    Excellent addon, and the problems described by other users appear to have been fixed by now. Not just a pretty comprehensive material library but also a material tool of sorts, enabling you to mix, blend and fine tune your materials. Download size was quite small for the 0.5k pack, but decent quality even at that resolution. I've bought quite a few material library addons and this could be my favourite.

    refuses to add libraries ,Unusable and uninstalled after losing $, it seams its demanding the massive unzipped expaks with each update so if you deleted them its hours of downloading again

      I'm very sorry to hear that you gave a negative rating for the addon, but I want to point out that there is some inaccurate information in your statements.

      I tried to provide assistance and responded as quickly as possible, just 4 minutes after receiving your message in BlenderMarket chat trying to understand what the problem was, but I got a quite offensive response without giving me any way to even help you wanting.

      The installation procedure is clearly documented, and it is not necessary to re-download the packages with each update. Furthermore, I also sent a notification to all users a few days ago after the last update, underlining that it is not required to download the packages again!

      The addon actually has a "huge" library, but the updater doesn't need to re-download the packages at every update!

      It would be useful if you really need help, if you contact me in a "Human" way via message so that I can understand and possibly explain how to solve the potential problem you have encountered or if you even just need clarification.

    Let me start with the key takeaways. This is a great add-on! You get a LOT for the investment, and it is a great way to build up your asset library if you donΒ΄t have many materials and textures "lying around". This was actually my first add-on for Blender a couple of years ago, and it has been used a lot. However, I do understand some of the other reviewers' frustration with regard to slow download speeds. The fact that I have yet to download all the materials myself pretty much tells the story. But I am glad that this situation has been greatly improved. So much actually that I also got the HDRi Maker add-on, which I have been a bit skeptical of acquiring since it also has a huge library of files. The download speeds are now utilizing my entire bandwidth so I can confirm that this issue has been fixed. When it comes to functionality and documentation things have also improved a lot in the last few years. As it stands I think this add-on is among the top 10 "bang for your buck" add-ons on the entire Blender Market, or at least among those I have tried myself, which is several hundred or even more. You get thousands of textures a few thousand materials, and you can mix and match everything so the combinatorial possibilities are huge. I do, however, have one request for a future update and that is to make it simpler to add custom assets to the user library. I have been having varied luck with this and sometimes my materials don't get added. Maybe a function that would generate an asset library of selected folders into materials for the user library could be a way to achieve this. Anyway, I feel that I have gotten enough value out of this product to easily justify the investment. Recommended!

      Thank you very much for your detailed and positive feedback! It's fantastic to hear that you've had such a positive experience with the add-on and that you find it an extremely useful and cost-effective addition to Blender. We're thrilled to know that download speeds have improved significantly and that you've appreciated the enhanced features and documentation over time.

      We also appreciate your request to simplify the addition of custom resources to the user library and your idea of a function to generate a resource library from selected folders. We will consider this proposal for future updates.

      Thank you again for your support and for sharing your positive experience with the add-on. We will continue to work towards providing an even better and more efficient product πŸ‘

    I believe that the developers of this addon will listen to their users and improve their problems.
    I would like the material node to be concise, like before the addon was unraveled to NEXUS. It's a simple way to organize nodes that connect image textures to Blender's default shader. Please don't use the original shaders. We believe that it is easier and more flexible for users to edit materials.

      Hello Tamaki! πŸ‘‹ It would have been useful to contact me, or take a look at the documentation πŸ˜… Anyway I'll help you from here, I hope it will be useful πŸ‘

      Extreme PBR allows you to create "Nexus" materials which are complex (And this is the default) or "Simple PBR" materials which are simple materials therefore easily editable manually, just like in previous versions.

      To do this, go to the Extreme PBR Nexus preferences and under the Options tab you will immediately find the Selector on which you can set "Simple PBR" all materials will be simple and easily editable from the node tree.

