Hi Forum,
something i did a looong while ago.
It needs an update to make it properly work in Unreal again.
This is WIP and cleaning up stuff one did ages ago is "fun"...
I will post the WIP HDA in a few days.
Comments are welcome.

greetings

Olaf

Looking good Olaf! Happy to see you're participating

About the work.. Do you plan on shading it using textures? Would be nice to have some UVs and use a shader on it to get some subtle variations in roughness, color etc.

Hey, Olaf! That's cool! Something to think about is how it should be turned into a shippable asset for a game. Usually, this type of asset is baked down to a texture on a plane. You can even go a bit fancier and add parallax occlusion in the Unreal material in order to give the texture some depth as well.

Keep it up!

I just set the category to as it is not about aesthetics and apparently game assets are judged on that.
