Title: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Dune on September 17, 2015, 02:26:06 am
A few iterations and seeds of some rocky terrain (detail 0.6 AA6, but force edges to get rid of holes).

Oh boy, long ago!!

Ulco, these rocks are fantastic! Maybe Martin is right, a little less warp maybe?
And I really love Occlusion weight!!! A bit higher?? ;D ;D ;D (I'm an addict!!)

This last one looks very natural. The smooth and still nicely detailed rocks. Still, i wish we could stack fake stones on top of one another. That and use other noises besides only a voronoi. Imagine those possibilities.  8)
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: DocCharly65 on September 18, 2015, 02:54:30 am

Perhaps a less saturation of the tree colors? Or are they temporarily?

That last one is spectacular! It reminds me of the famous area in Southern California where many, many Western movies were shot, a place called Alabama Hills (google it). Your technique now allows for those types of rock formations and more. Brilliant!

Post by: Dune on September 27, 2015, 03:04:50 am
That was my favorite as well. Here's another one.

@David: I make my own trees, so it's not an existing one. I added a surface layer (and a snow setup with default shaders) with a slope restriction (final/Y) to the leaves for some snow, masked by a PF + transform shader for global distribution of that snow.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: kaedorg on September 27, 2015, 03:50:32 am
Thanks Ulco.
Not sure to do that but I gonna try such a setup.
You could also put this on NWDA store  ;)

Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Dune on September 27, 2015, 05:22:50 am
Some important things; use compute normals between shaders if you want the next shader to displace according to the newest normals. And use strata. That's all I'm gonna say.

I'm really wondering how the upcoming procedural erosion node would behave on this kind of terrain.

Daniil just made a newer version, which I'm about to test. I haven't yet made a combination of eroded terain and these rocks.... back to the drawing board.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: zaxxon on September 30, 2015, 12:30:49 pm
better and better and better...
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Dune on October 01, 2015, 02:12:32 am
Tried some erosion with Daniil's shader, but had to use a way around to not collapse the whole setup. Luckily there are ways (inversely smoothing by inversed flow map). But next would be to get some talus with broken rock in the gullies, it's now only eroded but still having the squares.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: AP on October 01, 2015, 02:42:35 am
Building up talus rock piles at the base of the steep slopes could be the icing on the cake.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Dune on October 04, 2015, 02:36:39 am
Well, here's a little icing. Daniil's erosion shader at work. There are still issues though he can hopefully sort out.

erosion+blocks_3oct15-v2.jpg and erosion+blocks_3oct15-v3-4.jpg are the best in my eyes.

in erosion+blocks_3oct15-v3-1.jpg I see strange rock formations (looks like a building in the middle)
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: AP on October 04, 2015, 06:49:36 pm
The last three very much shows a lot of specific small scale details that i do not see to often which is the sense of loose dirt, tight color details and rocks where they should be with the case of the erosion this time. I like how the rocks are more rounded which gives the impression that they are stacked over one another.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Kadri on October 04, 2015, 07:27:53 pm

It's the same file as the renders with all the rock debris, so all TG, no post except for quick auto adjust colors  in Irfanview in the last one. Just another location and some added cloud and a 'torch' to open up the sky to let the sun only shine here.

It is determining where the fake stones go, or it is creating fake stones?
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: AP on October 05, 2015, 05:25:40 pm
The flow map created by the erosion plugin is what is acting as a mask for the fake stones if i recall correctly.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Oshyan on October 05, 2015, 05:47:35 pm
The erosion plugin produces some optional mask outputs and those can be used to control distribution of other elements like Fake Stones, object Populations, etc.

What is happening?
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: fleetwood on October 15, 2015, 01:14:49 pm
Kadri :
The "make river" height field is auto generating so it tries to generate the river as soon as the tgd opens . It can't be aborted and after a few seconds of generating Terregen crashes. The only way I've found to use those old tgd's is to hand edit out the make river node. 
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: Kadri on October 15, 2015, 01:27:08 pm

I see. Is there no line to turn it off in the file?
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: fleetwood on October 15, 2015, 01:38:35 pm
It couldn't be turned off. The "make river" had no flag for setting generate off. Just has to be removed.
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks

Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: AP on October 16, 2015, 01:39:22 am
Make river was only good for a basic hero river so having actual fluvial channels and complex drainage networks would be out of the question.

