Broadleaf Forest environment with 1800 tree meshes and ultra realistic wind, plants, grass, rocks, roads and 'Global foliage actor' via which all important settings can be easily controlled!
December 13, 2022
Each scene shown in the Trailer is included as a fixed map scene!
BUY NOW AND RECEIVE THE MASSIVE 2.0 UPDATE + 5.1 Support! The 2.0 Update supports 4.26-5.1!
This short scene is from the 66 square kilometer map and was rendered with UE5.1
The video shows the 'BFP 2.0' in combination with the 'City Sample Vehicle BP' which is NOT included in the BFP. But it can be integrated very easily. This will be explained in an upcoming tutorial! The landscape scenes are included as shown in the video. The map has not been optimized specifically for a racing game! The video recordings were made quickly to show the size of the map.
With another update selected trees will be reworked and visually improved for 5.1. The flat shapes of the leaves will thus disappear completely...
At the same time, the wind animations will look drastically more realistic!
New tutorial and more new media content will follow soon!
Look for the "Update" notice for this asset in the Epic Games Launcher!
The 'Big Forest Pack' exclusively gets a lot of additional content with this update:
The 66 square kilometer map in combination with all the foliage requires an enormous amount of GPU memory!
Please note that a GPU with 16 GB is recommended!
There are also smaller maps included in the package, which do not require as much memory!
To achieve the best possible performance in 5.1 in combination with the 66 km2 map, the following GPUs are recommended:
RX 7900 XT
RX 7900 XTX
You should also have enough RAM available!
UE 5.1: Required disk space: 45 GB
UE 5.0: Required disk space: 75 GB
UE 4.26-4.27: Required disk space: 96 GB
Without cache files!
More info about the 2.0 Update:
All assets get the extended wind system, as well as simplified autumn and winter (snow) options.
All assets get improved exposure with Lumen and improved 4K Imposters for UE4.26-5.0, which makes a significant difference!
The update for 5.1 with compatible Nanite meshes (the wind system is fully functional!) is also included in the big update and the exposure settings have been adjusted again especially for 5.1.
Nanite and WPO does not yet work perfectly on all trees, but is very convincing so far. It works for 85% of the trees. For 7 affected trees, nanite was therefore switched off for the time being.
In addition, the update will add a variety of grass plants, as well as visually high-quality grass. This will also make a huge visual difference.
The scaling values of the trees have been set to a realistic value in the procedural foliage spawner types. So the size in relation to the player character is now correct!
The bark texture can be replaced with a custom texture! This applies to all included trees! This option exists because the trees are not photo scanned.
A new tutorial and other new media content will follow soon!

Perfect for high quality virtual production and cinematics!
Contains Trees Vol. 1 - Vol. 4 and a bunch of Bonus Content!
Forest Sunset (was made before the 2.0 update!)
Strong Wind Demo with Trees of Vol.4 (was made before the 2.0 update!)
Strong Wind Demo - Seasons with Trees of Vol.4 (was made before the 2.0 update!)
The trees are not photo scanned and were generated with 3D software!
The bark texture can be replaced with a custom texture! This applies to all included trees!
There are already clouds included, but you can download more beautiful clouds HERE for free!
To achieve the same lighting conditions (images and videos), you should use the 'Volumetric Clouds'!
Volumetrics is already enabled in the project. So you can use the clouds directly on any included map!
If you buy the Big Forest Pack you will not only save 9% (contains Trees Vol. 1-4), you will also get 10 additional forest maps (4 different variations of the 66 square kilometer map) with different lighting scenes, seasons and a lot of ready configured 'procedural foliage spwaner' to create forests in a few seconds.
This high-quality pack contains 105 trees in different variations (Total 1800 tree meshes!) with realistic wind animations, 12 shrubs, 16 small plants, 14 meadow plants, 6 photo scanned trunks, 3 road meshes, 17 stones, 10 rocks / cliffs, 1 cave mesh, 1 Castle ruin, a massive multi-storey building with balconies. 3 distance mountains meshes. It contains all the meshes of the 'Trees Vol. 1-4' as well as a lot of additional bonus content. Choose between summer, autumn and leafless tree variant. Moreover, you have various options to configure the wind strength and the wind animation speed (light / strong breeze, mixed wind and random wind). This asset contains a total of 78 maps! So you have a lot of different example scenarios. Most of the maps already contain many different camera perspectives. The most beautiful scenes were selected for this. You can see many of them on the images. The bark texture can be replaced with a custom texture for each tree! You can choose between four different leaf types and change them very easily. An outstanding advantage of this asset is its uniqueness: Not only are the 8K/4K leaves of all the trees interchangeable, you are capable of dynamically configuring the colour of them as well.
BFP contains various oak leaf types:
The bent trees have exclusively 'light breeze' wind!
All maps use the new 'SunSky' Blueprint with different lighting scenes.
With the help of procedural foliage spawner types you can create big forests in seconds!
You think the price is too high? This project includes all the work done in the last 4 years. The main focus was primarily on realistic wind animations.
