Global Snow 2 comes with 2 packages: one for built-in pipeline and another for URP (Universal Rendering Pipeline).
If you’re using built-in pipeline, just skip the URP setup section:
The URP version requires Unity 2021.3. Make sure an URP asset is present in Project Settings->Quality or Project Settings->Graphics.
To install the plugin correctly, you need to:
- In Project Settings->Quality, double click the Render Pipeline Asset. It must be URP.
- Double click the asset in the Renderer List in the Inspector, under the Rendering section.
- In Rendering->Rendering Path, change “Forward” to “Deferred”.
- Click Add Renderer Feature below and add the Global Snow Render Feature.
Note: URP assets can be assigned to Project Settings / Graphics and Project Settings / Quality. Check both sections!
Once the Global Snow Render Feature has been added to the Universal Renderer, continue to the next step:
Camera Setup (built-in and URP)
Add the GlobalSnow script to your main camera in your scene.
Check the Scene Setup parameters if needed and choose a Quality preset.
Optionally enable footprints, terrain marks, snowfall or camera frost features.
You can of course customize any of its parameters to match your game mood and requirements.
