Sundog Launches Unity 4.0 Support for SilverLining and Triton Environmental Effects

Orlando, Fla. (November 19, 2012) -  Sundog Software has updated its  SilverLining Sky and 3D Cloud and  Triton Ocean and 3D Water packages for the newly released  Unity 4.0 game engine. Sundog’s technology makes simulation-quality skies and water visuals available to the 1.3 million registered developers using the Unity engine.

“Our environmental graphics technology fills a need for creating outdoor scenes suitable for training purposes with the Unity platform,” said Frank Kane, founder of Sundog Software LLC. “The combination of our products with the low-cost Unity engine makes for a very economical alternative for creating simulation and training environments with accurate skies, volumetric clouds, lighting, and oceans for any given time, location, and weather conditions. Game developers also appreciate the realism our products can bring to their titles while maintaining fast performance. No other water asset for Unity offers GPGPU-accelerated 3D ocean waves, and SilverLining leverages Unity’s particle systems to keep its 3D clouds fast on any target platform.”

Both SilverLining and Triton are currently in the top-5 grossing effect script assets in  Unity’s Asset Store. The  SilverLining Sky and 3D Cloud package supports Unity on Windows, Android, iOS, or MacOS. The  Triton Ocean and 3D Water package requires Unity Pro 4.0 targeting Windows platforms. Versions of SilverLining and Triton for engines other than Unity are available from Sundog Software’s website.
