Build a cute cartoon-style village with Clay Forest Village Pack presented by Studio Kobo, a vibrant pack of over stylized 50 assets, featuring meshes, post-process materials, and atmospheric effects.

With this pack, you'll get 42 clay-like props and foliage, including houses, props, trees, flowers, RVT grass, particle effects, Toon Outline and Kuwahara Filter post-process materials, shaders that produce a painting-like visual effect. Every master material provides a vast array of parameters for tweaking the look of each material instance.

Clay Forest Village Pack also supports Lumen for Unreal Engine 5 and above.

Clouds Lighting System allows you to dynamically illuminate 2D and volumetric clouds with a range of adjustable parameters to achieve the desired look, including intensity, color, attenuation, and falloff type. All parameters are accessible through Blueprints/C++ API and Sequencer.

It's powerful and easy to set up, with no external dependencies, compatible with any material, and has an unlimited lighting area. And what's nice, it supports UE versions 4.26 – 4.27, 5.0 – 5.3.

This unique modular asset pack contains everything you need to build your own magnificent Gothic cathedral. It comes with 158 individual meshes in total and a large number of fractal-based decor patterns and engravings.

You can either design your own buildings with dimensions fitting your needs or simply copy and paste pre-made ones.

There are 3 master materials that drive nearly all material instances: for tileable textures, for custom materials (non-tileable), and for the landscape. The majority of materials are based on RGBA masks that blend different tileable textures, adding dirt and wear. This approach reduces the number of high-resolution textures and gives you more control over the final look.

Gothic Cathedral Asset Pack supports Unreal Engine 5 and above and comes with documentation and a downloadable demo.
