Hey everyone,

Just wanted to share what I've been working on for the last few weeks. Questions and critiques are more than welcome.  : )

I wanted to create an environment with procedural textures using substance designer in Unreal Engine 4. 

Below are high res screenshots of the final environment, along with a general breakdown. I can go into more detail if anyone wants to know more.

Update: Since so many people have been asking about the substance files, I've decided to (finally) upload them for anyone who's interested in the graphs:

Rocky Lagoon Substance
Rocky Cliff Substance

    Hey, Pixel

    Just tried opening it on several other devices and the images still show up.

    Can anyone else confirm if they see them or not? Thanks :)

    Thanks Calina :D 
    Glad to hear it's working!

    The sky is the default sky. Here's a screen shot of the settings I used to get what I wanted:



    I also increased the value of the Horizon Color to 35 and the Cloud Color to 5 to make them stand out better.

    Thanks Samifira! I'm not really planning to do much more atm since I don't want to linger on one project for too long.
    But if you think it needs something extra I'd be glad to hear it : )

    Really nice work :)  loving the atmosphere of the piece. I don't understand where the ripples are coming from though because it doesn't appear to be raining at all.  I think maybe a small washed up old wooden boat in the corner would look nice give it a bit of story.

    Really nice work! I don't really have any crits at all, I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy the show :)

    That looks lovely! However... it looks like the ripple texture is inside out. The ripples look like dents in the water instead of little tiny waves..

    amazing! what kind of triangle count do you have going on here? I'm always fascinated about that.  Any wireframe shots?

    It's impressive, you say is procedural so you didn't use any texture ? 
    I am curious, could you show us how you work with substance, your graph is impressive, but I can't see how you did it. 
    Thanks

    Amazing work James! Do you have any videos that do a little fly through?

    So since so many people have been asking about the substance files, I've decided to (finally) upload them for anyone who's interested in the graphs.
    You can also find the links in my original post. Tried to clean them up a little, hopefully they'll be easy to understand :P

    @Adelphia Thank you! The rain is a little hard to see in the screenshots as it didn't do them any favors. If you enlarge the pics though you should be able to make out a light rain.

    @chrisradsby :)

    @Tomiajayi The scene uses quite a bit of Tessellation since each of the rocks are just sitting around 5k tris, while the ground is just a few tris. Most of the work is being done on the shader level which is giving them the rest of their rocky forms. Unfortunately I thought I copied over the UE4 file, but turns out it's not on my hard drive :/, though if I took a screen of the wires, you'll just see them all over the place thanks to the tessellation!

    @urgaffel Haha. Shhhh, keep your voice down :P 
    Good eye btw! I might have forgotten to click "flip green channel" after importing it into UE4.

    @nickzucc Thank you Nick, that means a lot! Unfortunately I don't have any fly troughs atm. My current laptop is somewhat dated and can't keep up a smooth enough frame rate for a nice fly through.

    Also sorry for taking so long to reply. Been preoccupied with looking for a new job, which hasn't been the most encouraging of things, and it's been pretty draining overall..
