nice blog but here is the thing, what is wrong with overlaping uv's and mirroring them, what are the cons of overlapping them and why is this method better in the case of uv? thanks

Thank you @Fcardoso The volumetric light is available in the latest 2018.3 beta. In the visual environment setting, there is a new option to select Volumetric light fog. The screen I shared is from 2018.2 during that time I was using a script to enable it :)

FX Contest

Using your creativity and ability to work within the World of Warcraft art style, Create create a player ability, that could be added to the kit of one of their existing classes. You could conjure up anything from the power of the void for a massive flying ball of death , or call upon the elements of nNature to ensnare an entire mob, or wield the power of the Light to rip a giant fissure through the ground.
 

Character Art Contest

Using your creativity and ability to work within the World of Warcraft art style, your task is to concept, model, and texture a non-player character (NPC) or creature that you could imagine roaming the plains of Durotar, exploring the depths of Deepholm, or just sitting in the Pig and Whistle Tavern knocking back a mug o’ Thistle Tea.
