Update 1.1 released! See more info in the next post.
The Advanced Texturing and Displacement Component is finally finished (WIP thread)
This system allows for multitexturing an arbitrary mesh, based on a splat map with up to 4 textures. Each splat is normal mapped, and they have the option (at runtime or compile time) of being parallax mapped, relief mapped or parallax occlusion mapped. The level of displacement is set per texture, as is the specular colour. A specular map can be integrated into the diffuse map alpha channel using the tools provided. A full mesh normal map can be integrated with the splat normal maps, and a fallback texture can be provided as well.
As this is not a terrain replacement shader, a set of tools is provided to export the terrain and the required maps (although not vegetation or trees at this point) for use in this shader.
In short, this system provides:
- 4 texture multitexturing with normal maps
- parallax mapping
- relief mapping
- parallax occlusion mapping with optional self shadowing
- per splat specular and specular colour
- whole mesh normal map
- whole mesh fallback texture
- blending by height of splat
- PS 2.0 fallback(4 mesh multitexture+ whole mesh normal map) that also runs on modern mobile GPUs
- whole mesh shininess for Beast interaction
- a component that encapsulates all the functionality that can be attached to the mesh, and hot-swaps in the selected shaders
- specular map into alpha of diffuse tool
- tool for integrating splat heightmaps for displacement mapping
- built in terrain mesh exporter
- built in terrain splatmap exporter
- heightmap exporter for built in terrain to generate whole mesh normal map
- texture grayscale exporter for simplified displacement map, where displacement map for texture is unavailable
- a five level quality system with user selectable quality features for each level. After setup, the level can be changed at runtime.
An *experimental* four splat with per-splat normal map, specular map and specular colour for Tegra 3 based mobiles with a fallback to the shader mentioned above for other mobiles. (Note: this is *very* resource intensive, and so should be used sparingly)
The source to first-person versions of each of these demos is included in the package.
The component using normal, parallax and relief modes with a variety of terrains
The component using Parallax Occlusion Mapping with a fly-through
The component and quality component used together with Unity set to “Fantastic”
The component and quality component used together with Unity set to “Good”
