○ Unity Awards 2020


The Vegetation Engine won the second place at Unity Awards 2020 • Best Development Tool! Huge thanks to anyone for their support and feedback!


○ The Vegetation Engine


The Vegetation Engine is a set of highly optimized vegetation shaders and tools designed to unify any vegetation asset from the Unity Asset Store, Megascans, Speedtree, Tree Creator, and more, or custom vegetation made by your team.


Enable high-quality wind motion, interaction, local wind, seasons, wetness, subsurface, gradient and noise tint, perspective correction, camera distance fade, glancing angle fade, crossfade, size fade, height blending, and more, for all vegetation assets and props with Standard, Universal, or HD Render Pipeline!


○ The Converter


The Vegetation Engine comes with a one-click conversion workflow for 3rd party vegetation assets. Once converted, the assets are fully compatible with all features provided by the asset and will work in all render pipelines! The converter uses text-based presets with an easy-to-use but comprehensive API.


○ The Shaders


The Vegetation Engine includes highly customizable shaders compatible with all render pipelines (2020.3+). With feature parity between pipelines, switching to another render pipeline can be done at any time. With over 50 parameters, you can enable or disable features with the Amplify Base Function function!


○ The Elements


The Vegetation Engine comes with a comprehensive set of modular elements , used for motion and interaction with unlimited characters, motion flow, local wind, dynamic seasons, global overlay (snow, sand, dust), wetness, tinting, size control and leaves amount with minimal performance impact!


○ The Layers


The Vegetation Engine comes with a new layers system for both the elements and the materials, so you can customize how each material is affected globally. Add separate season colorization for trees and grass or different interaction elements per material with an easy and intuitive layer system.

○ Limitations


🞫 TVE is not a placement tool, it is a vegetation unification/detailing tool

🞫 TVE requires Text Serialization mode to be enabled in Project Settings > Editor!

🞫 TVE is designed to work with instancing, static batching support is limited

🞫 TVE can be heavy on mobile, only high-end devices are recommended

🞫 Only the latest LTS Unity versions are officially supported!

🞫 HDRP RTX is not fully supported


○ Disclaimer


The Vegetation Engine will not do a 1:1 conversion for the vegetation assets. Even if in most cases the converted prefabs will look similar to the original asset, depending on the original shaders, lighting can change, colors can change, various features could not work anymore and the wind animation will definitely be different. After conversion, material tweaks will be required!


This is not a vegetation spawner tool, but it can be used together with your favorite tools supporting instanced indirect such as Vegetation Studio, Nature Renderer, GPU Instancer, Mega World, or other placement tools like Gaia, Map Magic, Terra World, etc or vegetation placed as prefabs in the scene!


The Vegetation Engine shaders can be heavy on lower-end hardware because many features are enabled by default. You can create your own shader versions using the Amplify Base Function , by disabling the features you don't need!
