Dedicated Unity blog about Terrain Core Update

Terrain

-

-

In 2013, somebody posted the idea "Improved Unity terrain core engine" so that it would be possible that Unity developers could create as great environments as UE developers could.

The idea got 1984 votes, and was accepted by Unity 4 years ago.
Since then it has the status "Planned".

Since then there's absolutely no update, no mention of an update or anything else.

Unity just keeps quiet about this since 4 years.

I know of several experienced people who still don't know if their game will be released with Unity or UE.

This is nerve-wrecking.

I'm therefore pleading for an official Unity blog where we users finally get insights about what is planned and when it will approximately be available to us.

Because currently we can only hope that something is being worked on.
At first I thought hoping was enough, but after 4 years of waiting I think I'd need some proof.

    I agree, Unity is doing an amazing job and i'm seeing teams do on par work for interiors thanks to pbr, lighting and post processing.
    But the terrain system still looks old and is hardly as seamless and lifelike as the tool set given in Unreal, its pretty good, but no one is making anything AAA.

    @ARTAANI "Core Engine Update" is not about the terrain editing tools, it's the inner workings, LOD limitations, tree limitations of the current terrain core engine.

    The thing is that I feel absolutely left in the dark.
    Unity doesn't talk about it at all.
    Same as lighting. Suddenly Beast was gone. I wish there was more info about the decisions that Unity makes so that we all can better plan ahead.

    Yup, I really feel like the Terrain system should be updated seriously!

    >> "so that it would be possible that Unity developers could create as great environments as UE developers could"

    But it is possible using tools from the Asset Store, isn't it?

    For example:
    https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/56762
    https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/27389
    https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/55073

    Unity's response at Unite Europe 2017 sounded so child-like:

    For the very first time I didn't feel taken seriously as a Unity customer.
    Unity, you need to be more open and serious about such a highly requested feature.
