Title: Stratified Mesa
Post by: Urantia Jerry on December 20, 2017, 03:31:10 AM
While there are still problems (floating bush for example) these are my best rocks to date.

5 Strata layers mixed and masked differently, and (I know...) 5 Compute nodes.

Just trying to think 'outside the box' a little.  ::)

5 compute nodes? :D That's uncalled for.

The water is very rough. The terrain looks blocky. But I guess this was your aim. :)

No that was not necessarily my 'aim' what I said was this was the best I've been able to achieve to date.
Yes the water, Yes the compute nodes (I know...)
Thank you for your reply.

Looks cool. Lots of potential in this image.

If you managed to control five compute nodes then I'm sure you can tune it to your own liking soon enough. :)

I have never used 5 compute nodes before.  Like I said - it was something I did 'trying to think outside the box'.


Why is that such as issue with you? 


And more importantly - I am sorry - I will never do it again.

I do not know or care how you hooked your compute nodes....
If you are calling for lateral displacement, it is recommended to use such...
Without a preset blue node setup, I cannot even begin to achieve the same....

I have seen fake stone tutorials online that suggest spacing compute nodes between pyramids of stones so that you do not end up with your stones all clustered together....

Do what works for you, or I am going to start charging rent for compute nodes to supplement my retirement... :) :) :)

I'd be interested in seeing a screen grab of your terrain/nodes set up...simply curious...thanks.
Interesting result so far, has potential.

Yea Bobby...


I'm sorry this took so long.  I don't spend as much time on the Forums as I'd like. 


Here is a screen grab of the node network for that particular project, along with the World Machine devices I used.


If you have any more questions...  Let me know.

I'm sorry, try this...

heh heh, ooop's happen...so what's the other network from? a much neater node layout.

It's from World Machine.  That's what I use to sculpt, create and texture my terrains.


You can download a free (just like Terragen) copy here: https://www.world-machine.com/download.php.


I also use Quadspinner's Geoglyph: http://www.quadspinner.com/GeoGlyph#editions.


Also a free Community Edition.  ;D
