The entire landscape is TG2 generated. :)
I've done this before but it relied on an image map for the main displacement... No more! ;)
Just 2 plane objects make up the waterfall - Terrain plane/Water plane. Different water shaders are applied to different areas of the displaced water plane using surface layer height constraints. 

Thanks to Lightning for the pinus bush pack by the rocks and the near-camera bush from his first bushes pack. Cheers, J! I used a leaf texture on the nearest one instead of the default colours, some leaves still look horribly planar though.

The rocks and bushes by the edge disguise the intersection of the waterfall object and the planet's terrain.

Thanks for looking!

agree with O_B....vere, very nice work!!!


Excellent, dandelO.  Right on!

Is this your entry for the 3D World (Planetside) contest?
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?


Em, OK. I don't like to impose myself on anyone though, so if anyone needs to render it for me(doubtful) it would be really appreciated. I'll link it in the other thread. There is some postwork here, nowhere near 30% though. A quick tidy up of some edges and colour correction.


I could render it for you- I have a quad here.



Since my Hanging Valley waterfall isn't working so well, I could really do with the TGD of yours, so I can figure out what I'm doing wrong...


Well since you have the beta now I could send you the version of this file I have made up for my public library. It is pretty much the same as the above image, it's the same waterfall objects and POV anyway, the only differences are there are no bushes, it's a heightfield generate for the 'real' background terrain(mine is a saved TG2 terrain in this image), and there's an extra rock on the bank to blend it better with the terrain. I'll PM you it, Mohawk.

I'll put it up for everyone else once I have finished my Volume.3 folder...


Monks: That would be very much appreciated if I need to have it re-rendered.
Thanks for your offer. :)

Thanks a lot man!
