(*) The system is in active Beta stage, everything is stable and working in this first version, with certain limitations in the way lights can be activated in the scene. The system has not been tested in VR. Currently the system supports one directional and 6 local lights, an option to add more local lights will be added in next versions, though the 6 local lights number is recommended for performance reasons.
The volumetric shadows from Point Lights require the latest URP11. Lower versions of URP support volume shadows from directional and spot lights and Light volumes from all light types, including Point Lights.
The Ethereal asset has been developed and uploaded using Unity 2019.4.22f1 LTS.
Any later Unity version is supported as soon as possible through patches and
