Mino - time to move to germany? ;) (I just read that the US failed to give you a Visa :) )

Would love to work at Acony but I doubt I'm skilled enough with 3d Apps neither did I do much with UE yet.

Bietet Acony auch Ausbildungsplätze bzw. Praktika an?

What exactly do you mean by that? We do have a 6-months trial period per default on every contract, but a trial period is normal on contracts in Germany. And unless you sit around and actively try not to do anything there is little chance of failing it.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
