Winter Moons
« on: December 18, 2011, 03:04:33 AM »

For the most part I like this, but I'd like to figure out how to get rid of those fat white dots scattered around the snow.  I used TU's Snow Pack and I've noticed that such things turn up now and then.  How do I stop that from happening?

Look inside the nodes. There's probably a sparkle node that needs to be shut down or blended by a distance shader for sparkles only within 100m or so. By the way, I like the way the moons are 'glowing'.

I used the trick with small and dim suns behind the moons for the glow effect.

Do you or anyone else know exactly what to tweak to get rid of the white spots?  It's TU's Snow Pack doing it.

Take off the specular base child from thick snow.

Done and to good effect, I think.
