How green was my valley

…pretty f**king green, as it turns out.

This is just a quick update to show what my terrain looks like when you replace comedy stand-in cubes with actual grass textures, which is what I spent this morning doing. The effect is amazing, if I say so myself. (And I do. “Amazing”. There you go.) I still can’t get over just how much stuff I can draw, and how fast, on today’s graphics hardware

The joke is, the finished game probably won’t even have grass in it. Or at least, not great rolling swards of it like this – I want it to look like an alien planet, not Middle-earth by way of New Zealand. But this was a great proof of concept.

Next task: making my grass sway gently in the breeze.

…OK, the comedy stand-in coloured cubes were more fun. Let’s have the comedy stand-in coloured cubes again.
