Title: Mossy Rock/Boulder
Post by: choronr on June 08, 2014, 02:25:21 pm
With this file, you should be able to glean the settings required to (1) displace a Sphere object so as to create a large rock or boulder; and (2), partially cover the rock/boulder with a population of grass objects so as to simulate Moss. See the link for details: http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,18456.msg179345.html#new

Enjoy.

Well I'm a tad disappointed as I couldn't get this to load, even long enough to delete the pops which I don't have. Could you maybe upload a Ver. 2 sans vegetation....I can populate on the rocks O K, and just got Walli's Lichen package for added realism. Thanks in advance Bob.

Thanks for the file,
   For an option - the moss/grass/fern model could be set to lay down nearly 90 degrees with its transform values to simulate the type that creeps along the ground.

hey many thanks for this @choronr! i'm experimenting with your moss because i want to use for my iceland WIP  ;) http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,19532.0.html. I tried with Walli lichen grabbed from here http://wallis-eck.de/2013/2013/05/project-lichen/  and i used the smallpatch023.tgo. See the image attached.

Thanks Walt, always enjoy working with rock formations, especially now with the ability of populating objects onto them.
