    Hello guys,

    I progress for the update 4 but the slope got some problem that I work on.

    Problem:
    The Displacement don't appear the way that I want to.



    So for the next day I will continue to work on that. The slope work like you can see but for some reason the bump is a bit weird.

    This is coming soon guys!!!

    Also I try to add new texture choice for the landscape.

    Thank you!

    Optimization is pretty much done.
    --------------
    Automatic materials for landscape (slope) : System completed, Now I work on adding a variety of textures for the slope. All the textures will be 4K(original files) but in the UE4 i will drop every 4k to 2k so you will have the option depending on the types of quality you try to reach.

    I research into a large variety of reference type to do some new textures for the landscapes.
    More likely for the slope (cliff type look).

    The more variety you have, the more design choices you will have.

    Hope this update will help you with your games and upgrade your landscape level of detail!

    Absolutely vikings,

    The main reason why I don't share to many video is because I didn't have the technology (microphone) to explain some of my feature or stuff. I could make one where I will slowy explain how to make a layers for the landscape or replace one for sure. I keep that in mind !

    Hi. Looking forward to update 4! Are you going to make some tutorials how to change/add texture layers and how to use your asset in general?

    Thanks!

    --- UPDATE 4 Status ---
    Hello guys, As you know, the update 4 will be based on two big things:
    OPTIMIZATION
    LANDSCAPE SLOPE

    Right now I made some test for making my asset running better together and drastically improve the fluidity of my maps. Optimization is a huge part of job which is really technical and hard to push to the limit.

    What i've find so far:
    If I do some LOD by myself for the trees I can totally win a lot of fps.
    The culling distance in my procedural system is way to high.
    Density of foliage is high so without a good culling distance and LOD set-up the performance hit is for sure pretty hard and this cause the fps to constantly up and down.
    Foliage can be easily decreased to 2k and 1k without seeing a difference in quality
    Same for the rock 4k to 2k.
    Landscape in 2k looks pretty good

    Stats:
    GPU look to be ok
    FPS With optimization, on standalone mode:

    So for now the optimization going well!
    The slope is not finish yet.

    I anticipate to release it at October 13-14, 2018

    Thanks guys hope you love my content as i always love to try to upgrade the product value!
    Have a great day!

    Hello guys,

    September update is a bit delayed to october, like I said i'm busy right now but as I planed to do,

    Complete optimization for the entire project.
    Slope materials for landscape.

    I'm also started a new project for the unreal engine market
    and I work for some contracts so sorry again for the delay.

    Thanks you for your patience!
    VB.

    For sure! This could be a great addon feature to my update 4 ! I'll work on that! I take any idea pretty seriously. I always trying to upgrade my content to the next level. So slope is on my list for the update 4. I also probably gonna add some different wooden fence and a wooden bridge too !
