    @Baldinoboy the colliders all look great now in the new biome packages, but the white billboards remain. I also deleted and re-imported TFP, but have not tried re-importing VS and could not find a way to re-process the billboards. The TFP Biomes I created myself have working billboards, so I think it must be something about the biome packages.

    You can regenerate the billboards for a tree here-

    Just can not recreate the white billboards on import so hoping this fixes them. If not will contact Lennart to see what is happening.

    Thanks for pointing me to the button. In my existing project, regenerating the billboards did not change anything. Next, I tried doing everything from scratch with a new project and got the same results at first, even after regenerating billboards. The "Refresh prefab" button will fix the issue for a single tree in a single biome package. There is a "Refresh all prefabs" button under the Debug Tab clears them all up at once.

    Alright so this is still an ongoing issue in your main project? At least for the Biomes I sent? I can get in contact with the VS dev to see if I we can fix this issue and keep it from happening again.

    No, it is not ongoing, as pressing the Refresh all prefabs button cleared up the billboards in my main project as well. Here is a video of me setting up a project from scratch where you can see the white billboards. This was recorded a few hours before I found the Refresh all prefabs button.

    Best regards,
    Tony

    Alright good. Thanks Tony. Talked to Lennart and looks like I can fix this from happening again so will work on that for a fix update.

    Do I need to use AFSv.5 to get touch bending to work with TFP?

    Yes, Also ATG when used with Vegetation Studio. Have not used it in a while but when I did last the ATG Foliage VS shader had a touchbending setting.

    The default CTI shaders do not have any touch bending options though. Would be cool to have but doubt it will be an option in the future. Mainly shader complexity and performance.

    Sorry for the long delay @nova234. CTI support for LW and HDRP is being worked on at the moment. Is a very difficult process because of the complexity of the shaders and them having to be re-written for both RPs. Can not promise it will be coming soon but it will happen eventually.

    Hey @unity_c1ndWE1Nn46iPg,

    Sorry for that issue. Either an asset store import issue or could also be the wind script. In the scene that there was no wind was there a windzone with the CTI Wind for LOD trees script attached?

    Also any error right now or is it working okay?

    Best Regards,
    Baldinoboy

    In older versions I was using a custom Dithered shader but in the most recent version think I switched it to a new included particle shader. Also applied a normal change to the particle system in the render tab. This helps with the lighting some. A custom shadowed particle shader would help so much too. You can of course use it how you want.

    If possible, can you add a bit straight coconut tree trunk in the next update? Because when I put it in the scene, I always get Mayan or Caribbean sea feeling in it. I mean if possible

    Yeah that has been requested before so is on the list when making the next update. There will be one more improvement update for this pack with some new trees/plants and improvements to some of the current so so things like grass.

    Hi @Baldinoboy ,

    i am interested in getting the tropical vegetation pack but i am also wanting to get this asset "Next-Gen Soft-Shadows" which also seems to require setting custom shaders in Graphics panel. How both assets suppose to work together. Anyway of combining them !? I will ask in the other asset thread as well, but any input on this will be appreciated ! Thanks !

    Hi @Vagabond_ ,

    Have not used v2 but do remember using NGS v1 with this pack for fun and it worked fine. Do not remember NGS needing Deferred Diffuse or Deferred Reflections and that is all you need for CTI in Deferred mode. Think NGS needed another input in the Graphics tab for the shadowing that CTI does not use.

    So it should work fine. If there are issues though you can PM me.

    Sounds good. If you have time let me know what they say and if there are any issues. NGS is a must use system in my opinion so need things to work.

    Hi @Baldinoboy

    here is actually a post with an explanation of what it should be added to a shader - NGSS

    Thanks for the info. Messaged the shader dev on it. Will message back when I hear from him.

    Hi @Vagabond_, Just letting you know the shader dev will add this in probably this next week. Not going to update the pack with this edit because he said it adds a texture lookup if using NGSS or not so want to keep the shaders as optimized as possible. Can of course share the edited shaders when they are ready with anyone who needs them and make a note on the store page.

    @Baldinoboy Is there any chance that you plan on merging your coconut palm package with TFP? I visually prefer your old palms but can't configure them well with VS.

    Hi @BrokenVector, Do not have plans to bring them into Tropical Forest Pack. They were made using the tree creator and this pack is all modeled. So completely different setups. Will add a straighter palm to this pack in the next update when I can get back to it.

    With the Coconut Palm Tree Pack would look into AFS and its AFS Tree shaders compatibility with VS. If it is than you would just need to use the AFS versions for the trees included in the pack and apply the right shader. Than they should work in VS. Just have not tested this and not sure if the AFS Tree shader is compatible with VS, especially with billboards.

    Hi @nova234, Yeah that is great to see! Will focus on getting an update for TFP with the new shaders this next week.

    Hey @SickaGamer, No HDRP support yet. Lars has been working on it but HDRP is a monster to tackle with a custom shader. We are not even sure if similar wind quality or features can be recreated in HDRP because of the shader graph dependence.

    Hi @Baldinoboy ,

    i want to say thanks from the hole team.

    I have a second request, if its not to much. Your pack is awesome but its missing one thing. The Problem is this thing is not only missing in your nature pack. Its like missing in every Pack we purchased. Its Bush´s, i compare you pack with the vegetation in crysis 1. And Bushs are amazing to hide inside or behind and looks amazing in crysis tropical forest. Is it possible to get one or two amazing Bush´s ? One big bush 2 meter or higher and a smaller one 1 meter or smaller ?

    Hi @nova234, Thank you for your message and request! Bushes are in the pipeline for the next product update. Bushes will be the first to work on. Then other things like straighter palms and an additional tree or two.

    Hi, thought I would try here as I had no response from email. Is there any other shader that will work with the Tropical Forest plants and trees as it just crashes unity 2019 on build.

    Also If I don't use wind on the shader (as it seems to be in a hurricane with no visible way to turn it down) the trees then stand still in VSPro and so I find this difficult to work with?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Hi there!

    I managed to recreate the materials with the shaders of the HDRP / lit version of unity 2019.2.4f1. Obtaining translucency effect and PBR look. But I couldn't get the wind effect to work.

    Is there any way to use the wind effect in unity 2019 with HDRP?
    In case it is not available yet: how long do you think it might take to solve this problem?
    It's crucial to my project achieve this effect.

    Thanks
