    FERNS World Vol.1


    FERNS World Vol.1 - v.1.1.0
    Launch price at 36$ until next free update to final content.​




    FERNS World Extras Pack Vol.1 - v.1.0 Launch price at 36$ until next free update to final content.


    Two beautiful packages of carefully handcrafted and realistic 3D ferns, plants, grasses and flowers models coming with up to 2 LODs and optimized geometry, high quality textures fully compliant with PBR system and using custom shaders to receive procedural wind as well as dynamic wetness.











    FERNS World Vol.1 Package content:
    38 Ferns prefabs with 2 LODs (12 species)
    • 16 PBR ground materials
    • Custom foliage shaders with procedural wind and dynamic wetness
    • 2 Demo scenes
    • 3 VS/VS Pro vegetation packages
    • Documentation




    FERNS World Extras Pack Vol.1 Package content:
    44 Plants/Grasses prefabs with 2 LODs (13 species)
    • 16 PBR ground materials
    • 5 Grasses Blades Textures
    • Custom foliage shaders with procedural wind and dynamic wetness
    • 2 Demo scenes
    • 2 VS/VS Pro vegetation packages + 7 VS Pro Biomes
    • Documentation




    Compatibility:

    • Unity 2018.3+
    • Vegetation Studio / Vegetation Studio Pro
    • HDRP & LWRP 5.13+
    • package contains maps for AFS


    Note:

    All of our foliage packages will be sharing the same shaders in order to minimize the number of shader/shader keywords used and reduce build time and size.
    The models are authored with a complex workflow to get the best possible animation and lighting/shading while being careful to keep geometry in a reasonable triangles count. Average polycount is 1500 tris for LOD0 and 800 tris for LOD1.
    PBR maps are cleverly packed for minimal texture samples (3 samples per material including wetness).

    Looks really nice. Would be an instant buy for me if you included some Vegetation Studio Pro biomes (asset and prefab) as Nature Manufacture did in their Meadow Environment package.

    Cool, bought. I see you've added the VSPro assets, biome area mask prefabs (
    ) would have been the icing on the cake but I can make those myself :) Will leave a review once I've had a chance to play with it.

    Are you working on any other vegetation packages? Crops I think are quite in demand, and hedges would be nice (both manicured and wild)... those would really benefit from the biome area mask prefab (line the line of trees in Nature Manufacture's meadow)

    Hi @jeromeWork, anothers VS / VS Pro Packages as Biome area mask could be added in future updates of FERNS World Vol.1.
    On same time, we are working on anothers new "3D companions environmental assets" which will fit even better the Ferns world.

    I purchased both packs very cool stuff. I'll put these assets to good use. Anyway to get the 4k texture versions of all textures from both fern packages? Maybe have an exclusive link inside the package for customers to download if they choose or I send you the invoice number and you send me a link with the zips works to. Either way works. Be great tho to have the higher resolution stuff for those that want it.

    Hi @Migueljb, thanks!
    You can contact us at entsprod@gmail.com to sending your invoices numbers, then we could pack-up you the 4k textures for the foliages.

    I really like the shader for the standard built in renderer in deferred. Can this be used for trees? By that I mean the leaves would use the shader that is for all alpha now but can there be a matching shader that would work for the tree bark part of the mesh to go along with this alpha shader on all vegetation now? That way the shader with this pack could work well with other FBX type trees as well.

    Hi @Migueljb, sadly at the moment, the Wind Shader will not work correctly with trees as they have a more complex geometry. It will not fit in properly. But, you could expect one day a Shader variant for trees from us.

    Those look most awesome and like a must have for me. However Real Ivy 2 isn't an option for me for several reasons. So I just googled and was amazed to find that there has already been a free Ivy asset out there for a while:

    https://github.com/radiatoryang/hedera

    Will your asset work with that free asset as well or is it bound to Real Ivy 2? I just tried that free one and it works in 2019.3.3f1 without problems.

    And can you post details about Vegetation Studio Pro integration?

    I'm buying it no matter what anyway, like all your other assets, but am excited with what you show here and can't wait to try myself :D

    Oh, one more: Is it possible to make vinyards with this? You know, simple ones for a car driving by scene on the country and such. Or will it be too heavy on performance?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hi @Rowlan, we are going to try the Hedera Asset to see how it works.

