    [RELEASED] [SUPPORT] HCM - Brick Wall

    Hello Everyone,

    HCM - Brick Wall is the first product of a Highly Customizable Materials project that I have been working on for a long time. The HCM project is designed to create and customize materials commonly used in daily life. Wood flooring, fabric, pavement, asphalt etc. But now I'm here to show you the brick wall.

    HCM - Brick wall is a Highly Customizable Material that allows you to design and create any brick wall you want. A dirty and damaged wall with graffiti on it, a nice loft apartment wall, a clean shinny painted wall, a castle wall from 14th century... You can control every detail and create brick wall you have in mind with the nearly 300 parameters. You can bake brick material you created with Material Baker as PBR Textures and use it on any platform you want.

    Features:
    • Custom map support for every feature.
    • Detailed texture customization and UVs manipulation.
    • Mixer allows you to customize the bond material on your wall. A clean wall completely covered with plaster or an old wall partially damaged.
    • Wall Painter allows you to paint your wall as you like. You can use any RGB picture or you can paint the masks in 5 different colors.
    • With the Custom Roughness you can adjust the roughness and specular of the brick wall surfaces in a very specific way.
    • You can select your own PBR Textures for brick and bond surfaces from Map Selection.
    • You can bake your brick material as PBR texture outputs with the Material Baker.
    • Supports tessellation, vertex displacement, bump offset and parallax occlusion mapping.
