Epic Games have just announced a massive giveaway of asset packs from Project Nature. This is a collection of trees, bushes, grasses and controlling blueprints for creating nature scenes in your Unreal Engine games.
Details from the Unreal Engine blog:
In collaboration with Project Nature, Epic Games has released over 20 environment and vegetation products for free on the Unreal Engine Marketplace.
The collection includes over 75 varieties of plant species, many of which were photoscanned from real-world vegetation, ranging from towering trees to the smallest of ground plants and flowers. Create a refreshing oasis retreat, escape to a serene meadow, or adorn a warm desert landscape for your audience to explore; with more than 550 optimized models, the sky, or the ground, is the limit on what you can grow!
The pack consists of:
- Hundreds of optimized plant models and materials
- The shader-based Project Nature Wind System 2.0
- The Project Nature Interaction System 2.0, including replicated animations
- A dynamic low-poly grass system
- A dynamic ivy creation pack
