    Hey . that is fantastic . we bought RAM and EasyRoad .and using last in a new brand project @raoul has long experience
    I would ask you what you mean specifically with "easy road compatibility," . maybe even @raoul could help

    That is nice . @raoul is really a great vendor ..
    But you have not yet given me an answer to my question . "what you mean specifically with "easy road compatibility,"" . i can read in your presentation ... is that something can push us to add your asset in our list ? .

    R.A.M. has been really helpful as an ocean shader for quick and dirty mockups. It's EXTREMELY fast.

    In next version you will be able to paint waves direction just to hit land in proper direction and much much more.

    Why only using it for quick and dirty? It seems to be really good.

    I would say we didnt designed this material for sea but as many users test its very fast and looks pretty nice. Its not aquas or playway water etc but.. still looks good.

    @blitzvb I just threw on a default river material from RAM (so if you look closely in the game view, it looks off). I bet you can make a decent ocean or lake if you play with the material values. Also, I don't know if RAM does planar type reflection stuff either, which would definitely improve it.

    Hello

    I have a problem with iOS (iPad Air, iOS 11) and vertex color shader.
    I used alpha
    On MacOS, I get this:
    cascade_macos.jpg

    But when switching on iOS, I get this:
    cascade_ios.jpg

    PS: my main goal is to "animate" a bitmap background of a cascade. So I use alpha paint colors to have RAM other my bitmap with transparency
    Any ideas ?
    Thank you

    I put this on a river mesh and built to iOS 10, and the river is black. Using the basic "Water River" shader (not Tesselated). Any idea what I'm doing wrong (assuming it should work)? This is on an iPad Air (2014), so I think it runs SM 3 just fine (though can't find confirmation of that atm).

    Unity publishers cant give info about upcomming sales at all.

    No price will not change. We will keep it stable and like always our updates are for free.
    Any error or log?

    Ah, there is this in the xcode log:

    Warning: Shader 'NatureManufacture Shaders/Water River' exceeds the number of texture image units, marking as unsupported.

    The river does render on iPhone X, though flow is wrong direction and much too fast.

    Hello, just bought and play with R.A.M. in VR i have a strange dark bands on water reflection (tesseled shaders), what moving with head, it not apears at start, a second later, can then dissapear and apear again, the most visible when looking from top to water. Any suggestion how to fix it? Sample 1 from Demo Gamma Rendering (on screenshot did not fit black band at top)

    and on my tests sample 2 it is more visible

    :) Next version will be much much more detailed:D Btw you could uncheck box rendering or add blend distance so it will look better even with uncovered area.

    Hi ! Just a few question plz...
    How can I add a new point by script ?

    For exemple, this doesn't work.
    River_RamSpline.GetComponent<RamSpline>().controlPoints.Add(new Vector4(x, y, z, w));

    Thx :)

    spline.controlPoints.Add (position);
    spline.controlPointsRotations.Add (Quaternion.identity);
    spline.controlPointsSnap.Add (0);
    spline.controlPointsMeshCurves.Add (new AnimationCurve (new Keyframe[] {
    new Keyframe (0, 0),
    new Keyframe (1, 0)
    }));
    spline.GenerateSpline ();

    Has anyone integrated any buoyancy with this asset? Is there a recommended tool or method for doing such an integration?

    Hi
    So it happend. New R.A.M today will be online, we've added alot more then it was said:D

    1.4v
    - please re-alply your ramspline scripts into splines, they could be droped. Sorry for problems
    - we will add movies in monday

    List of new cool features:
    - swamp shading (shaders, textures)
    - wet stone shader,
    - wet stone with moss shader
    - flowmap system [beta] for river and swamps
    - full mobile shaders and materials for swamp, river, sea with example profiles
    - terrain shaping [early alpha] with multiple terrain support
    - vertex paint tool for models
    - flowmap painter with debug shading
    - automatic flowmap generator
    - updated manual
    - example photoscanned rock
    - new demo scene with flowmap
    - new demo scene with swamps

    Videos will come in monday.

    Swamp shading:

    Swamp_03.jpg

    Flowmap debug and painter:


    Flow.jpg

    Flowmap is very sensitive atm so speed change and direction must be painted very smooth. Mesh also need more verts then usual to keep it smooth.

    @NatureManufacture, great update! Would have been nice it there was a backup/restore script for the control points provided though. I had to make my own so I didn't had to redo my somewhat 500 points of 5 different rivers. Enjoy the GDC.

    You dont need backup. Simply reattach script and it will work:). You will not lose anything.

    Well, did try that and all my control points were gone. Hence I wrote a little component to take care of this.
