Here is my latest incarnation of the Mojoliths clip.  Some serious tweaking went on, the most notable is was to put a reverse displacement onto the standing structures positive displacement to give them a more disrupted look.  That and I scaled down all of the surface features - and added a couple more.

Of course, if you believe the world is flat and made only for planting trees, this file won't be of any benefit... ;)

Hope you enjoy!

Great looking rock piles. This will be fun to look at and see how you managed this.
Actually my world has a clipping region somewhere in the distance. Try as I might, I can never reach the border. Does this mean I live in an expanding Universe?

 ;D Ha, ha - Expanding universe?  Maybe so.  My world is stuck in a space time continuum.  Wherever I roam, the Sun and Moon remain in the same spot in the sky.

That's great obvious use of functions, will check this out!
Heard of computer graphics? CG? Terragen 2, the landscape generating program, also known as TG, a whole cool way to create realistic CG - with TG.

But, but, but I wasn't done exploring the first clip yet!?
And now there's a whole new time loop with an expanding universe? Wonder what Albert would say...

Never mind, thank you nevertheless, Rich.

Thanx for sharing.
Put this on a sphere and animated the radius from 30 up to 35000, while moving the camera away from the ball at the same speed.
This realy shows the "limits" of terragen. ;D
This will create a cool effect with the mojoliths "jumping" out from the surface.
When the sphere gets bigger, it reminds me of the sun and the "boiling" look it has.

Need to find a way to make the same effect without effecting the radius. (and make it glow,give light and all that)



1.Image is with the radius set to 1 (with a reflection shader)
2.Is around 40
and last is 4100

Last thing. Found this bird looking mojo.


Added:
Animated the thing.

Got to admit - I never would have thought of something like that, though I see how it is possible.  You must have put a ton of work into creating the animation morph and it's super cool!  A sun-like globe?  Interesting, but it looks somewhat organic to me  - so how about if those liths started spitting out more of the same kind of spheres and they did the same, populating the galaxy with those wonderful life-things...  Originally created by Rich2... YES! YES! Bwah-ha-ha-haaaH!!!

Oops - got carried away for a moment - but that was interesting - !
