    Thanks for attention. I am using the Mobile Shaders Built-in, but they dont have Difference and Specular Channels. And some objects stays with tones very dark or very gray. :(
    I look the ShadowGun, but it dont have too.

    Who made this Dif_Nor_Spec Shader?

    @flim: Yes, you can use the pack with other engines.
    Most of these assets are in fbx, only the trees and busches, they are unity trees.

    http://unifycommunity.com/wiki/index.php?title=ObjExporter ) with this script you can export all trees and bushes as obj files.

    Thanks to KeliHlodversson

    Hi Jacal,

    I was attempting to download the high res textures the other day but unfortunately the link is down and i have not yet seen an update on the asset store. I can provide my unity asset store receipt and forward it to your email if need be to get the new link. Would you be able to send a new link?

    I'm already bought the asset. It was really awesome even though I don't have Unity Pro.
    But I have a problem with the high resolution texture link.
    I was attempting to download them but I can't download them at all.
    Can I forward my receipt to get the new link?
    btw, I suggest you to upload it on mediafire. If I'm correct you can set the password on your file that you've uploaded.

    hey jacal,

    I have a request on another pack you could do :). Moar buildings to match the ones in the big environment pack. I have building models from dexsoft and arteria but they have many more tri's and i cannot get nearly the same performance out of large scenes with those builds as i can get with the ones from this pack even with 3 stages of LOD + occlusion culling baked.

    $90? This is worth at least three times more... Why give it away so cheap?

    Welcome to the free market! :) This pack was above my "reflex buy" point, but I purchased it because it looked good (and is). However, I would not have purchased it for $270. That's just nuts.

    You're right, I'm new to Unity market... I searched around some more and I see that prices here are really a lot lower than on some other sites, that are not just game-related. Coming from games industry and knowing the insane prices of outsourcing (even Chinese), makes me think the number of sales here must be very high for artists to break even. Because the software alone costs a fortune.

    I use the camera to flythrough underwater then every object not in the water turn in to white.
    Why did this happening?

    @Quarry3D: Thanks, i just wanted to make the price indie friendly, the price could raise in the future depending on the market, but will stay indie friendly.

    @MizoreRainy: This is the RenderQueue script, just set the Queue to 3000 on each water tile.

    Hey there, I've bought this pack but am having some issues.

    In a dark scene, all the billboard or LoD effected trees seem to glow white. From my research it seems to be an issue with t he alpha in the textures. Would you happen to have a fix? Either updated textures or another creative solution :)

    Thanks for such a great asset pack,

    josh

    @josh: Thanks for your support, this is a known problem of the builtin Terrain Tree Billboard System (Shader), i think the generated billboard atlas textures are not solidified, this could explain the white outlines. As far as i know we have no access to the generated tree billboard atlas textures.

    From my research this past week it seems to be an issue with textures using transparency instead of alpha. Any chance of us getting an updated texture pack using alpha channels?

    Cheers!

    @pudd1nG: This is a billboard Tree Texture problem and these are automatically generated by the terrain engine (the trees are rendered and baked in to a texture map with transparency, to which the user has no access to without hacking ) All foliage textures in the Pack are clean, masked and solidified in photoshop.

    @jaybones: Thanks jay, you could fix this easily by replacing the pro water with unity free water.

    Wow, Jacal,.. you are very talented at what you do. !!

    Looks to me like your new scene has a new terrain. ?

    I really like the feel of it/ your sense of space, spacing, elevation, etc.

    nicely done!

    and just my 50 cent: i have noticed that the bark on billboards looks much to dark - nearly black.
    have you already tried the advanced terrain shaders version 2 for billboards? they might do a much better job.

    @shwa: Thanks for your kind words :) yes the scene comes with a new terrain.

    @Legacy: Thanks man :) I use Zbrush 90% and the rest C4d-Bodypaint, Blender, Xnormal and Photoshop.

    @sjm-tech: Thanks a lot :)

    @larsbertram1: Thanks for pointing this out Lars, I would love to use your advanced terrain shaders in my next project, you are doing a good job.
