    Hi there!

    We have decided to revisit and upgrade to 2019 standards the Sci Fi Characters Mega Pack which was initially released in July 2014, almost 5 years ago now.

    While the majority will consider this is a great news, there will be a little bump on the excitement road: we unfortunately won't be able to provide these upgrades free of charge...

    Indeed with the competition and the amount of assets on the Asset Store it gets harder and harder to be sustainable without making some big decisions.

    So the big decision was to have our existing customer of this pack and sub packs pay an average 33% upgrade fee. This would allow them to enjoy the upgraded version.

    We understand that this business model is clearly not appreciated by some users who feel entitled to have lifetime updates.
    While we were still able to do this for the Heroic Fantasy Creatures Volume 1 and 2 over a period of nearly 2 years, we noticed that these efforts didn't benefit us in the long run in order to be sustainable.

    We do hope that you'll understand that decision.

    As of now we have reworked 19 out of the 22 models included in the pack:
    • charcharosaurus
    • scaramar
    • tripodonte
    • gastarias
    • Gastaroid
    • Gastaroid Queen
    • Lucanops
    • Explosive Spider Bot
    • Assault Robot
    • Biped Mech
    • Transport Mech
    • Alien Bounty Hunter
    • Alien Mercenary
    • Sci Fi Pirate
    • Sci Fi Mercenary Female
    • Alien Special Forces Psychic
    • Alien Infantry Trooper
    • Alien War Veteran
    • Sci Fi Mercenary Male
    Here how they look like now:











    We will be upgrading the pack as fast as we possibly can (potentially a pace of 1 character per week if all goes well).

    We haven't created and uploaded the upgrade version yet. We have to re create all the new packages first prior to deprecating the older version.
    Also There will be a grace period of 6 months for this upgrade, which means that if you purchased the assets included in the pack within that period you'll be eligible to receive the upgrade free of charge

    Cheers! :)

    The upgrade you are doing with all your models is worth the upgrade price. keep up the good work.

    Sci Fi Bounty Hunter animation set is now complete. A massive set of 254 animations is included in the package (around 120 are root motion variations). This character can be used as a playable character if you have the right controller to handle all the animations.



    It will take some time to export each individual animations and integrate them into unity. Please bare with us.

    Hope you guys will enjoy that first character of the Sci Fi shooter Game Characters Pack Vol 1.

    Cheers! :)

    Model is now rigged and skinned, we have to tweak the huge set of animation that will be applied to it. IOt will hold a sawed off scifi shotgun most likely. Here is how the character looks like in sketchfab viewer:

    We don't get to decide. That's unity's call. We might have declined though.

    Put it in your wish list. Doing so improve the chances that a specific package might be on sale in the future. Who knows what can happen! :)

    We've been working on the Congressman / Dignitary character. It's going to be a nice addition too the pack. Developer will be able to use it as an NPC for mission such a seek and protect, Rescue, or even Abduction and jail, or seek and erase a traitor

    We've decided to reuse the other alien races for the dignitaries which mean you'll have a set of 5 characters to use (each time we might add another race it'll be added as well).
    Here is the first we've been working on. It is fully rigged, skinned animated and the animation set is complete.
