All further updates for this project will now take place on the thread in the Marketplace forum:
UPDATE: COMING SOON TO THE MARKETPLACE!!!
Thank you guys so much for voting for me! This system will be coming to the marketplace very soon! Obviously I’m very excited to be announcing this!
I have two people from this forum to thank for providing some of the advanced parallax code in this forum: Ehamloptiran for the parallax occlusion code, and caner_ozdemir for the iterative parallax material setup. Here’s the POM thread where they contributed. If you see these people, make sure to thank them!
Once again, thank you guys so much! I’ll be making a new thread in the Marketplace forum very soon and provide further updates over there! Peace!

I’ve been working on a system to generate tile variations using a single tile mask and normal map at 2562 pixels each, and a noisy grayscale “tile map” at 2562 pixels (or less). The system has plenty of features, including a glass shader with Subsurface Scattering and parallax distortion on the grout texture, a dual-color algorithm that lets you turn one texture into two parameterized colors, emissive settings for glowing titles, tons of support for tiling options (including rectangular tiles, stretching, and dividing), and a cheap falloff occlusion to hide the grout lines at oblique angles. The entire system is scalable, so all of these features (and more to come) can be turned off to save instructions.
I’ve already made 20 presets with this system, but I plan on making at least 50 good ones before releasing it all on the marketplace. It will include all assets, including masks, normal maps, and uncompressed tile maps, as well as the master material and 50 preset instance materials. I’ll also include a user guide and tutorials to help you make your own tiles with this system. In the future, I plan to incorporate texture overlays for the tiles (useful for bricks and scratches), using maps to use solid and glass tiles, maps for metallic tiles, and more.
I’m thinking of selling this for $15. Are you guys interested?
