Quixel Bridge Plugin

There's a plugin for s&box that allows you to use Quixel assets super easily with one click using a program known as "Quixel Bridge". This guide will help you set up and use this plugin, in the hopes that it'll supercharge your workflow and allow you to quickly make high-quality content.

This plugin is not written or supported by Facepunch. Please be aware that the 'free' Quixel tier is for use with Unreal Engine only. This tool should only be used with either the 'Personal', 'Indie', or 'Studio' Quixel tiers.
