Environment Tab (Vegetation System Pro)
This page is part of the documentation for the VegetationSystemPro Component.
The environment tab allows you to adjust settings that relate to the environment, wind, snow, rain etc.
Snow settings are a way to have global setting for snow. Shaders that have support for dynamic snow can now create a ShaderController class for the shaders. These classes will get a call when a environment setting changes allowing the class to modify the material of the vegetation.
This way the developers can manage their own settings for the custom shader and the user has only one place to adjust.
Billboard snow is a dynamic snow feature on the vegetation studio billboards. This can be enabled for shaders that supports it in the shader controller.
As with snow this rain setting is passed to the shader controller and 3rd party shaders that support wetness can implement this and adjust the material.
Vegetation Studio Pro has support for 3rd party wind controllers. This is a system where the developer can implement an interface and the wind controller class is found by reflection. This way the shader controller will get access to a wind zone and the global wind speed factor.
Included wind controllers
There are a few included wind controlers for 3rd party shaders.
They all have different setting based on the capabilities of the shader.
