Title: Mesaville
Post by: treddie on August 31, 2017, 09:20:23 AM
Kind of still in my Mars mode, I guess, but no, it's just Earth  :)

Built original landshape in GeoControl, but it lacked detail, too smooth.  So added texture in Terragen and went from there.  Would like to add more variety of desert plants but still looking for other good plant meshes.

You need more variety in colors too, but it's very promising. Have you tried a fractal warp shader over this? Might be interesting, erosion-like.

Yes the composition looks good. Just needs more detail.

Good start and agree with the others; also Dune has a bunch o free grasses over at NWDA you might find useful.

Hey all.

Thanks for your critiques.  I agree.  Will try your suggestions out.

Is there a link for NWDA?

It's supposed to be here: http://www.store.nwdastore.com/ (http://www.store.nwdastore.com/) , which is an internal link to the shop from here: http://www.nwdastore.com/ (http://www.nwdastore.com/) , but it looks like it's not there now  :o :( I'll contact Danny.
