    Well I bought and downloaded the package but forgot to rename it to unitypackage and had a bit of a problem due to a misunderstanding on my part. The developer has now chnaged the download on selfy to a rar, however, if it opens as a .tar one need only rename the file from .tar to .unitypackage. No doubt those of you more upto date than I would know this anyway.

    Rather a good asset and well worth the cost on selfy.

    Hi, thanks for your purchase.
    Sorry that it wasn't clear how to handle the downloaded file. I corrected the download so you don't need to rename it anymore :)

    Hi, it works great with TerrainComposer. One thing to note is that Enviro doesn't support builtinTerrainTrees in current version. But its on my todo list! So at the moment you would need to place vegetation with the ObjectPlacement of TerrainComposer.

    Hi there,

    would be interested but want to wait how you are going to implement RTP support and handling TerrainTrees.

    Any ETA?

    Thx in advance

    Hi Wylaryzel,
    I will send v1.1 to AssetStore the next week. At the moment i optimize the new shaders and update the documentation.
    With 1.1 RTP is fully supported. You just need to add a script to your RTP Terrain and define the RTP presets for the different seasons. You create in RTP one preset for summer one for fall and so on. Dynamic snow and wetness is handled by the weather system you can define the wetness and snowiness for each weatherpreset you created. When its start to rain or snow it will raise the wetness and snowstrenght slowly for your RTP Terrain.
    About TerrainTrees:
    I already checked out how to implement this but came to the conclusion that it would be a mess to setup a lot of different trees and you also loose the exact controll of each tree instance you have with the prefab based system ENVIRO uses. With current system i create a new tree in less than two minutes and can adjust the settings like growspeed, scale and age easy and fast. With Object painting tools (like "Prefab Brush" free on assetstore) it is easy to paint these trees onto your terrain and you can adjust the settings for each tree easy and fast. So at the end you loose controll and comfort using TerrainTrees over prefab based trees with ENVIRO.

    If you got more questions or need more information how ENVIRO works and if its the right product for your project feel free to mail me at vondox@live.de

    Does this asset, which looks great, support Playmaker with Playmaker actions etc? It would be revolutionary if it did!

    Hi Duffer123,
    at the moment there is no Playmaker integration. But I will look too add some Playmaker Actions in next update with some other changes to make ENVIRO even easier to implement and use.

    Is the part about "ambient light" in the documentation still valid? If so, does it control the "ambient intensity" and does it set the ambient mode to "color"?
    I'm actually a bit surprised that this asset didn't get any more attention, it seems like an extensive weather and time solution. I'm very tempted to try this out when I get to the stage where I'll need a weather system.

    Does Enviro use events (the C# kind) for seasons? Because I'd love to use it to take care of anything visual that's based on seasons and the time of day. Think street lights, crops (as terrain vegetation), additional snow meshes for winter but also things like the Horizon[On] terrain changing with the season. That would make it possible for every user to extend the system for their use case. EDIT: Ah, woops, just saw that you have a season-sensitive GO swapper for that. But still, events could be useful for things where you wouldn't want to swap entire prefabs/GO but rather change some other logic. Maybe also with events such as "snow" to only then replace water with ice, change footstep sounds, spawn snow meshes etc.

    And, at last, a minor and a major comment on the visuals: The minor one is that the snow particles look cartoon-y, snow flakes that large aren't a single crystal. The major one is that the clouds are very mediocre. It's something I could live with for now, but I'm thinking this might be one of the main reasons why this asset isn't being used more often.

    As for which assets should probably be supported/tested for support on top of the ones you already do(in my opinion): Stix' grass shader, Ceto and Horizon[On]

    EDIT: Okay, I'm guessing it's because the update was only a few days ago and it looks like a huge improvement.
    By the way, are the seasons lerp-able? At least for the values that can be lerped such as colors.

    Hi,
    the documentation for version 1.3 (linked in main post) is still valid but not finished yet. I will add more information in the next days. You can control the ambient intensity over the EnviroSky script. The "color" will be changed by the system based on time.

    At the moment there are no C# events. But that's a good idea to improve the system and will be added soon.
    You can check the current time, season, weather conditions with a single line of code in your own scripts for now. For example ("EnviroMgr.instance.seasons.currentSeasons" for seasons) I will add a coding section in the documentation soon.

    For snow and wetness: You can define the maximum snowiness and wetness in each weather preset. The system will lerp this values over time to get a smooth transition from dry to wet for example. You also can check this values with a single line of code in your scripts.

