Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Grass

Postby xandaxs » Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:47 am

Hey guys...

Saw this image yesterday and I wondered, wouldn't this look neat in Urban Terror?
I wouldn't be easy to make it I believe, because the textures would need to look a like, a lot, but it's probably just one texture blended and moving on the main grass texture right?

It would cause huge fps drops i think.

Maybe.... I don't think so though. Unless the player is of course rendering huge areas textured with this.

It doesn't really look that complicated... just 1 or 2 textures, maybe animated, maybe scrolling... neither of which would cause much fps loss

That's an effect you would notice only from above, I think it looks bad when you actually play on it

It would probably end up looking like some kind of green water when standing on top of it.
You're better off using fur shader if you really wanna make a grass like effect. But to be honest even that looks rather crappy IMO.
