A collection of my favorite environment effects I made for Crowfall, a PVP oriented MMO on PC. All done in Unity.
Added crows to Crowfall!
Fire shader and particles
Wanted a better way to transition building stages. Animated scaffolding and added particles.
Abzu inspired fish. No rigs, all animated with a shader.
Lava shader with vertex offset
Shaders and particles for spirit horse mount
Performance was just a big concern early on, that water was cut from the game. I created a water shader one weekend that only cost 1 draw call. Unlit shader, fake transparency, caustics, fake reflection. Water was added back to the game!
Crows set up similarly to the fish - no rigs. Animated with a shader.
