    Hi eyoli,

    Regarding closed meshes, I put this in the description under technical details:
    "Note: Big cliff meshes all have closed back sides to prevent lighting issues. For optimization purposes and also to make them usable, back sides are lower poly versions of front sides and are using the same texture space." This implies that texture wise they are not seamless and thus not really meant to be used as standalone 360 objects. Making them seamless would essentially require double the texture size. Someone else wrote to me that they were still able to use them as 360 objects by hiding some of the more obvious seams with smaller rocks. I think this might be the easiest solution for you as well.

    All the cliff textures are 4k. I don't think using 8k textures would be a good idea for a large majority of projects so I didn't make them in 8k. But I would be happy to send you my source highres zbrush meshes, of course. Send me an email to ales.cgmontreal@gmail.com. We can also discuss further possible solutions there. Thanks!

    Thanks! If there's no parameter already exposed to desaturate the base color you can add it to the master material. This way you will be able to get rid of the color information and keep only the value, so then you can multiply it by a custom color to apply a different color palette. It should be fairly easy to do - I can send you a detailed description on how to do it. Send me an email to ales.cgmontreal(at)gmail.com.

    Hi there,
    send me an email to ales.cgmontreal(at)gmail.com and we'll try to figure something out.

    Yes, the terrain sometimes loads weirdly when opened for the first time. It happens in all terrain related projects for me. Just close and reopen the editor and reload the level again and it should be fine. Let me know if this fixes it.

    For the planar reflections plane, it disappears when in game mode (shortcut G) or when playing, it's a debug representation of the plane. I usually hide it when working on a scene and unhide it when I'm done.

    I think adding another modules would make the asset more versatile and would make the process of creating cliffs /scenes easier and diverse. Even more variety in material / textures would be enriching, but the asset currently worth its price absolutely!
    Thank you, I am really happy the improvements work for you Yes, another cliff module is the first thing on my list and I will continue to play with the materials as well.
    Thanks again!
