    Available at InfinityPBR.com and the Unity Asset Store!

    I've converted the textures in the Book of the Dead demo to standard shader when possible, and shaders made with Amplify Shader Editor when the standard shader wasn't possible.

    I've also created alternate textures for many of the objects, and will make available the Substance Painter source files for those. Most of these have multiple versions in the file, and HSL layers set up to make new versions easy to create.

    Good question -- I have no idea. I'll ask Lennart.

    Here's a video I made with the official Book of the Dead asset when it came out, featuring some of my characters.

    A couple of preview images from the build I made.

    These have no post-processing effects on them. It'd look more like the original demo with post processing. I did change the lighting and add a skybox though.

    Can you please elaborate? From what you write I get the impression you are selling Unity's work that's available for free. Even if you change a shader or a texture, what about the license of the models? Especially when Quixel models are involved? It sounds great, but it's a tad confusing :)

    Historically Unity has allowed publishers to use their free assets in ways that also distributes them. For instance, the popular Realistic Effects Pack 4 includes assets from the Viking Village in its package content.

    But, I do understand your concern. I'll hopefully get to upload this to the Asset Store today, and we'll find out if it gets approved or not in the coming week or two.

    What's the license on the substance painter source files? Can I create my own rock models and textures with the SP files and provide them for free for others?

    Buying/downloading from my site carries the same EULA as the asset store EULA. However, if you create new textures for this, please let me know, especially if you're really good, cause I'd love to have more variety to work with for game making :)

    Not sure what it would take to integrate w/ Vegetation Studio...but if it's possible, that'd be cool.

    Andrew! This is fabulous. :) I tried to use assets from the original and yeah, the shaders were wonky. So nice that you did this for us. :)

    Appreciate this very much and cannot wait to try these fabulous prefabs and textures in a scene. Will be purchasing asap.

    I will have a look. If it is amplify shaders it should be easy to add.

    Can your converted models and textures be used for commercial purposes still kinda confusing around the permissions here if I buy this pack?

    Yes. This package, as well as the original book of the dead, are under the asset store Eula which allows for commercial use.

    Anyone can use assets from unity technologies (unless otherwise prohibited, like the Adam assets) for demonstration purposes.

    In this case, I’m using the original assets to demo the new materials (which allow the original textures to work in the standard render pipeline), and the new textures I’ve made.

    This is documented at 1.1e in the asset store submission guideline: https://unity3d.com/asset-store/sell-assets/submission-guidelines

    Interesting! Also interesting that you are providing the additional download of textures for those who buy.

    Thanks for doing this! :)

    No problem! I always appreciate it when the art I get on the store has customization options, so I try to always do that for others.

    Hi,
    Im quite new and recently saw the original demo for The book of the Dead on youtube and i went ahead and accidentally purchased your asset instead. (I admit it was quite stupid of me)
    I'm a student and this unwanted purchase has set me back by a considerable amount. Can you please issue me a refund. It'd be much appreciated.
    Thanks..

    Of course! Just pm me your order number and I’ll send an email to unity to ask it to be refunded.

    Does your custom shader support SSS and all the fancy stuff from HDRP?

    Are the new textures usable with Lux/AFS/ATG/etc ? (mainly for SSS and to reduce shader keywords since i already run these)

    and yeah if it was setup as a VS pro biome... makes it an instabuy for a lot of us :p

    I'm not sure if the shader does...so probably not? It's made with Amplify Shader Editor, if that helps!

    If you are using or trying to use standard shader then it definitely doesn't have SSS, ASE is just a tool to make custom shaders, if you are not implementing some kind of SSS then what is the purpose of making these custom shaders? Kind of defeats the purpose of using Book of the dead assets because without SSS they will look terrible.

    If you don't want to mess around with shaders... try taking a look at Lux Plus or Advanced Terrain Grass by Forst. It's a custom standard shader with SSS already implemented. You do need to prepare custom textures in a format that it accepts. But the end result would be assets that look almost as good as HDRP without the hassle of HDRP.

    Probably overly Technical.. but this is Unity's implementation of SSS in the HDRP.

    Hi, I got the asset yesterday, and even though I appreciate the work gone into this, there seems to be some problems with it. First off, when initially importing, I get a bunch of these errors:
    A tree couldn't be loaded because the prefab is missing

    These go away after restarting Unity, but now it looks like a script is missing on nearly all of the assets. I get 912 warnings like these:
    The referenced script on this Behaviour (Game Object 'Rock_Passagecave_A_LOD1') is missing!

    When I click on one of these GameObjects I can confirm that indeed, a script is missing there.

    I'm importing into a fresh, new project, so I can't see how I'm doing anything wrong in this case?!

    Hmm not sure -- that's a strange issue. I'll look into it.

    Why is the performance much lower in your demo scene than the original Unity scene? Do you have any way to make the scene less laggy?

    None of the objects are LODs etc, not sure what they did with the original for optimizations etc. That aspect of things isn't something I know much about. The objects and textures are basically the same though -- no difference there, so it's likely something to do with the scene setup and other optimization features.
