⚠ Requirements

The latest version of the Vegetation Engine is required for the module to work!

The Vegetation Engine is a set of high-quality shaders and tools designed to unify 3rd party vegetation under the same system. Enable high-quality wind motion, interaction, seasons, wetness, subsurface, height-based blending, etc. for all vegetation assets with Standard, Universal, or HD Render Pipeline!

○ Overview

The Terrain Blanket module allows you to conform and align big patches of grass or groups of rocks, which would only work for flat surfaces, to the terrain surface and normal direction. The shaders are using the pre-baked pivots to treat each sub-mesh as an individual object, allowing you to use fewer grass objects while covering bigger areas. Or it can simply conform objects like roots to the terrain surface like a 3D mesh decal. Check the documentation for more details!
