Stock 3d 'Snow & Sand' collection
A downloadable asset pack
This 'Snow & Sand' package contains what it sounds like it should - it includes a variety of winter objects, in .FBX and .OBJ format, plus some assorted 'desert' 3d object content as well.
There is also video overlay material here for VFX compositors - sand grains swirling around the camera view, and a lengthy video overlay of snow falling. All of that is in HD.
Pricing - This is now a $1.79 asset pack, slightly increased price to compensate for recent changes in Paypal fee rates - it's not huge but also certainly still not expensive. But if that's not good enough, know that I will use almost any holiday as a time to enact a major sale, usually about 8-10 times per year (often including New Year's, Valentine's Day, St. Patricks' Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas)... so if you can show up during one of those sales, you can often find a massive bundle deal with all my paid items for around $2 USD which is a pretty amazing price for thousands of texture files, decals, and overlays, hundreds of video elements and hundreds of 3d assets!
Next major sale date:
My next big bundle sale is St. Patrick's Day 2023. March 17, all 3000+ existing asset files plus all future updates to those, and indie games when they release, bundled for $2.27.
Note - 2021 - There's another major sale planned on all my content for Labor Day here on https://matthornb.itch.io and also on My Etsy shop. Until then, no big discounts planned.
Notes on usage: You can add use these 3d models in your own 3d renders, video VFX sequences, video game levels. You can make VFX shots and cutscenes using them. All of that, royalty-free, too, with no need to credit me. If you like this, though, I'd appreciate a comment or review here on Itch.IO.
Sales made here will also be extremely helpful in funding not only development of future stock media content but also indie games like Miniature Multiverse, which has cost a lot to develop already and still is not quite complete.
PLEASE RATE OR REVIEW IF YOU LIKE THIS:
Also, as usual, if you buy this, or anything else I'm offering here, I and everybody else browsing these pages, would appreciate it if you would please post an honest review, criticisms, suggestions and all, after buying. Reviews and star ratings and other forms of feedback like comments, are super helpful. I've sold over 30 items on Itch.IO so far but have yet to see a single complete star rating or review, just a brief happy comment on one of my first asset packs. Look, I do get that many of you would only be likely to post a response to a product that either provoked a strong negative reaction, or seemed like an 'important' or major purchase. A tiny - even forgettable - impulse-buy price, combined with a good but not outright incredible set of contents, might not seem to be worth posting a review about. But I encourage you to post one nonetheless. Positive or not, honest reviews do help others assess the value, the strengths and shortcomings of a product. So for the customers' sake, and mine, I'd really like more response to what I have here. The more this material takes off, the more I can continue to improve on it. Any review or comment wil be useful to me, so I know what I'm doing well and what still needs improvement.
If you're logged into Itch.IO you can rate this asset pack or add it to a collection for later, i.e. wishlisting, on the top right edge of the browser window. Or you can comment, at the bottom of this page.
COMMENTS & REQUESTS WELCOMED:
So, yes, I hope to hear some responses from all of you. Those responses have an impact! If, for example, I'm seeing a number of people all requesting a certain type of texture, 3d object, or video VFX element I may make that a priority in later updates. So I WILL respond to your feedback as much as I reasonably can. I welcome your replies.
A BIG THANK YOU to the people who have already purchased, some of you even tipped! THANK YOU!

I know, I know - updates planned for the start of the Halloween sale are behind schedule. But the new stuff added to these asset packs will be posted soon, likely within the next 24 hrs, before the sale's over.
The content I'm currently working to add across my various 3d asset packs by the afternoon of Nov. 1st, includes:
-birch tree (green and fall foliage)
-Overgrown swamp tree with Spanish Moss
-Rabbitbrush and Utah Honeysuckle shrubs.
-Black-eyed Susan and Indian Blanket [wildflowers]
-fallen leaves, decals.
There'll also be some scattered website updates starting at around that time, and some new itch.IO page updates & showcase renders including the new 3d content.
I realize that despite posts on various gamedev forums, within the Itch.IO community, in a few FB groups, and even a small $5 Reddit campaign focused on the r/gamedev community... and a grand total of 250+ visitors on my Itch pages during the last four days, I'm still nowhere near hitting the sales target I had aimed for. The Halloween sale is more than 60% over, but there have been no customers buying *anything* of mine during it. A shame, really, but if someone did step in and place an order now, or if some people who've already placed orders would *rate* the stuff they've ordered, it'd go a long way towards turning this around.
And that'd be great!
UPDATE POSTED, AS OF NOVEMBER 1st, 2019, noon.
While the new showcase renders on the pages aren't visible yet, the content of this asset pack HAS been updated [just a few minutes ago!]
New 'saguaro cactus' and 'rabbit brush' models have just been added to this 'snow and sand' asset pack. And a mix of other items [birch tree variants, etc] have been added elsewhere, mostly to 'forests & flowers' which is getting a major update uploaded right now.
So there's never been a better time to grab these asset packs!
