Terracing Effect Function
« on: November 01, 2018, 10:06:44 PM »
Here is a packaged and organized Terracing Effect function from recent discussions over here: https://planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,25850.0.html

Scales are pretty high in this example to show the effects of different settings.

Big thanks to everyone that helped tackle this issue.

Links are broken when I open it, but that may be my old TG.

But... You know what. I'm not even going to question it and just fix it... (I literally saved the document [finalizing], than rendered)

Oh well, allows me to fix some things in the clip descriptions.

Please let me know if they're still broken. I reloaded the scene and it seems OK now.

Gotta point out, that buildup effect does a great job simulating sedimentation by flow, which you can than apply strata and outcrops too, limited by minimum slop to hug the more shear cliffs.

Nicely done, just plug in as a child of a surface layer and it works a treat.
Thankyou

I'll have to give this a whirl to see what I can get out of it.  Looks to be quite adaptable.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Bobby, I don't think I could have done with without help from Hetzen, Dune, mhaze, and Matt. All really helped with ideas and direction, not to mention mhaze taking off with the optimization of it all.
