    We are using a SimpleLit material for all of our objects. We avoided Lit material, because we don't need it and we feared it could be slower.

    Recently there was a need for a variant of the SimpleLit material that had plane clipping support. Plane clipping can be implemented with ShaderGraph (using transparency masks), but unfortunately ShaderGraph does not support a SimpleLit target.

    Fortunately the member Zallist implemented the missing feature as a Unity extension: https://github.com/Zallist/unity.zallist.universal-simple-lit-shadergraph-target . Many thanks to him!

    Unfortunately, he can't maintain that feature indefinitely. But quoting from him, the extension is ready to be merged to Unity. See https://github.com/Zallist/unity.zallist.universal-simple-lit-shadergraph-target/issues/4

    Could you please consider merging this code, or alternatively implement the SimpleLit target?

    Thanks for the feedback and the request. This is on our radar; we intend to address this by providing a SimpleLit sub-target or integrating tier scalability into our Lit shader. We are looking at it as part of Block Shaders and Shader Graph improvements.
