Additional info:

Each part wil have the necesary resources to do that part on its post attachments. And each part will have a Patrons only post with the final assets of each part :)

Ive leaved on the attachments of this post the first resources you will need to start with the tutorial. It contains the scene set up.

The tutorial will be in Unity 2018.2.0f2 (The shader will work on other version, the main reason of using this version is shader forge)

You can download shader forge for that version here: https://github.com/vaxkun/Shader-Forge-2018.2 (im giving this link because im sure this version is working with the version im using, but since shaderforge is open code, there are ppl making it better and for other versions, but for this tutorial i recomment to use this)


I think all its said so have a good dev! :)
