Peel back away all the layers in a standard urban wall. You can put in your own bit mask and it will completely adjust everything from the insulation holes to the wall paper peels accordingly.

Please feel free to comment. I did actually end up removing some of the micro detials to keep it rendering fast. I recomend tweaking in 1024 at most then go to 2 or 4k when you like the shapes. When I do that it takes less than 1-2 seconds to recalculate even when changing the custom mask (which makes every material recalculate) I have a GTX 970 and Skylake I-7.

UPDATE: added back in a lot more detail to areas. not quite as fast to process, but the paper and plaster especially have a lot more realistic detail. Also added in my development notes to show more of my though process.

Really cool! This would work well for stylized rendering (a la team fortress?) A lot of love went into this one i think :D

Really love how much depth you got into this. Seriously good.

Sorry I am only getting the pipes and a black wall. would love to check this out in its full glory.

Ok there was a bug with the thickness. If you put the thickness of the pipes to 0 then it messed up the height map blending and covered everything in the pipe material. I fixed it in the pending update, but if you make your pipe thickness more than 0.01 and use the "Quantity" slider to make 0 pipes it should work even in the current one.

I'm new to how do you get that depth when I put the material on a surface in UE4 it just looks flat and doesn't have that appearance of being 3D.

There are 2 ways. Bump offset or displacement. Bump offset is better for performance, nut it only stretches the texture over itself, so it will look 3d when looking right at it, but from the parallel sides the illusion falls apart. Displacement will push and pull the vertices in 3d space making it truly 3d, buuuut it can't do anything if there aren't any verts, so if you were to apply it to a plane you would need to subdivide it many times (or use "tessellation" in the shader settings, which basically does the same thing). Here is a tutorial for displacement in UE4:

Thank you Zacvrono but how did you do it? I am trying but sucking it up lol its coming out odd looking

How did I do what? the displacement effect to make it 3d? I actually just used substance designer not UE4, but it should work the same if you follow that tutorial. make sure to use the height map like he does. If i remember correctly you might have to change the shader type to allow a displacement input and enable tessellation. He shows it in the tutorials about 50 seconds in. That might be the problem. Sorry hard to tell what the problem is without seeing pictures :S
