Hi Unreal Engineers,

Imagine yourself in a burning desert where Sun reigns over the earth. Start using this desert kit to make your wishes come true!

Long description

Yet again we have pushed the barriers and created a realistic desert set to let you imagine yourself in a burning desert better than ever. An environment filled with dust and rocks.

Let the desert bow to your will and use it to create your dream world. Each asset is extremely tweaked to maintain a high level of quality and variation. Happy Deserting!

The transition from sand to rock is amazing!

Yep that was his secret tip/tool he was working on…#SecretTip

Thanks guys!

How performant is this btw? it seems to have a lot of details after all (but I guess that this is no biggie, since you would have hardly any other environment mesh in a desert)

On my 970 at 1080p, on a heavy scene it’s currently running at:

70 FPS with Landscape Tessellation.
80 FPS without Landscape Tessellation.

Numbers will change when it’s finished.

Spotted !

PS: sorry for spamming

@macoll, That’s spot on!

A preview of my WIP Modular Moving Dust Function for UE4 that can be placed inside any material and give it the effect of having dust moving on the ground, as if there is wind doing it. Amount, speed, scale, movement direction, opacity (per channel), color, shape, etc. can be controlled on the fly through the material instance. Watch on YouTube:

Never learned to properly link videos here ._.

@Maximum-Dev

The movie film button between the image and sketchfab button allows you to embed videos. =)

Yeah but that just puts the link itself here instead of a playable video. Like I’m exactly doing that below:

[video]https://youtu.be/f5_4TScgbu0[/video]

Not sure why it comes out as a link. :S

Strange. All I did was paste your link into the popup box.

@SE_JonF, Could it be that the forum software doesn’t like me? :wink:

Could be because you’re only a Legend, and not Visionary. The software likes frequent posters. =P

Challenge accepted. :cool:
Do posts in Off-Topic forum count? :stuck_out_tongue:
