Important/Additional Notes:


After installing and enabling the plugin for the first time, if you see the message "Warning CreateExport: Failed to load Outer for resource..." on project start-up, close your project immediately without saving any of the Prismatiscape Blueprints.

The errors will be fixed permanently when you reopen the project (seems to be an Engine bug, will investigate soonTM)


Ensure "Enable Virtual Texturing" is ticked (Edit -> Project Settings)


You're good to go!


Any changes made INSIDE the Prismatiscape plugin folder will be reverted when you update to the next version - ensure you make Child Classes of anything you want to override, or override variables in the Component Instances when they're added to your Actors.
