    I'm a bit late to the party it seems. So forgetting the actual BOTD demo and the drama of needing 2018 to run it, is it possible to just grab the plant assets and reuse them in other HDRP 10.x projects with Unity 2020.2?

    You can use most of the assets but you'll miss things like bark peel shader and foliage wind.

    I'm not too phased about the wind, I just need good looking still plants for offline Unity recorder rendering with raytracing...

    Can I simply copy the prefabs or fbx files, together with the shaders and textures, or is it a bit more involved than that?

    I'd just export the scene with all the assets in rows as unitypackage and let it handle the dependencies, you can omit false positives from the dependencies at that stage if you know they are incorrect (like scripts etc that are not needed). Then just import this unitypackage to newer Unity project.

    Sounds interesting. I've never exported a scene or exported it into a Unity package, is that simple enough?

    Could you give me a simple 1,2,3 step process to achive that please?

    - Find the scene with all assets in showcase manner next to each other
    - Select that scene in project explorer
    - Right click it and select "export package"
    - Make sure you have dependency checkbox ticked and manually filter out stuff you don't want
    - Save to whatever location
    - Open newer Unity version project with newer HDRP
    - Drag the saved unitypackage over it
    - Restart the project and if HDRP wants to upgrade the materials automatically, let it do so

    Great, thanks for those instructions, sounds simple enough!

    Now if they can only find a way to reference external files, then maybe we can start creating asset libraries and use those. If anything needs updating, you update the asset and automatically it is updated across all your projects! But I geuss with the nature of realtime projects, that will never happen :-(

    The rendering looks good, but my god, the wind is causing the foliage to twitch in an unnatural way. Why not just do a gentle breeze that would be able to pull off a natural look? I would have just turned the wind off versus demoing that.

    Depending on your
    I believe this demo specifically was also showcasing it working on URP and web GL, so there will be differences and limitations Vs HDRP etc.

    Generally the motion you can attain in TVE could certainly rival something like Koola's storm tests.

    HDRP does not yet support stereo rendering?

    Indeed, was always like that, use for demo purposes is the key

    Has the environment been updated to work for 2019+ yet? Because i use 2019.4 and it doesn't work, i can import it but there aren't any textures and most of the scripts are said to be missing but they are there and over 100 errors, i don't know what to do :(

    It set the Book of the Dead, which was used in 2018, to the 2020.2.6F1 HDRP version.Wind Shader brought wind shader that is used in Fontainebleau Demo and applied it after modifying only some parts that have errors.It plays well without errors.

    Awesome, would you consider sharing the 2020.2 project?

    Beautiful, I’ve been searching for a workaround to use the assets with wind in my project but still can’t find anything... if you can share your work I would appreciate it very much!

    Our recommendation:
    The Vegetation Engine

    This is a normal process for the tech demos and many assets to be honest.

    You can only get a depreciated projects from the store you had already added to you account previously, you'll find it in your library.

    If you're studying though
    I recommend grabbing some of the newer assets like:
    the Heretic,
    Sample cinematic studio,
    Lego mini game.

    Just make sure you're targeting the right assets for the right pipeline.

    There will likely also be more to look forward to from the unity tech team, like the book of the dead and the heretic from 2021 onwards

    Arrrrgggg I missed the download of the BOTD assets and now they're no longer available!
    Anywhere else I can get it from legally?

    These often come and go. Meaning that if you ever suspect needing anything Unity puts in asset store for free, better always just add it to your account regardless if you need it at given time. You can also hide extra assets from showing up in package manager by using "hide asset" in https://assetstore.unity.com/account/assets if the asset bloat is a concern.

    Yep, lesson learnt. I've now added a bunch of things that I was thinking of adding, just in case they get removed!

    Would still be nice to get the BOTD assets as I'm sure I can modify the assets and make use of it somewhere...

    looks like the asset store links are (being) removed from the demo landing page [https://unity.com/demos/book-dead] at least / the page was/is occasionally not available for me too /, so there will probably be less questions about its availability
    the bad news is it won't get any updates in the short term most likely

    The conversion package I had made a bit ago is still available. It does not require the original BOTD package to work, though it is meant for the standard pipeline. It can work in URP / HDRP but would require conversion once installed, and the custom shaders would need to be updated to other shaders that work. URP/HDRP is "not supported" officially though.

    I hope you don't run into legal issues, but now that the asset is deprecated the point of view changed: you basically sell Unity's models with different skin.

    Definitely no legal issue.

    Only the licenses from the third party providers systems would technically have to be excluded there.

    Model assets like the megascans would be fine, since the heavy customisation.


    A little Rowlan magic is due on the store though for sure! :rolleyes:
