Take your aquatic environments to new depths with our Humpback Whale, enhanced by a procedural spline animation system for fluid and dynamic movements. The whale interacts in a lifelike manner, opening its mouth near the player and even singing optional ‘whale songs’ for immersive engagement.

This package is a one-stop solution, featuring 2 swimming animations and 3 distinct poses, all unified in a Blendspace for natural motion. With 4 Levels of Detail and dual texture types, you have the flexibility to optimize for both performance and visual fidelity. The pre-configured Material parent grants you granular control, allowing you to fine-tune details such as scratches, dirt, and roughness channels.

To help you hit the ground running, we’ve included a demo scene complete with underwater PostProcess settings, caustic lighting, fog, and depth of field. This scene showcases multiple whales navigating pre-set paths, illustrating the power and flexibility of our Spline Blueprint system.

Rounding off this comprehensive package, we’ve added a posed static mesh of the whale suitable for museum displays. It comes with a uniquely plastic-like Material to mimic a museum exhibit, and an alternative rusted, mossy texture for those looking to create an atmosphere of abandonment.

In short, this asset provides a complete toolkit for bringing the majesty of the Humpback Whale into your Unreal Engine projects.
