Lakeside Respite is a school project made using Unreal Engine 5. It showcases a medieval environment, enriched with Quixel Megascans assets. The primary objective was to construct a game-ready environment employing essential engine tools.

I utilized Landscape and Foliage tools to initially create the terrain and further populate it with rocks, vegetation, trees, and debris.

In terms of lighting I used Lumen, while Nanite was utilized for optimization purposes. Additionally, a custom layered landscape material was created to enhance the visual fidelity of the environment.

Moreover, an interactive firepit blueprint was integrated, featuring a UI popup upon player proximity and enabling fire control through key inputs.

I have also utilized DLSS 3.5 functionality with frame generation to improve the performance. It reliably increased FPS without any noticeable quality drop.

In addition, I have created a volumetric fog material that is applied to a box over the lake to hide repetition of water surface and give extra depth to environment.
