Title: Mojoliths 3.0
Post by: RichTwo on October 04, 2010, 12:41:38 pm
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.

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.

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 - !
