3D grass preview
« on: May 04, 2012, 12:57:06 pm »

Very early WIP preview of 3D grass. Doesn't blend with distant grass yet, but it uses its colors and height and avoids patches of dirt without grass:

Short blades:


Medium blades:


Long blades:


Performance/lighting/regular patterns - all subject to WIP, but interestingly the performance doesn't change with the length of the grass blades. It's cool to literally see the grass grow :)

Wow, that looks stunning and will look really amazing with terrain shadowing and distance blending... how's the performance hit with this density of grass?

I have a pretty sweet computer, but I can't hear it whimpering in fear right now just displaying the pictures.  :P

Wouldn't this make it more difficult to catch those noisy crickets?  ;D

Off topic a bit, but even more noticeable in these pictures... I know this varies in real life, but I feel that the atmospheric scattering, or whatever it's called, is a little bit too strong.  (I have yet to mess with the more advanced visual settings though).
