Well done Kadri. I really like this. The model fits in perfectly and I'm intrigued to know why it was built there and what it does. Great scifi!

Thanks guys.

Above i mentioned the flocking creatures that i couldn't make because of problems.
I should get some sleep but i got curious and made some tests.
This is the old thread about the problem (if it is the same one):
https://planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,21503.msg216279.html#msg216279

80903-0

I haven't read all what we wrote in that thread, but it looks like the same problem happens
even if you only change the values in the "Area rotation" option in the populator itself (with the object Transform values unchanged).

This is with Windows 10 64bit, Terragen 4.1.18 64 bit.
The same problem was in 4.1.15.   I installed 4.1.18  just because of this problem yesterday.
Is this the same old bug?

Thanks.

I was nearly going to use this. Just wasn't sure about the red colour.
But i like this one too. There is a little contrast and sharpening.

No. I didn't. The other one looks, to me at least, just a little bit more realistic.
But this one does have more...punch or whatever you could call probably.
I liked both of them. Choosing one was hard unfortunately.

I really love what you came up with here. One of the things that sets apart a great image from just a nice one is telling a story, and it can be very hard to do without human characters, or at least animals, etc. You've succeeded in doing that here with a simple structure, and that's been a hallmark of much of your work in recent years, including the incredible planet-spanning structures in your VR challenge submission which are still some of my favorites. This one reminds me for some reason of the cliff-side structures constructed within the walls of the Valles Marineris on Mars in Kim Stanley Robinson's "Mars" trilogy... and that's a very good thing to be reminded of. :)

The bug is still there. I had it a few days back when I wanted to populate small stones on a vertical plane; they all sat in rows.

Inspiring. Looks like somewhere Riddick would visit.

Thanks all.

Sometimes it happens by accident and i am not shy to admit that. But here i tried to get such a feeling.
Sweet that it gave you that feeling. The basic "Cliff structures" name was deliberate too .

Still on my reading list.

Thanks for confirming Ulco.

Ahaha...When i tried to put the flock of small flying creatures i thought for a second if this "will this kind of remind the Riddick movies"  actually. Haven't seen it since many years.

Very nice. Btw. did you make this 'simply' by tilting the camera? I would do that if you 'just' have a cliff, no ground.

Yes just got closer and tilted the camera. The cliff is a displaced Terragen cube object Ulco.