I failed to mention the fact that in another thread that Matt was experimenting with a procedural river shader.

I might elaborate on this one with better veggies. Renders fast also, 30min, as no compute terrain needed.

Hmmm...I don't know...to me this is quite a big step back from where you came from.
The last ones I commented on, were the best by far if you'd ask my truly honest opinion?

I'm with Martin. This last one is fine really, but not as good as some previous IMHO.

I like the one on this page. Just because the feeling of it is good. It feels like a place in a movie. But I like the stones on the last page better. In a few of those images where the square noise work is just about perfect.

The only major problem left that you don't appear to have full control over is the degree of the vertical of the square rocks, relative to the slop of the main hills. If you can get the rocks on the hills to be almost totally vertical apart from the slop of the hill they are apart of, then I think you will basically have solved it.

You do already have that going on in some of the images, but it looks like that it is happening random on its own. If you can find a way to control that as you like, then yeah, you did it, I think 8) 8) 8)

The one in reply #104 was set in a local simple shape gully with height restrictions. I might try putting that node set in a procedural terrain, which the last one is. Changing seeds of terrain and distribution of rock there always gives a 'good' result, and the road always passes through the rock outcrops. But I agree the #104 is nicer; they're totally different setups; I'm just exploring all possibilities.

The last one may not be the best, but nevertheless it's fantastic. Indeed like out of a movie.

Another setup again. The strange shadow in the sand is due to a slope restriction in a displacement intersection, a common problem.

Added a better version (no slope restriction in sand layer) with some different seeds also.

I like the choice in colors. The separation of soft and hard terrain along with the rock talus is a nice touch.

I can't exactly describe why, but the last one looks best for me.

Agree!
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks
Post by: otakar on November 09, 2015, 12:34:46 pm
The last one hits it right in that there is a pattern in the rock structure but with enough breakup that it does not seem engineered and appears very natural. Also that scree field or looser rock in the top helps here by being different from the rest. The only thing that I noticed that was not as natural is the sand boundary which is a bit too clean, too abrupt. It really is an amazing feat. To think that these rocks are generated and designed to look this way...wow.

Everything looks great, except these little bright plants are distributed way too even for my taste. A little clumping would be great.

You're right of course. Now let's see if I can get a road through here.....

Great works in each image of this topic!
Especially the clouds in the last image,they look so real !

These are beyond excellent!  The rock work is just getting better and better with each new image. I really like the foliage, and the clouds are some of the best I've seen you do. Great work!

The rocks are so neat but those clouds are just awesome. Very believable (Shape and Lighting). What is your secret?
Title: Re: And why not, even more rocks

The last one is another masterpiece in my eyes!
Everything so great - the rocks, the clouds, the vegetation... I love it!

To finish this off (for a while)...

The very last image is wild. It looks like someone took a fork and scraped the terrain.

So good Ulco. My favorite is the one above the last three, reply #137 I think. The last image however would be cooler with some "mist"ery around the lower half of the crazy mountain. Your variety in ground and groundcover is really good too!!

Like them both, but I think I hiked those red rocks once and lost my canteen there.  :)

Post by: Oshyan on December 03, 2015, 06:50:37 pm
Both are great. The texture on the "badlands"-like formations in the first of the recent 2 is quite good, overall (though a little spherical/blobby in parts). The 2nd image could be very Mars-like if you just recolored it, hehe.

Well, my excuse is that they're tests, and made for no other purpose than testing textures. I have some more ideas about making the Arizona Monument Valley type rocks.... (but I also need to do some real [paying] work)  :P

Some more experiments, but it's quite hard to get something decent. Back to the drawing board....

A few iterations and seeds of some rocky terrain (detail 0.6 AA6, but force edges to get rid of holes).


You stop making amazing things immediately! Lol

Really love the cliff edges along the faces with the dotted trees. I'd love to see the vegetation denser on them though. Like a small forest on a cliff. Seems scales could allow for it.

I am absolutely in love with that coloring in the second one! I'd love to get my hand on those PF for the canyon tests I'm working on. ;)

Colors are just 2; quite orange/red, XZ stretched PF, taken through a multiply color (blue) with a mix of stretched greys, then taken through a adjust saturation shader (blue) with another stretched fractal (near white, near grey).

Some more experimentation, see if I could fiddle a road in. I was also trying to combine this with Daniil's erosion shader, but that doesn't work (yet).
