The developers behind Voxel Farm have published a video, showing their software running in UE4. The version is not finished. It’s just an example to show how you can use Voxel Farm to build impressive voxel landscapes in Unreal Engine 4 (so far without meshes like grass, shrubs, smaller stones). Everything renders pretty fast and looks very nice.
I was thrilled when it took only a couple of clicks to get a good behaving character. Setting up lighting and atmospherics was also very easy. We are not fully exploiting the shading and many other toys in UE4 so it is bound to get much, mucher better.
Been able to just link to our C++ code makes the collaboration between the two engines a breeze. Thanks to that we can run on ARM platforms like iOS.
Voxel Farm is a 3D, volumetric, content engine. It allows people to come together and produce content for virtual worlds. It’s a fully networkable voxel terrain that can be modified at runtime. Functionally-wise it’s very similar to Everquest Next: it’s a very flexible system that gives unparallel creative control over the virtual world.
- Large open worlds
- Complex world topologies (caves, overhangs, vertical spaces, etc.)
- Dynamic content (towns, dungeons, etc.)
- Allows users to destroy
- Allows users to build, create content for other users
- Allows users to mine and harvest
- Large scale events (volcano eruption, asteroid events)
- Large amounts of captured data (point clouds)
