    Hi Guys

    We are proudly presents our new package for Unity: ProRoad

    ProRoad is a road creation tool for Unity, which follows the same principles as professional road being made. These basic concepts together with many rich features makes it not only easy to use but a perfect solution for any car games, where roads are important.

    Compatible with Unity 2017.x and Unity 2018.x.

    ProRoad and it's tool set has been used for making our successful racing game Revhead. We decided to release these tools for the public to help get over those obstacles, which comes when you are making a simulation game.

    ProRoad comes with features like radius based curves, road banking, intersections, segment-based material/texture usage, road bumps, terrain tree/detail clearance or automatic (value based) indentation. The generated road mesh is exactly on the terrain surface with the same tesselation without any offset. Special shader is provided to avoid Z-fight issues. There is a Decal mesh generator in the package to make road paintings, oil stains and other cool visual content, a Surface map detection tool to allow to set different road surface types such as tarmac, gravel, dirt and more.

    ProRoad also comes with additional tools, such as ObjectPlanter tool, Logger module, Surface map tool, Decal mesh generator to help adding objects or integrate it with your scene in your own game.

    Hi, I am interesting in this product as well. It feels like a powerful tool but without many documentation though.
    Two question:
    1. Is it possible to generate roads during runtime?
    2. Is it possible to auto detect crossed roads and creating road intersections?

    Thanks!

    We don't have trial version yet, sorry.

    Regarding the realtime generating of roads and cross-roads: no it is not supported.
    We made this tool to support or game, to allow us to use multiple textures, proper alignment with terrain and fine tune possibilities all with high performance so the game would not have performance issues due to the roads.
    You can edit the road "realtime" in the editor, but once the game is running it will use a pre-generated terrain and assets.
    The reason we are doing this way and the approach we are taking is for performance and supporting race games, where realtime road surfaces detection is just as important as looks or drivability. Also, most cases games like ours would required a well designed road or circuit, which needs to be fine tweaked during test runs, so our goal was to provide a tool which can help with creating and fine tune it, then use it with as less performance as possible during the game.

    Hi,

    The ObjectPlanter is the tool we made for such things like curbstones (it's part of the ProRoad package to help the users to create the surroundings faster and easier). All you have to do is creating a new ObjectPlanterLine path along the side of the road and using a curbstone model to instantiate it along this path. It's pretty easy to use and you can re-generate the object after any road modifications.
    We've made a small presentation for you to see the result of the process.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the answer. I use object planter tool for placing my cones, tyre stack etc. I will model my curb stone assets suitable for this tool. It's easy process.

    By the way very thanks for this great asset!

    Is it possible to create an object planter line from the road spline? Actually I'd need one left and one right for the guide posts along the road. Maybe also with an offset to support planting of lanterns and such. But it would of course be nice to plant directly along the road with an offset instead of having to use an object planter line..

    Currently, it is possible to do it only by hand but we are planning a new feature to make it very easy and fast.
    To do it by hand, create a new Planter Line object and under its group object find and delete its markers (in the inspector). Now find the markers of your ProRoad, copy and paste them under the hierarchy root of the Planter Line (where the old deleted markers were). Now the Planter Line's path runs right in the middle of the road and you can drag the markers by hand to make an offset.

    I'm really impressed about how quickly one can create a racing scene with ProRoad :)



    While doing so, ideas and feature requests kept on coming. I'll send you those via pm @Creative-Pudding, keep up the good work.

    Here's a new video with a longer driving scene as it was asked for by some users :)
