@macdguy worked on two new volumes, a Sky Volume, which allows condo owners to adjust fog values, sky colors, etc, and a Post Processing Volume, allowing condo owners to adjust post processing effects.

@Nuclearxpotato worked on a Canvas torus.

Condo: Post Process Volume

This volume will allow you to customize various visual effects such as saturation, contrast, chromatic, vignette, grain, bloom, tint, pixelate, etc. within a volume or globally throughout the entire condo. A pixelate option will also be added as well as some presets.

Condo: Post Process Volume - Pixelate Filter (with Posterizing)

Condo: Sky Volume

This volume will allow you to customize the sky effects, including fog, sun, sun tint, horizon/zenith colors, star colors, and time of day settings within a volume or globally throughout the entire condo.

Oh my god the sky boxes :orange_heart::orange_heart::orange_heart::orange_heart:

Building is gonna be changed so significantly once this comes out.


I love the condo sky volume. I can see so much great possibilities with this amazing feature!


The sky and post-processing volumes are something I’ve wanted for so long. Game changer for sure.


Yoo sky volumes?
Tower Unite : Now hitting (been hitting, will continue to hit)

Genuinely got up and walked away from my PC in disbelief when seeing the new volumes… My heart.

I could say this every day of the year but truly, thank you guys so much for everything. Just when I think the updates can’t be topped, you keep smashing them.

This is gonna change building forever as many have said.