      I invite you to write to me before giving feedback if you have any doubts, it could be very useful, the addon has a lot of settings and usually they are constantly evolving, they are also documented, just go to the Documentation tab above and find the links to the new documentation on which, among other things, I'm putting a lot of effort into building it in the best possible way, and it is constantly evolving. I invite you to take a look, there is also a video tutorial section.

      In any case I'm sure you will appreciate this answer as it will help you find the setting you mentioned 😊 (at least I hope you will)

      I invite everyone to write me via message, here on the right side there is a button that says "Ask a question", I always reply to everyone (within a maximum of 24h usually even much less) don't worry, I'm here every day on purpose πŸ˜€ and I invite you to write to me too, so you can confirm if you managed to find the "Simple PBR" setting

      Best,
      Andrew

    Avoid this like COVID - More like Extreme waiting game. 17 hours to download 5% of the assets and I'm on a fast internet connection. What a waste of time and money. An absolute joke of a product that over complicates things for no reason.

      I am sincerely sorry that you have been facing slow and difficult issues in downloading files through my site. I would like to assure you that I have listened carefully to feedback like yours and have taken decisive action to address this situation. As of August 20, 2023, I've started distributing the libraries via the BlenderMarket, which should greatly improve the download experience and ensure faster and more reliable access times for users around the world.

      Also, I'm happy to announce that I've released the latest version of the addon, version 4.1.100, which not only includes new features but has also been further optimized to ensure smoother and faster overall usage. This version was developed with the aim of simplifying and improving the user experience by fixing issues that may have led to complications in the past.

      I acknowledge that the download speed and extracting files caused inconvenience and slowdowns. Therefore, I am happy to share that these aspects have been carefully considered and addressed with the recent improvements.

      I also want to point out that I continue to keep the service active on my website for those who may still prefer this option or to deal with special situations. Also, I'm here to provide day-to-day assistance and resolve any issues you may encounter in using the addon. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should any further difficulties arise.

      I appreciate your support and patience during this time of transition and service improvement. I sincerely hope that you will give my addon another try and experience for yourself the improvements I have made.

      Thanks again for sharing your feedback and for the opportunity to improve.

    extremely disappointing. I'm trying to reinstall this after several months of inactivity. Now the creator requires some kind of signup process. I did that. The English on the site is - well - concerning. I created an account, went through the process- but then when using the account information to continue the process for downloading the plugin - I get an error message not acknowledging my account information. The site feels like an Extremely slow wordpress site. I'm losing trust - fast.

      I am deeply sorry for the negative experience you had with my addon and library download process. First, I want to thank you for sharing your thoughts and detailed feedback. Your feedback is of great value to me as it helps me understand where I can improve and ensure a better experience for all users.

      I would like to address the concerns you raised in depth. I understand that the registration required and the site's English contributed to a feeling of concern. I sincerely apologize for these issues. I want to let you know that I'm working on improving the overall experience.

      In the past, I've chosen to distribute the libraries through my site to avoid any file size issues on platforms like BlenderMarket. However, I now recognize that this choice has created download speed and file extraction problems in some parts of the world. That's why I decided to move the distribution via BlenderMarket, which should solve this problem and greatly improve the situation.

      Since August 20, 2023, I made the addon available in version 4.1.100, with new features and more improvements. Hope this updated version can bring a better and smoother experience for users.

      I want to emphasize that I am an independent programmer and not a large company. I am constantly working to offer the best possible product, but sometimes technical challenges can arise. I sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding in this process.

      I will continue to keep the service active on my site for those who prefer this option. However, I have also implemented a more reliable service via BlenderMarket, which should fix slowness issues and ensure a more efficient download process.

      Finally, I want to emphasize that I offer assistance every day and I am here to help you solve any problem you may encounter. Don't hesitate to contact me if there are any further problems or questions.

      Thank you again for your sincere feedback and I hope you can see the improvement in the experience with the addon. Your opinion is important to me and I am working to offer a better product and service to all users.
