Just a small blog on the demo level development. There are so many tasks to do still with Gen2 but we are working flat out to get you your copy of Gen2. In between tasks the new demo level is getting some work done to it but the aim is to get the level fully playable with about 3 hours content

oh nearly forgot to give you the link!

Great news, the new version looks great.

As for the new assets for Skyline. I would very much like to help and donate. Specifically for environment art. Skyline only restriction of use.
- Grass (2D Alpha Billboard) ... I have made my own in GIMP mainly. These are currently in PNG format and render very well. 200+ types of grass, legumes, flowers, weeds.
- Rocks/Stones ... hundreds of 3D rocks and stones in OBJ with low to mid range poly counts. Textures are in PNG
- Landscaping Textures ... high quality 1k or 2k PNG tileable seamless PNG textures. a very large quantity/variety of these.
- Trees ... TreeIt made trees. currently 500+ trees are avaible. Textures are in TGA format (mainly for alpha control on leaves). Tree Models are in OBJ format and work well with Skyline.
TreeIt Software....free... http://www.evolved-software.com/treeit/treeit
Example of what the trees look like in UE4 ... https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthr ... es-Library

If there is any interest. Please let me know. I can begin to assemble the various packs in 7zip.

All of this is 100% Free for Skyline Engine.

Cheers
Olander

Edit: Added 1k landscaping terrain texture option

Ok. Let me start packing them up and placing them on my FTP. I will send a PM with the links to them late tomorrow-ish.

I am really beginning to love Skyline Engine, anything I can do to help this amazing engine/project is deemed worth it. This this is far more than I had hoped it would be. 8-) And that is coming from Unity (4 years) and UE4 (1.5 years).

Thank you, Cheers
