Global Snow 2
Global Snow 2
From the creator of Beautify and Volumetric Fog & Mist, comes Global Snow 2, the most convenient, complete and gorgeous solution to render your scene as a beautiful winter landscape with just a few clicks. Now compatible with URP!
This asset contains 2 packages:
- Global Snow for Built-in Rendering Pipeline
- Global Snow for URP (Universal Rendering Pipeline)
Global Snow works with your existing scene, including standard Terrain, Tree and Grass, SpeedTree and many other shaders (see details): you don't have to change your shaders or use new snowed prefabs.
Global Snow is an all-in-one, drag & drop solution (with many options) that also plays nicely along with other terrain shaders as well.
*** Rendering Features ***
Realistic snow effect with 3 visual styles:
- PBR Relief Mapping, a fully physically based rendering raymarched shader which produces a 3D effect of snow bumps.
- PBR Normal-mapped snow, uses albedo, normals and specular workflow. Faster and still looks great!
- Flat shading, the fastest mode without normal modification which gives an stylized snow look.
✔ Integrated Occlusion and Glitter. Adds finer details to the ground.
✔ Unity lighting and shadow system compatible. Snow gets lit and shadowed as expected.
✔ Compatible with Global Illumination.
*** Coverage Features ***
- Automatic snow coverage with exclusion options (by layers, per gameobject, mask texture). No need to create thousands of exclusion volumes to hide snow from internal buildings or under roofs.
- Snow can cover terrain, vegetation, buildings, transparent cut-out objects and opaque geometry.
- Altitude scattering for more natural height coverage.
- Slope controls to add realistic snow over cliffs or mountains.
- Ability to place holes.
*** Extra Features Included ***
- Integrated snow coverage painter in SceneView.
- Object snower tool. In addition to the snow brush painter tool, you can now drag & drop scene objects into the inspector and apply custom snow coverage. Great to remove snow from roads and other complex shaped objects!
- Footprints. Make your FPS character leave footprints behind.
- Terrain marks. Detects terrain collisions adding marks over the snow on any moving gameobject. Also detects wheel collisions, great for vehicles on snow (see screenshots).
- Snowfall with lighting compatible particles.
- Camera frost effect.
Built-in version includes extended compatibliity with:
- World Manager API compatible.
- Vegetation Studio, Gaia, CTS and VertExmotion.
Lots of quality and feature options with global presets for quick setup and run.
- Global Snow 2 is included in the Ultimate Bundle.
