Mesh Requirements

The shader assumes that the Y axis is up, be sure to adjust your meshes as necessary. Simply setting the shader on a material applied to the default Unity Plane Mesh will likely not work as expected since the axis is not correctly setup for that purpose.

The same applies to Prop, Ceiling and Floor textures.
