Bush Group
« on: January 26, 2008, 05:15:29 AM »
Hi All,

Here are the bushes I used in the image seen in this post:  http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=3253.0

You'll need to reset the "sit on terrain" and "planet" connections, but the foliage colors and variation should be intact.

Let me know if you run into any problems.

The file is 64 MB or so, so if anyone wants to download and host it, feel free to do so (as I have it sitting on my server for now).

Many thanks Old Blaggard.

@Dhaval:  yes, these are from Dryad.  I opened them with poseray, then saved them with poseray (nothing else was done to them), then opened in TG2 as .obj file, then saved as .tgo.  Then I tweaked the shaders, and resaved as .tgo for each.

Then I built a distribution mask, and created the group.  The mask (which is a power fractal) can be randomized.  Or an image map can be used for more control.

Question,

If you don't have poseray could you open and save them in Blender if some one where doing this for them selves? Was it just a format conversion you did in poseray and if so what format where the models in when you saved them in Dryad before conversion to .obj files?   

Regards to you.

Hi Cyber-Angel,

The files start out as .obj files from Dryad, and stay .obj until I save them as .tgo in TG2.   8)

The ONLY reason I use Poseray is so the .obj files play better with TG2.  Poseray seems to bring .obj (or even other 3d format) files to a stable level.
