    Hey there, i have a question about Touch Bending and similar properties with prototypes. The project im on has grass foliage prototypes and touch bending seems to turn itself off whenever we close unity or change scenes. The boolean on the foliage manager does not turn off, but the functionality breaks. Is this a known bug?

    interesting, can you try toggling on the touch bending and also save project straight afterwards?

    Yes of course!
    If i was creating a new scene then it might be my problem to not attaching the unseeker
    But my problem is even your demo scene not working which is designed to work out of the box!
    I even see a log message when i starting to paint which is
    Grass Map Debug: RGBA(1, 10, 0, 0)
    UnityEngine.Debug:Log(Object)
    Then its calculating on scene and loading some content but after nothing shows up even my batches,tris and verts getting high

    next update was supposed to be last year..
    by the rate of updates seems like HDRP is the least of our problems
    seems author is burned out on this one, can't blame him unity changes too frequently

    Does this even work? It was really fast when I started following it years ago, but it was buggy...

    Hey guys, as @Recon03 mentioned in the uConstruct thread I wasn't around lately and me losing access to this account's mail didn't help either :)

    Not able to update the system at the moment but will be able to soon. If anyone is having problems with the asset feel free to send me a mail to my support mail/ to this account and I will help solve the problem!

    Does anyone have it running at all in 2020, or is this asset deprecated?

    After evaluating URP more I've decided to stick with the built-in shaders. Have you tried running uNature in 2020, @ElroyUnity ?


    Edit: After some deeper digging I got the latest uNature to at least show grass, but discovered an issue that seems similar to the one we ran into back with 2017. It's somewhere in this thread, but it was either 2017.3 or 2017.4 that broke GPU instancing in uNature, and the response you provided was that there was no way to fix it. While thankfully it only seemed to apply to that specific engine version, that same issue seems to be back in 2020. Below are screenshots of 2 fresh projects with only the latest uNature installed, one in 2018 and the other in 2020. ALL settings are painfully setup to be identical between both projects/engines, right down to precise location/rotation of the camera for a 1:1 read.

    Sadly... GPU instancing appears broken again in the latest official release of 2020. One screenshot from 2018, which runs 650-750FPS, indicates uNature's GPU instancing works, where the 2020 screenshot shows the exact same setup/scene but at less than half the performance seen in 2018 (200-280FPS), which to me is an indication of broken GPU instancing. Let me know once you've had a chance to look, and if there's a way to fix it. I have another product lined up to replace this if it can't be fixed, but really hoping the issue can be resolved as I prefer the look of uNature. Thank you!

    I appreciate your interest in uNature and testing :) It drives me and I will do my best to try and figure that issue out and hopefully more than that and get a new uNature out that far surpasses the original version.

    Thank you. But for now, do you have an estimate as to when uNature's GPU instancing will be fixed for Unity 2020 since this is core functionality? Just gauging if I need to default to my standby solution.

    I want the grass of Unature to disappear when the Uconstruct building is installed.
