Hello! First post here, nice to meet y'all!
I am having a problem packaging a scene for html5. The scene doesn't use anything fancy, but uses default grass from the Open World collection (M_FieldGrass). During packaging I'm getting an error:
M_FieldGrass_Inst_01_LOD1.uasset: Failed to compile Material Instance with Base M_FieldGrass_01 for platform GLSL_ES2_WEBGL, Default Material will be used in game.
and I'm seeing a default material blob when looking at the grass from near in the packaged version (in the editor everything is fine).
I read this and this answers and as far as I understand this may be some inherent problem of html5 which unreal cannot solve on its own.
Do I understand correctly that this limitation is still a problem? From what I'm reading webgl 2, that supports ES3 is supported since 4.16. How do I use it?
If there's no way to make the grass as it is, is there an easy (automated!) way of setting the packaging such that it uses some less fancy version of the grass when packaging html5? As far as I understand I can edit the material myself (but as a beginner not really sure how I should do this) and then package, but I'd like to have a high-quality version in the editor that I can package for linux/windows and a lower-quality version for html5 without changing the materials every time I package for a different platform.
Is it possible? Thanks!
