My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!

The creators of Spirit Tactic, a real-time tactics (RTT) indie title for mobile, have made a 3d modular terrain kit tutorial to help developers create modular terrain.

Designing Mobile-Friendly Modular Terrain

The list of 18 basic pieces are quite versatile and they all must conform to the base tile that was defined earlier.

spirit-tactic-4-80lvMake sure to build each piece using the above instructions: Duplicate, rotate, and connect.

The ramp lengths should be planned by base tile units which is dependent on the angle you want.

Snaps should be used to match the pieces that are at tile corners.

To get more variation without vertex blending, make mini-atlases with four variations. Duplicate a tileable texture and add details to it and map sets of four base tiles on it.

Add texture and map pieces so the ends match up and use a mini-atlas for detail. The tile should be scaled to 80% and trims should be added in the 20%. Use the same structure for multiple textures for the same tileset.

Try out different profiles with the same principles. The polycount will get larger the more tiles you have.

They imported it in Unity and used a shader that blends 2 textures by Vertex Alpha.
