What Is On (Secret) Sale?

    I notice that some assets are temporarily at a reduced price, but aren't part of any "official" asset store sales event. The issue (if you can call it that) is that they are not cataloged anywhere, and you can only find them by word of mouth or serendipity.

    What I propose is that this thread be used to announce any such sales. DO NOT post to this thread if it is an official sale, like 24-hour sale, madness sale event, Level 11, etc.

    And when your special price has ended, please return to this thread and update you post to say "Special Price Ended".

    What do you people think?

    It would definitely be handy to know when non 24-hour specials are happening. TerrainComposer, for example, is on sale in preparation for the new version. But there's no real notification without visiting the store page or the forum thread. Sometimes searching for the term "sale" will bring a few results, but it's not an ideal solution.

    I'd also propose that any assets in your wishlist get flagged for you when their price changes, even if it's unofficial. Right now you get a message for those items when they are part of an official sale, but otherwise nothing happens...

    Publishers should have a checkbox available for this. Something like, "Notify wishlists of price change" when making price changes so they can optionally opt into this and an anti-abuse system could be integrated, preventing publishers from notifying again for another month or two.

    Thanks for posting that info. I hope more vendors do too. I know there are more items on sale out there, but where?

    InfiniGRASS is not included and i dont mention it as included. It is compatible with Sky Master though, so i create joint demos as the two packs can work together (e.g. for snow growth without any other setup on grass when using Sky Master weather)

    The demo is InfiniGRASS one with a few touches from Sky Master v3, there is no mention of inclusion in the title
    "InfiniGRASS demo with Sky Master v3.0 for Sky, snow and water." The demo is clearly stated as InfiniGRASS one (at least i think :) ).

    It is similar with my new joint demo as well, this is InfiniGRASS v1.7, and uses Sky Master v3.4 for clouds, fog etc. The standalone Sky Master 3.4 demo (Atoll one) will be available later.

    InfiniGRASS v1.7 Demo (with Sky Master ULTIMATE v3.4 for volume clouds-fog & river water)
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79230236/INFINIDY/INFINIGRASS/INFINIGRASSv17_SKYMASTER_DEMO.html

    GI Proxy asset is included in the Sky Master ULTIMATE, as stated in the pack description.

    EDIT: I just revisited the description page and i think you have a point, the demo is named InfiniGRASS Demo and this might create some confusion (even though the asset is not mentioned as included anywhere).

    I will make sure to change to a more descriptive demo title in the pack description for next version. Thanks for bringing this up, it never crossed my mind that might be taken the wrong way as there was no mention of inclusion in the actual description and when in the demo it states that is InfiniGRASS demo using Sky Master for few effects.

    I just wish trivial stuff like that could be changed by the publishers on the spot and not through a days long review :)

    EDIT2: I think i will change the demo webpage titles in dropbox as a first step, that i can do without review and fast, adding a mention that the two are separate packs for clarity.

    EDIT3: Done the change in the demos, the pack description demo will also change after the review on the store.

    I decided to take the plunge and by Sky Master Ultimate today. And with that, I have bought, at least, one asset from each vendor who posted here due to their (secret) sales.

    I hope to see more sales posted. Do you know of any? Please post it here.

    I noticed Beffio has 40% off sale for May.
    I'm not sure if the current prices reflect that as yet, but they definitely have some awesome stuff.

    App Advisory is currently giving away four packages for free for a limited time only. Also Junnichi Suko is currently giving away an Iguana for free. I have many animals from him and his models and animations are among the best on the store.

    I tried to start a thread like this at the beginning of the year, but it didn't take off. Glad to see someone else is having success. An easy trick to finding these is to search on "sale" and order by popularity or updated. I got 286 results.

    Here are a few I found:

    Savings - Price - Title - Category - Last Update
    70% var Publisher Artur G. 3D Models/Environments 5/16
    66% $33 Dungeon+ Pack PBR 3D Models/Environments 5/16
    50% $20 Military Bunker 3D Models/Environments 2/16
    45% $30 Realistic Nature 3D Models/Environments 5/16

    Yes TerrainComposer is on sale as preparation for TC2 (basically a pre-sale).

