Pokéball Substance

A procedural substance I wanted to try myself on. A flexible pokéball material that only needs a sphere to work.

It works; only using a sphere in Substance Designer (the standard one that follows with) you get a pokéball. It uses a height map to get the shape out. Not perfect, not the cleanest and height maps aren't the most efficient; but cool and fun.

The material allows to change between some preset pokéballs, but also opens up for the user to customize the color and add in their own icons and images (though the last part is not supported in Unity).

Was a fun personal project that turned out pretty decent.
