covers of my Unreal Engine book to add an extra cover to your collection if you’d like!

Keep up the great work! :slight_smile:

Here is the new video, that shows material setup from construction script. You can setup the book u like pretty quickly. I also planning to add Randomize function.

Looks great! Can’t wait for the release: As soon as it’s out, It’s a day-one purchase from me! I can’t wait to put my book into my game :stuck_out_tongue:
