so right now im trying to find out the best terrain solution moving forward, i learned that there are three main options:

 

1  Modular mesh terrains that we are used to in forge which work well on smaller scale and can be very precise, but takes more time to get right

 

2 Height map terrain which is very performant for big open landscapes but only calculates verticle terrain height (you cant make caves or overlapping features)  

 

3 voxel terrain which lets you sculpt terrain formations any way you want, with caves, twirls, overhangs and anything else you can imagine, very comfortable workflow, very easy to make slight changes on the go (this was the method used to make Fantasia) the downside to this is the mesh is pretty low res, the tris really start to show if you want smaller details, which can lead to a rounded play dough look 

 

that's everything i've gathered so far, i really like the voxel workflow, ideally i would combine the voxel workflow and blend hand made models for smaller details into the terrain, but i also want height map blending on all the textures which gives you very cool effects like grass and dirt in between stone tiles, and l also want mesh texture blending, so when i merge cliff models into my voxel terrain the seams blend together and it looks just like part of the terrain

 

so thats what i want, i've been looking at solutions for these goals in both unreal and unity. Unity has a expansive height map terrain feature list, letting you blend 32 height map textures with tesselation and its all vert comfortable workflow, but the voxel plugin for that is kind of weird, it a hybrid of voxel terrain and unitys default height map terrain, after getting everything set up it feels really clunky

 

Unreal has a voxel plugin, its the same thing that Core games uses so i'm already familiar with that, but they only let you blend 6 height maps, which is better than the 4 in core but nothing compared to 32

 

so yeah that's been my homework lately, trying to keep a distance while i just learn all these tools and then settle into an engine amd workflow eventually

This tree is finalized! Done! May add a few extra tertiary vines and what not. The rest actually look fine for now but I'm still not done with the other 3 trees. Theyre still placeholders for the final tree passes


Also huge shout out to Quixel! /s for having free assets like these ferns I stuck all over the trees lmao. I'm just going to use some quixel shit to fill in the small details like vegetation and what not. I'm not modeling that shit.. Way too time consuming to model and UV map it.

 

And I know what you're thinking... JB it's just a stupid tree. Get your stupid tree the fuck outta here.... Bro making trees is one thing, but making other trees that WRAP around the other tree is a fucking nightmare. Now it's ez tho I have perfected the art of tree bending.

so someone reasoned that all the promo screenshots are pretty much in close proximity to eachother.

 

Hopefully this doesn't mean the game is literally one biome and this is all we get....

 

 

Hopefully they are keeping some things hidden from us for a surprise. but I don't really expect to see anything like CEs snow or swamp levels or desert plateau. =(

 

I mean EVEN CE DEMO TRAILER HAD MORE VARIETY

it may still be there. YOu can see the grime at the top. It's probably a decal and has no normal map so it won't react to the lighting until you're in the right angle facing it., my map does something similar with my stains, you can see the lighter stain to the right of the dark spots. It disappears with the lighting. even the dark one starts to fade a bit in the center with the light.

...As He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the world?"

 

And Jesus answered and said unto them, "Take heed that no man deceives you. For many shall come in My name, saying, 'I am Christ', and shall deceive many. And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

 

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and you shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because sin shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

 

"When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whosoever reads, let him understand), then let them which be in Judah flee into the mountains. Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house. Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that breastfeed in those days!

 

"But pray that your flight is not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day; for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, 'Look, here is Christ, or there', believe it not.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

 

"Behold, I have told you before.

 

"Therefore if they shall say unto you, 'Behold, he is in the desert', go not forth; 'Behold, he is in the secret chambers', believe it not. For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the vultures be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.

 

"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

 

"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh. So likewise, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

 

"But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away. So shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore; for you know not what hour your Lord does come.

 

"But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be also ready: for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of man comes. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes, shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, that he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

 

"But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, 'My lord delays his coming', and shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken, the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

 

Matthew 24:3-51

He hasn't got any faults, but maybe he's not perfect. But he didn't do anything.
