In this article, I am going to introduce one of my favorite assets for Unity, that you can use in STYLY.
The asset I am going to introduce today, is an asset called “Blockout”.
※ You cannot use this asset with Unity 2018 and later versions. Please use it with Unity 2017 or previous versions.
“Blockout” is a material collection, and you can use more than 550 materials to create buildings and landscapes.
You can add or edit material parts to create buildings and landscapes intuitively.
First, I will give you a brief overview of the asset.
Then, I will explain how to download and import the asset to Unity, and how to upload the asset to STYLY.

Downloading and Importing to Unity
So, lets access the Unity Asset Store from Unity, and download and import “Blockout”.

For those who are already familiar, search for “Blockout”, and download it.
Uploading to STYLY
Let’s upload the “Blockout” asset to STYLY.
By selecting “All Assets”, you can place all the material parts into the scene.
An enormous amount of material parts is set out in the scene, such as mountains, trees, cliffs, and blocks. There are more than 550!
You can just select some parts you like, and place them in a scene to create a nice landscape.
For details of how to upload assets to STYLY, please refer to this article.
If you want to upload a whole scene to STYLY, please refer to this article.
The image below is a scene using the “Blockout” asset in the STYLY Web Editor.
It takes time to find assets to place in a whole VR space, but by using the Blockout asset, you can select from a huge collection of material parts.
I hope you use it for your creation!