    I been saying this for years, I wish they would, you have to find out by accident by searching..or if someone says something which is rare... They need this badly, this would boast sales...

    I would of never saw this if I didn't find another post talking about this...Thanks.... They so need a better way, otherwise publishers will miss out on sales... Like this.... I only knew about TC2 since I talk to that dev alot..But I do not talk to all devs....So they really need to add this to the site, it will be a win win for every one, and adding it to the site would not take that long, being a web developer as well....

    My Monster Pack #1 and Monster Pack #3 are lowered price right now before the final monsters are finished. The Dragon Pack PBR is on sale as well, although I highly suggest waiting 4-5 days for that one...

    For anyone who already has the Dragon Pack, there is an Upgrade Price available for the Human Base + Barbarian Pack, to celebrate the completion of the "Dragon Rider" animations, so you can save 33% there.

    Finally, my Dungeon + Pack is discounted so I can build up a user base to give me suggestions on what to add to it.

    The Dungeon + Pack looks great at a great price. I decided to get in on the ground floor. (As they say. OMG. LOL.)

    If you want beautiful environments in minutes, delivered via a battle tested and user friendly tool then check out Gaia. It will be going on sale in the next few days as well. I will be putting out a new release with more assets for you to use in your scenes to coincide with the sale.

    Gaia delivers on its promises right now, is easy to use, and all assets are included and free for you to use in your games!

    Grab 20160121185133 w1900h1200 x900y83z218r237.jpg

    Grab 20160325092452 w1900h1200 x-147y67z-382r58.jpg

    Here are some samples of what other people are doing with Gaia (with additional assets):

    OH I forgot my "Mummy & Sarcophagus" pack is on sale. It's currently un-rigged and un-animated. When it gets those done, it'll go up in price, but if you get it now, you'll get the update for free. It's a great prop right now, basically.

    Mummy & Sarcophagus Pack!

    [I hope to make an themed set of characters with this, a pack -- there will be an upgrade from the normal (higher) price of the mummy pack to the bigger pack if I get it done -- with Anubis and maybe a beetle and perhaps a "god" of some sort]

    I have used this tool it's terrible!!! Just kidding, Gaia is one of the top tools for terrains .... I have worked with terrain height maps , sculpting you name it for over 10 years... Gaia, is one of the main tools I do use along with a few others. But some others I no longer use because of Gaia...

    Keep up the great work Adam.!

    Blimey - i just read that and my heart skipped a beat!!

    I have another asset I have been working on that I will be launching in a few weeks which will make a nice companion asset for anyone creating beautiful environments.

    I have taken the same approach to this new asset as I have to Gaia. To make a complex and time consuming task simple, and to wrap it up in a nice user interface.

    More information soon :)

    Damn you Adam, you want more of my money.... lol.! You know I will have to buy it, like I do alot of terrain tools... I hope it's mobile friendly!! Can you give any hints to what your doing? lol pretty please,,, Nice UI is important, this is why I do design for UI for games for so many years since I feel to many copy old designs that do not work... or make new ones that make no sense..Gaia has a very good UI which is rare..

    PS: I hope it's like RTP but for mobile.. lol..

    Nature HDRI Pack got a 50% decrease yesterday to $9.99, I only noticed because it was on my wishlist. It's possible some of his other packs were decreased as well.

    The 50% discount on RelationsInspector is about to end. You can still take advantage of it, as long as the price change is in the store's update queue.

    @Distant Temples

    Thanks for the post, but it doesn't meet the guidelines for this thread as it is part of an "official" Asset Store sale. It is part of the Madness Sale. So if you would please be kind enough to remove your post, it would be appreciated. I am trying to keep this thread focused. Thank you.

    Whoops, My Bad I didn't even notice the Madness Sale was happening. I guess I had started looking at the store before it was posted or something. And yes with out doubt this is not the the place for official sales.
