Fade | Nature Asset Pack

by Thatimster in Materials, Shaders, Textures

Toon rendering for nature is hard! Broken shading or Emission shading are your only options and both results are equally disappointing...

...until now!

Thatimster & Wayward Art proudly present:

Fade is a nature asset pack crafted for scenes that use Toon / NPR shading.

Core Features:

Smooth Shading

Apply to any mesh with 1 click and obtain smooth results regardless of the shape or size. Completely dynamic and 100% shader based, no mesh modifiers needed.

Vegetation Shader

Maximum shader control for any alpha based material, change color, texture, smoothing, outlines, shadows, ambient light and more!

Smooth Toon Shader

One Toon Shader to rule them all! Consistent light based shading with additional controls for contours, specular, shadows, and border / outline. Flexibility and control like never before.

(New) Solid Toon Shader 

Need something more traditional? The Solid Toon shader has you covered! Controls for border noise, light scaling, shadows, alpha and color will allow you to quickly fit any model into any scene within a few seconds.

Procedural Color

Every included asset and shader has the ability to change its color. No need to edit the colors of the texture. These procedural shaders allow you to modify the colors of any material to perfectly match your scene.

Procedural World skies

Mix reality with powerful node groups for magnificent backgrounds. Available for Day and Night with more to come!

Low-poly Grass

Create massive fields of grass with very little overhead. Procedural wind control, animation, color and ambient occlusion.

Fog Shader

No more emission problems with volumetric fog. Shader based fog with simple controls and batch processing to copy settings.

127 Nature Assets and Shaders included: 

Bonus Weather effects (automatically animated via drivers)


No need to spend hundreds of hours modelling assets and tweaking shaders. With a wide variety of different nature elements you can simply select any model and add it to your scene with 1 click. 

One Addon, Many Functions:

Instantly add shaders, models and skies to any scene with a few clicks. Asset previews, scale control, particle setups, automatic fog setup and much, much more!

(New) Documentation & Tutorials: From installation to understanding how specific shaders work, the new and improved documentation for Fade will make sure you won't get lost!