    About the visuals: The snow effect when near to camera is cartoonish indeed^^ The effects using Shuriken Particle Systems. You can easily swap out the texture. I may change this to a more realistic in the next update (1.3.2)
    The clouds got a major overhaul in last update.

    About the assets you mentioned. I doesn't own a copy of these at the moment and can't test. I may buy a license of some of them and add a proper integration in future.

    About the lerping of seasons: The system just change seasons based on days (You can define how many days each season lasts) The season components can just activate/deactivate gameobjects, swap materials or textures(terrain). Only the "Relief Terrain Shaders" components lerp smoothly between seasons. Its a feature of the shader itself to lerp between presets.

    Before i buy, how modular is Enviro? I want to use the weather effects/system but want to use a separate time of day/skybox system.

    How difficult would it be to do this? I bought Unistorm in the past and the thing is a nightmare to rip apart and get working.

    The demos look very impressive!

    Hi,
    wouldn't be very difficult. You can deactivate the "features"(Skydome,Moon,Sun,Stars) you don't want to use in your scene. Would need to change a line in EnviroWeather Script to use the time of the other system and may need to delete a line in EnviroSky script for ambientLight.
    If you need help with these changes or have problems you can mail me for support.

    Lovely jubly. Purchased it today and currently looking into it. If i end up using it for this project and tie it into Time of Day successfully, I'll email you a mini guide of what I needed to change (in the case of someone else asking the same sort of question). I will also be using Gaia so will also look into PBL shader support with the terrain texture spawning module.

    So far so good though. Much more user friendly than other weather systems I have tried in the past.

    Cheers!

    Thanks, good idea with the mini guide.

    Thanks,
    you can setup the cloud coverage form clear to overcast and setup color, light influence, alpha and wind / morphing speed. for each weatherpreset. So you can a have partial clouded sky but no configs to add real cloud formations.

    Hi there,

    I've bought UniStorm a long time ago without truly using it, but now I need it for a new project and it gives me tons of errors on the latest version of Unity. So I was looking for another weather system and found Enviro, which looks really good.

    But I have a few questions before I buy it:
    1. Is it tested with latest version of Unity?
    2. My project is a kind of strategy game. The camera would be looking at the terrain from above, so I don't really need all sky stuff (like volumetric clouds). Is it possible to disable some features?
    3. Can volumetric clouds be used as volumetric fog above the terrain?
    4. How does the vegetation growth system works? Do we have to feed it with tree prefabs? How does it know where to make it grow? Does it work with terrain grass too?
    5. The season system seems to affect the tree in your screenshots. Does it work with any Unity tree?
    6. Are sources included?
    Sorry for the long list of questions :)

    Hi,

    1. I have tested with 5.3.1p1 and its working expect the surfaceshaders need a little fix. Go through the shaders and change "unity_LightGammaCorrectionConsts_PIDiv4" to "UNITY_PI / 4.0". I will upload a fixed version for 5.3.1p1 later on Asset Store. You also can get the fixed shaders from me per mail.

    2. You can easily disable the sky, stars and clouds.

    3. No that's not possible, sorry.

    4. You need to create a prefab with the script attached and attach/assign the tree models you want to use. You save this to a prefab and place it on your terrain.

    5. It works with all kind of models. Unity Trees, SpeedTrees or what ever. SpeedTrees often have seasonal trees included or you create them with the SpeedTree Modeler.

    6. All sources are included.

    I hope you are still interested in Enviro. If you need help to integrate the weather system with your game send me a mail.

    Does it work with Ceto Ocean or/and PlayWay Water?

    EDIT: Can I have a glympse at Playmaker actions? (gorgeous that you made it) Is it possible to activate wtness shader (also via playmaker), on the ground, without rain? I am interested in using it with another weather system which doesn't have wetness/snow shaders.

    Hi! I am seriously considering buying this. It does everything I need it do, or so it looks like it in the documentation.

    I have a question though.

    I noticed you plan to add the C# code but have yet to add it. Is that something that will happen in the near future?

    Also, at night can we make the ground darker? Are there sliders to control night and day light on the terrain?

    Thanks so much.

    Nevermind...Until they fix 5.3, I can't buy it. :(

    Hi jeremiasz,
    i doesn't have a copy of Ceto Ocean or PlayWay Water at the moment and can't test. But i don't see any problems. I may add a integration in future to link Enviro's weather system with the ocean.

    The weather shader are controlled by a little script that checks and sets a simple float (wetness and snowstrenght range from 0 to 1). You can write your own little controllscript based on that and link it to the other weather system. Or I think you can use playmaker to modify the weather shader materials directly.