    1st it is to understand that creepers plants can't be sold as "ready to use" prefabs as no creepers have the same location, rotation, scale in spaces except you spawning them always on same geometries. We are providing some basics prefabs examples but clearly creepers requires for any users a spawning solution.

    The Creepers Plants Pack contains 2 majors sections, one with all the content to use with our shaders and any spawning Asset that is compatible within' as Real Ivy 2 for example and a second one with a Real Ivy Integration.unitypackage ready to use for Real Ivy 2 Customers.

    About VS Pro, it is working simply when converting creepers models to prefabs; We used the free Unity .fbx exporter for this then created prefabs which you can add in any VS Pro Biome. It is working as any others objects but as "a single instance spawned object".

    Vineyards are possible in some ways with the 13 Vines materials (2 Barks & 11 Leaves) in our coming Asset; In some ways because we purpose Virginia creepers species which have grapes too but not the cultivated ones.

    Important: We now providing all the Standard Specular Grounds Maps (Diffuse, Height, Ambient occlusion, Mask, Smooth_specular, Smoothness, Specular Maps) for both FERNS World Vol.1 and FERNS World Extras Pack Vol.1 as external .unitypackage simply at request.

    As we turned for now our Grounds Maps with our new Minerals Shader (Diffuse_Spec, Normal, WOHS Maps), the Assets contains custom Maps which can be used now for any Minerals as well for Terrains with the Standard Specular Maps.

    It is mostly to prevent the too heavy file size when downloading the Assets from the Store.

    I see you have a bark shader now. Any example of trees and leaves with wind swaying around? I have both packages but before I try again just wanted to ask before digging around. Also if this is the case that they do work with trees is that possible now with HDRP as well.

    Hi, the first integration builds were started with the original Real Ivy Asset, BUT you will need 1st to make some edits to get it working as the Asset have been a lot of evolved as well for Real Ivy 2.
    The Creepers Plants Pack have been submitted on Unity 2018.3.0f2 btw.

    Just bought your creepers and they look great. But I can't see the presets for Real Ivy 2. Are they a separate download from your site? I looked in the folder described in the video and did not see a Real Ivy 2 folder.

    Version changes are:
    - 16 new 3D Plants (Clovers, Grasses, Flowers)
    - 3 new Grasses Blades Textures
    - Ground_18 Material Diffuse edited
    - Demos edited with new Plants
    - VS/VS Pro Packages, Biomes edited and Biomes Masks areas Prefabs added

    The Grasses Blades_01 to 01_05 Diffuses Textures will not be overwritten so you will have to remove the old ones.

    I toyed around with the NatureManufacture Graveyard asset yesterday and thought the scene looks nice, but I want to add more to it. So I made a quick 5 minutes test and added your Ivys. I have to say, this is very impressive. It totally adds to the scene, I really like it:

    graveyard ivy 1.jpg
    graveyard ivy 2.jpg
    Have to dive more into it, great asset! :)

    Yes. I contacted Andrés, the Real Ivy 2 developer, about it and then he actually gifted it to me. He's a very nice guy and did a great job with the asset. I wish that asset would get the advertisement it deserves, I noticed there is none unfortunately. I can totally recommend it.

    I only wish there were more Ivy variations for Real Ivy 2. So the Creepers Plants Pack is the perfect addition. It's very versatile - everyone should get it if they own Real Ivy 2 - but one can't have enough, more please :D Installation is very easy, just install the integration and have fun with it.

    It does add to the scene. Here's a quick example comparison I did.

    Before:

    before.jpg

    After (also used different time of day):

    after.jpg

    All I did was put a seed on the top of the cross and hit the grow button.

    But you can be very custom with it. It has a paint function which I used to drag Ivy from the top of the cross to the hands of the knight like here:

    rider 4.jpg

    I kind of felt like I wanted to add more detail this way, i. e. the contrast of death and then Nature coming and breathing life into the scene, but not in a random way. It was easy enough to do, just a single drag with the mouse. Very impressive to work with. After you finished the Ivy distribution you can simply switch it to another variation by simply selecting that variation, if you feel like it.
