New Mexico by nukeation New Mexico by nukeation
Now that Mineral Infinity is out, we are resuming work on our (currently untitled) Grass Fields material. It is meant to simulate distant grass without using EcoSystems.

This is a WIP test render of that material which has been applied on an infinite terrain. The foreground grass is, of course, not the material.

Vue 8i + CPTx4

This image was inspired by our foray into New Mexico last year, where in the mountains near Los Alamos, there was a meadow that stretched on for at least 20 miles. Beautiful place!

That's really good- and it looks a little less busy than long-shot Vue grasslands sometimes can. Mission accomplished, I'd say.

I grew up in New Mexico and I have to say that you did an amazing job! Makes me homesick!

Excellent my friend and I'm even more impressed that you got it in such a small render, I mean the epicness is doubled by comparison, like a beautifully detailed recreation of the mona lisa on a stamp.

Seeing as you're so hot with materials, any chance you could give some recommendations for my shed/tardis model?
I'm currently working on upgrading the current model and well can't really swort out the materials.

Thanks. :)

Sorry, maybe some other time. The book is consuming almost all of my time right now.

Very impressive work on that grass material. I think the transition between foreground and background is quite believable.
