Title: Outerra Seasons.
Post by: KW71 on September 25, 2016, 02:31:21 pm
Read carefully, please:

1.- I made this set of billboards (autumn & winter) as a special task for Uriah, so all the credits are for him.- Download files here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/yew7hjvurbzs4e3/bb_seasons.zip?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fbhzsqzqd8ryzz7/earth2-winter.zip?dl=0

2.- Delete  your bb folder   ( program files\outerra\anteworld\textures\trees\bb )

3.- Unzip "bb_seasons.zip" in    program files\outerra\anteworld\textures\trees

4.- You have now 3 versions: bb_summer (regular one), bb_winter & bb_autumn.

5.- Rename the folder you want to use to just "bb" (you can have only one season working).

6.- Unzip "earth2_winter.zip" in your user/YOUR_USER/Outerra/data    directory.  You'll have the option to acces to earth2_winter in the login screen, when you use the bb_winter billboards.

IMPORTANT NOTES:


- This is not the official way OT will handle seasons; consider it a MOD.

- Because of this, you'll find many snowed places with some trees without snow, and vice versa. If you want to have both with snow, travel to really cold locations.

- The track in Siberia, made by Acetone, is a really good option to drive among the snow.

Awesome work :)

Autumn is really nice, especially in some locations, especially Canada. With some tree parameters tweaks, you can end up with really nice results!

I had a thought ...
You can enrich the set of trees with bushes and colorful flowers?
It would be very nice to have the flowers scattered on the hills and in the plains!
Using the same method the trees also the shrubs and flowers swaying in the wind would move!
And the mushrooms?
Look for mushrooms in the woods is already exciting in the real world ... I'd like to play it in Anteworld!

It might be an idea?

I don't know whether the engine is already powerful enough for rendering additional shrubs, flowers, grasses etc (even if  they are only billboards). Tree density alone should be 4 times higher to be realistic in some cases.

The current one is intended only for big species. Shrubs and flores, etc., will be handled in a different pipeline. I'm sure our patience will pay  :)
