    Hi!

    I'm working on the future demo (as well as screenshots on the Asset Store) of Ultimate Terrains. Just trying to show what can be done with this smooth voxel engine.

    I'm not a 3d artist, I'm a developer so I'm trying to do what I can with lights, textures and so on but there is probably a lot of space for improvement.

    Nice! I didn't know there was such a tool on the asset store! Would be nice to have a video

    @Androdro Thanks for the feedback! I will definitely make a video (one showcase video and one tutorial video at least).

    I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at. Can you explain what you mean by 'smooth voxel engine' and what it improves over regular terrain? Is it still Unity terrain based, or is it Mesh based? If Mesh based, can you control the polygon density? (and seeing some wireframes of how dense it generally is would be nice).

    Is it the fact there can be 'holes' in the terrain? That's the only thing I think looks out of the ordinary.

    @ceebeee Yes indeed, unlike standard terrains, it can have overhangs, caves, holes, etc. It is just not possible to create a standard terrain that looks like these.

    It has nothing to do with standard terrains and it is mesh based. The polygons density can be controlled through acceptable error parameters but it's generally better than the standard terrain on this point.

    Other than this, it is fully editable in real time (you can dig true holes, or add mater), it also handles cubical style (minecraft like) and terrains are infinite in all directions.

    The downside is that it takes time to generate (like minecraft terrains for example) and has of course a higher CPU cost than standard terrains (fortunately, it is fully multithreaded).