    Hi Teila,

    Enviro is written in c# and full source are included. I talked about events to use in your own scripts and logic. For example : OnWeatherChange() At the moment you will need to check the current weather and write your own logic. This will return the current active weather = "EnviroMgr.instance.EnviroWeather.currentactiveWeather".
    I will add events in near future but can't give an eta.

    You can control both the moon and sunlight intensity and the ambient light intensity. For darker nights you have to setup a low moon light intensity.

    Enviro should work with older Unity 5 versions. If there are any problems with older versions tell me and i will send you a quick fix for this version.

    Hi Reiner,

    I am still working on update 1.4 and should be finished this week.
    Update 1.4 will include c# events requested by christoph_r. At the moment your scripts can listen to weather, seasons changes and day/night changes. I also added a new inspector script to link your functions to these events in editor.
    [​IMG]
    Update 1.4 will also include mobile optimizations and better flat cloud lighting at evening. I also will upload an .apk for testing and upload an updated documentation with scripting informations.

    Hi Vondox,

    i really like your enviro asset! But as always there is room for improvements:

    1. Missing c# events (ok, comes in 1.4, but can you add events for time changes (at least hours))
    2. EnviroSeasonObjectSwitcher does checks for season changes in Update(), this will slow down the game with many (really many) objects. Maybe this could be moved to a central object which manages alle seasonal objects
    3. Seasonal lerping: why replace all objects at once? You could add a setting for this, so let's say summer is 90 days and autumn is 90 days and lerping is set to 10 days. In summer on day 85 the manager from 2. could replace about 10% of the seasonal objects. On day 86, another 10% is replaced. In autumn on day 5 alle seasonal objects are replaced.
    4. Sky: the sky looks very roundish. Tenkoku looks ways better. Is there a way to change this?
    5. The effects are all spawned in runtime (Gameobject "Effect Holder"). In my oppinion a prefab would make more sense, especially if you would do some advanced things like using an audio mixer for all audio sources and you don't want to mess with the code :)
    What do you think about them?

    Thank you,
    daschatten

    Hi daschatten,

    thanks for your feedback!

    1. I already added time events. Will be included in 1.4

    2/3. In 1.4 the season scripts using the new events. But i really like your idea with "lerping" seasons and will implement such a feature in near future.

    4. I think you talk about the clouds that far away. I already have a few ideas for improvements. For now you can modify the y scale of the volume clouds to lets say -0.5. This will look like this:

    You can also play with the "Horizont Blending" shader value. Tell me what you think, i try to improve all parts of enviro over time ;)
    I will improve clouds in 1.4 and also add new options for sky height calculation.

    5. I changed this to runtime generation to make Enviro really simple to setup and easy to create new weathertypes. But a prefab only for the audiosources that can be modified in project and will get instantiated on runtime is a good idea. I will implement this in 1.4!

    Hi Vondox,

    by changing y scale of the volume clouds and adjusting the horizont blending i get better results.

    I'm looking forward to your next release!

    Thank you!

    A quick update for 1.4:

    Current Changelog:
    I also worked on another new feature. A fog image effect implementation. Based on Unity's GlobalFog wih additional features like scattering, tonemapping, and sky blending.

    Here are some wip screenshots from 1.4:

    I will give my best to finish this until end of this week. I am a bit busy in the next days but should be possible. I am sorry for the delay but i wanted to add a few more fixes and new fog in 1.4 before release.

    Hi, does your system support multiple suns, moons, or other satellite objects?

    Are Snow Rain effects camera effects or how do they work? The question comes up because I am wondering if Enviro Rain / Snow effects do work with a Terrain Shader like Distingo.

    If they are shaders, they won't work with Distingo. You could, however, write script to change the shader when you need the effects.

    Shaders are limited to a certain number of passes. As an early tester of Distingo, I know that that shader is at it's limit. So you cannot add snow or anything else to it. So you would have to turn it off and replace it with a snow shader. That is how RTP does it I believe and that is why you can save presets and code them change.

    Thx for claryfing Teila. But thats exactly why I am asking if the effects are camera effects or shaders.
    I need dynamic weather effects like rain and snow in my world and I need a good terrain shader like distingo. As far as I cann see without turning on off shaders and switching between them it's not possible to user weather effects with Terrain Shaders like Distingo. I own RTP which would also do it in some way but well I am searching for a lightweight alternative.

    Cheers

    Rain and snow coming down from the sky is particle effects attached to the player, so camera effects. The snow piling on the ground is a shader effect.

    Are you sure you can't turn off a shader through script? You would have to write your own, of course.
