    looks good, can't believe unity wasted money on Umbra's occlusion culling
    when one guy made 2x better culling.. and open source

    this is Umbra's site: https://www.umbrasoftware.com (remember this blog post?)
    as you can see its now some random small time games website,
    so I doubt we will see any updates at all for unity's occlusion culling
    some parts of the Unity engine are in a sad state, but thank god for assets like this who fills the gap

    Yes, I also find it strange that Unity does not upgrate Occlusion Culling. Especially if you look at the great progress in all other directions.

    Yeah, unfortunately, Unity Terrain has internal optimizing algorithms and my system can't interact with it.

    This won't be able to cull terrain at all then? My team would really need a better culling system, but most of our scenes have terrain in them, and unitys culling system can cull some of the terrain and trees but just does it really badly.

    This plugin seriously messes up my Unity 2019.3.3 project when it installs experimental(?) packages in addition to Burst. I get 10+ errors pointing to PackageCache/packagemanagerUI, and I need to delete the folder just to be able to use the editor.
    Then it rebuilds the UI and I need to start from scratch. Any solutions?

    @NewGame_Studio I see you've just updated the packagemanager dependencies, is the above solved then? It's a pretty severe issue. How about a little communication here? Thanks.

    Thank you for making good asset with advantages over the Unity builtin culling system.

    Are there any limitations regarding the culling areas?Can they overlap? Can they have irregular concave shapes or be stacked like puzzles?
    Or only allowed shape is cube?
    I am wondering if I could use shape of the rooms in the building, where some rooms (or corridors) are “L” or “H” shaped.

    I think it also lacks culling area visualisation for a case when the culling area is placed by user.
    So I draw a semitransparent cube first and then copy the transform values to the ngs culling area object.
    Then the culling settings could get saved with the scene, so I could use the previous settings when redoing the scene after a modification.
    And I would like to exclude (or have an option for that) transparent objects from occluders, because they do not hide what is behind them.

    I have tried to contact you few times at the mail above, but had got no response so far.
