Snow Environment

Over a period of 2 Weeks that I was in contact with Deakin University I had been creating a Snow Environment as to their request.

Here is my current project:

without distort

As shown in this small .gif is that the terrain is deforming from the player and accumulating from the snow particles.

As shown in this .gif the snow is accumulating on the objects; this is done with a snow shader which tessellates from a height map. When the snow hits the object it ray casts towards the collision and draws on the height map with Texture2D.SetPixels(x,y).

with distort

In this gif you can see I have been also playing around with some Distortion Shaders which were going to be added when the temperature could cause some mirage effect (which is known as the refractive index).

Controls:
1 to remove the terrain height.
2 to add some terrain height.
Note that the Unity Version used is 5.6.1f1 otherwise the shaders will not work.
Also note that the project is not final, it is a WIP and is all subjected to change in the future; also the Ethan has some odd interactions with the terrain due to the default player controller.
