    If we're fortunate, these tools will stay wholly independent and usable for people not invested in Unreal Engine. But I foresee a situation similar when when EA bought Criterion and third parties using Criterion's RenderWare engine were forced to look elsewhere as EA just let it stagnate. Games using RenderWare included GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas.

    Oh yeah, I hadn't thought of that aspect, but I completely agree. Let's hope it remains viable standalone in addition to becoming a freebie for UE licenses.

    Also if we're unlucky they will be only available in Unreal Engine, and considering the current times we live in, I'm willing to bet Murphy's Law is present more than ever in everything.

    Let's not turn a technical thread into a subjective comparison thread.

    Looks like they added a new indirection layer to runtime virtual textures on UE4.26, so now it should be feasible for large worlds while keeping millimeter precision.
