I can't be the only one exited for World Creator 2 (a.k.a GeoControl) ???

Formally known as Geocontrol, World Creator is the next iteration in BiteTheBytes line of Terrain Generation tools and is actually looking like its going to be quite the spectacle when we finally get our hands on it.

Some Paraphrases I took from their main site:

  • UE4 Integration Q2 2016
  • Will come with SpeedTree implementation
  • Will come with royalty free textures from the lovely team at GameTextures.com
  • Tiled Landscapes, up to 32k
  • Oculus Rift Support :smiley: :smiley:
  • Register on their forums for a 30% discount code on World Machine 1 & 2
  • “World Creator 2.0 generates a 8192 by 8192 height-map within 0.08 ms”
  • Multi-threading
  • Real-time generation
  • Physics
  • Dedicated Artificial Generator
  • Erosion and Sedimentation
  • Natural water flow coming from springs
  • Users can write their own terrain filters and share them to the community
  • Impressive texturing system, will work similar to UE4 Landscape Materials
  • Tessellation, height blending, tri-planar mapping, parallax occlusion mapping
  • Import and enhance existing hight-maps
  • Multiple terrain types on one map
  • Only downside is that I can’t seem to find any indication that there will be tiled landscape support, I have only ever used GeoControl 2 so wouldn’t know :\

Looks interesting. Are they advertising any runtime generation for UE4?

I believe only of maps and foliage within the tool itself

I might actually pick this up. Need to know about tiled terrain export though.

Ok, bomb shell :smiley:

Tiled Terrains may actually be introduced!

Wow this looks awesome! I wonder what specific features the UE4 version gets. The fact you have more control over your terrain is a nice win for me. I will register on the website :smiley:

Have released it to the unity Market, will be coming to UE in a few months.

Some new videos from their Youtube channel showing the Unity tool features

looks awesome

I want this so badly I saw some of the demo videos for unity3d.

If they pull that off with Unreal 4. Then bite the bytes will be getting my money.

Looks like they pushed the UE4 addon back to Q4 2016? http://www.world-creator.com/buynow/#WorldCreator2ForUnrealEngine

hmpf… not so happy with that, but when you see what they have accomplished with the unity plugin I can be good with that

thank you for the heads up DP, i will be looking out for this.

the examples looks a bit “fractally” but probably that can be tweaked out. aswesome tool.

Hey everyone,

Please Chime in on this thread - LINK

Let Bite the Bytes know we want a World Creator 2 Plugin sooner. :slight_smile:

Sounds like they plan on opening preorders for World Creator 2 at the end of April 2016
