Hi 3DArtists, this is another incredible resource for Unreal Engine to download, Rural Australia Environment Pack for UE4 is Now Free!
Andrew Svanberg Hamilton in collaboration with the Unreal Engine team released a Rural Australia Environment Pack for free.
A collection of high quality, optimised, photogrammetry based content, authentically captured on location in Australia. Including a range of realistic trees to rock walls, this content pack gives you the opportunity to construct beautifully accurate representations of rural Australian country roads and remote river canyons.
All content is optimised towards standard video game specifications, with LODs, simplified shaders, and does not rely on expensive solutions or features to achieve highly realistic visuals – with the intent of being suitable for games, virtual productions, or other real-time applications. Just be careful where you step!
Log in to the unreal engine marketplace and download it for free at this link:
Example maps including a procedurally populated 1×1 km landscape, along with a country road, and river canyon
Landscape set up with multiple materials and procedurally scattered foliage
Props such as signs, fence, and road surface to distribute with ease via splines
Includes a link within the project files to download high-resolution textures for the nature assets (up to 8k)
