Spoiler: Show Tutorial Video Dynamic Modular Weather Modular Weather allows users to create custom weather types. Sand storms, auroras, hail storms, thunderstorms, etc are all possible. There are no limits to how many weather types UniStorm can use, and best of all, they allow users to use their own custom particle effects, settings, and sounds for each weather type. Spoiler: Show Screenshot 31 Included Weather Types UniStorm comes with 31 weather types each with unique settings, particle effects, and sounds. However, you are not limited to just these. Nearly any weather type can be created by using UniStorm's weather type ScriptableObjects. Just create a weather type, customize the settings, and add it to UniStorm's weather type list. Spoiler: Show Weather Types List Blowing Leaves Blowing Snow Blowing Grass/Pine Needles Blowing Pollen Lightning Bugs Clear Mostly Clear Partly Cloudy Mostly Cloudy Mostly Cloudy with Rain Mostly Cloudy Thunder Cloudy Overcast Foggy Hazy Drizzle Light Rain Rain Heavy Rain Hail Thunderstorm Light Snow Snow Heavy Snow Thunder Snow Auroras Lightning Bugs Dry Thunder Fire Rain Firestorm Dust Storm Cloud Profiles UniStorm features customizable cloud profiles that each weather type can use. This allows you to customize the clouds' appearance to give tons of variety to every weather type. With UniStorm’s cloud profiles, users are sure to find the perfect cloud style to suit their project. Clear, Fluffy, Soft, Balanced, and Stylized Cloud Profiles are included. However, you're free to create your own! VR & Mobile Ready UniStorm's all in one system also supports mobile and VR. There's even an easy to use option that will automatically apply all of the optimal settings for the targeted platform while keeping users' custom settings! Advanced Weather Generation UniStorm generates weather based on the precipitation odds set from within the UniStorm Editor. The easy to use line graph allows users to set the odds for precipitation weather types for each month and UniStorm will generate weather accordingly. Summer can have less precipitation than Winter and vise versa. UniStorm has options to generate daily weather with a randomly generated start hour and hourly weather that's generated every in-game hour all based off the precipitation odds. If users don't want generated weather, there's an option to have static weather too. Weather and Weather Transitions UniStorm allows users to create an endless amount of weather types that UniStorm will use. Each time the weather is changed, UniStorm will seamlessly transition it according to the global transition speed. Each weather type can be customized with its own cloud cover, cloud style, cloud height, particle effects, sun intensity, moon intensity, cloud shadow intensity, sound effects, wind amount, and various other settings allowing for truly unique and customizable weather. Spoiler: Show Screenshot Global Weather Shading UniStorm's PBR Global Weather Shader allows objects to receive rain and snow shading during rainy and snowy weather types. Rain shading allows surfaces to get shinier, but only on surfaces no greater than 90 degrees. The inside of most surfaces will appear dry, such as inside buildings and roofs. Snow, will function the same, but with accumulative snow shading. The snow texture, snow bump texture, and snow specular level can all be customized. When the weather is not raining or snowing, UniStorm will fade out the weather shading. Spoiler: Show Screenshot Procedural Lightning & Lightning Strikes UniStorm’s Procedural Lightning system allows objects to be struck by lightning. Users can define the odds lightning has to strike the ground and objects. When a lightning strike happens, users are able to customize what effect is created. A fire effect can even happen with the appropriate tag. Proper Season Calculation UniStorm's seasons will properly calculate the season down to the day and allow users to choose either Northern or Southern Hemisphere. Day/Night Cycle & Colors Control UniStorm allows you to adjust all colors of the environment and sky for each time of day such as the sun and moon colors, ambient light colors, shadow and cloud shadow intensities, fog colors, sky colors, environment reflection intensities, and more! Each color also has its own individual color options for precipitation weather types. Time, Date, & Built-in Calendar UniStorm has a built-in time and date system that can help keep track of a player's in-game time. UniStorm's calendar is accurate and even the current time and date can be used. Weather Type Conditions Optional Weather Type Conditions make weather types have to reach certain conditions for them to be generated from UniStorm's weather generator. These include conditions such as seasons and temperature as well as the ability to only have certain weather types be called from custom events or programmatically. Customizable Moon Phase System UniStorm's customizable moon phase system allows users to build their own moon phases. There are no caps to the amount of moon phases UniStorm can use. Users can preview their moon phases , and set the starting moon phase, right from within the UniStorm editor. UniStorm automatically assigns all needed textures and updates the moon phase daily. Each moon phase also has their own moonlight intensity. This allows the new moon and crescent moon phases to give off less light than that of a full moon, if desired. Spoiler: Show Screenshot UniStorm Profiles Import and export your UniStorm settings to and from a UniStorm Profile. This allows users save their settings and use them elsewhere by simply importing the UniStorm Profile. Exporting a UniStorm Profile can also be used during runtime so users can adjust their settings in real-time and export the result to be imported later. UniStorm Profiles can be shared with other users offering an even greater range of lighting techniques and styles. More UniStorm Profiles will be added with each update. Spoiler: Show Screenshots Time of Day Sounds and Music UniStorm allows users to customize the sound effects and/or music that will play for each time of day. The amount of delay in between each sound effect and song can be customized. There's no limits to the amount that can be Sound Manager UniStorm's Sound Manager handles all of your UniStorm created sounds using a generated Unity Audio Mixer. This gives you precise control over the Master, Ambience, Weather, and Music volumes which can be usable with user built UI or can be controlled within the UniStorm Editor. Built-in Events UniStorm's built-in events can get called every in-game hour, day, month, year, and even during a weather change allowing users to easily create added functionality for their games. Included Examples UniStorm includes 9 example scenes all demonstrating different functionality you can do with UniStorm. A save example system is also included that allows users to save their in-game time, date, weather, temperature, and more with both a manual and auto-save option. This data can then be loaded so users can pick up right where they left off. The Editor UniStorm’s editor's design has been heavy influenced by the feedback from its many users to be intuitive, powerful, and offer a low learning curve. UniStorm’s editor is self-documented so every component is explained right from within the editor via Tool Tips. Spoiler: Show Screenshot Editor Tooltips UniStorm's editor has tooltips for every variable and setting allowing for quick and easy information all while keeping the editor simplistic. API & Documentation UniStorm offers API to help with additional game mechanics and features such as accessing the temperature, time, date, current weather, forecasted weather, season, and more. Tutorial videos and external documentation are included to help users get the most out of UniStorm. Large and Endless Terrain Support UniStorm supports both large and endless terrains. CTS Weather Manager Support UniStorm includes an external system to transition CTS's weather shader for when it rains or snows allowing your terrain to be shaded with snow accumulation and wetness. The shading will then fade out with non-precipitation weather types. Support for 3rd party assets such as CTS, AQUAS, MegaSplat, MicroSplat, and more will be coming very soon.
