Hello Everyone.

The first massive update for Scatter called "Season1" is out with a cool new trailer! take a look:

Scatter is available right now on the Blender Market.


  • Added 4 new Scattering Presets.
  • Added 1 New fresh-cut lawn biome. (+3 new winter biomes if you missed the Christmas special event)
  • Added 10 ground materials in the manager.
  • Overall way better UI/UX experience (new color system, scroll bar, icons, panel organization, buttons, ect..).
  • New Biome manager categories, choose what you’d like to see between an AIO, layers, material, assets, or everything.
  • New Biome manager hides/lower display percentage/toggle proxy on creation options.
  • Compatibility with Graswald particle systems. (enable the export panel in preference, if you have GW).
  • The old Proxy system of Scatter is now a standalone universal addon called “Proxify” that can also generate proxy and work with animations, it will also add the option to remove a proxy. Proxify is integrated in Scatter Tweaking panel, but can also be found in object>viewport display for more accurate operations/tweaks.
  • New statistic tab, quickly generates an information sheet of all the Scatter particle systems of the scene with info of Particle count and polycount per particles, it's also a quick way to change the active target terrain on the fly.
  • Enabled Preset and Biome user Creation/Customization.
  • New Terrain tools, easily displace or generate terrain using a heightmap, get a clean border in a few clicks, or add procedural noises easily.

  1. Do you plan to include the use of custom objects for the particles in the future?. I understand that the current grass assets are optimized for a big amount of duplicates, but the application gets reduced to display only what you provide with it.
