    This is really cool - can users change the cross-section and/or texture so it can be used to make roads, fences, rivers, etc...?

    Just got the asset. It's really amazing!
    And is there any way to replay the growth animation during the runtime with the snapshot asset file or something else?

    Thank you dearamy!
    Right now there's no runtime features for this tool, but there's lots of people asking for it. So, after the upcoming update with the drawing system, I will create a runtime module ;)

    This is how looks the new feature of the tool!


    Now you have two ways of create ivys:
    • Procedural: As usual
    • Painting: Click and drag over your scenes and the branches will follow the mouse, fitted to the surfaces!
    In this video you can see the behavior of the tool


    In this new mode of creation you can :
    • Create exempt branches (clicking fat from the rest of branches),
    • Insert branches in a previous one (Blue dot in the video),
    • Continue an existing branch if you left it unfinished (Yellow dot in the video)
    • Also, theres a Undo button overlayed in the Scene View that allows you to delete the last branches you created.
    I hope you like it!

    I need some marketing stuff to do, and I will submit it for revision on 10th June, so... if we are lucky It will be updated on 20th xDD Unity is a bit slow with the revisions.

    See you!

    It's possible animate the growing ivy? by code or animator.
    I mean, generate an ivy, but show it gradually.

    Not yet! But there's lot of people asking for that, so it's the next I'm going to include in the tool for sure!

    1) In automatic mode it would be great to place obstacles as a predefined mesh of a new mesh-obstacles-window. (Cube, sphere, cylinder etc) Would be great to have some points on a meshes to resize them any direction.
    Why? Think about your house scene, where ivy will build over windows and doors. Mesh-obstacles could prevent this.

    Perhaps it's also possible to build up Mesh-Hulls. The automatic mode of Ivy would build up only inside of meshes.

    2) I have another idea for a mode that should be possible with Ivy. The tube and wire mode. The idea would be to create any wires or tubes with different sizes or materials along surfaces or out of the ground. The wires or tube creation should mainly use 90° curves and straights.

    It's not that easy to find some good examples, but they show what I have in mind.
    For sure, should be not that much wires/tubes at the same place like these examples.

    Modeling this tube and wire stuff is really ugly as well. So perhaps your Ivy generation requires only some small changes to go 90° and straights. :)

    Hi!
    Can Real Ivy be used to generate some kinds of roots? without the leaves I mean. Does it have this Option?
    Thanks in advance,

    Dom

    Yes of course! Actually there's a built-in preset for that purpose.

    Hello everybody!!

    I'm working on one more update for this tool. This time I'll add runtime funcionality! Here's a video of how it looks. It's almost done :D

    Nop! But you could do changes of that kind via shader.

    Yea the color via shader, I was thinking more about growth of the leaves in the spring and falling of the leaves in autumn.
    affecting the geometry.

    Wuo wuoo! I don't think so hahaha. It would be very expensive for the computer and for me to create such a thing hahaha.

    Yeah! You can use any texture, material, even mesh. Just drag and drop in the corresponding slots.
