Your work is truly incredible: the lavender and sunflowers as well as the grass model are amazingly realistic!  :o
It's fabulous to see such a level of perfection with such an old game, and I can't wait to see more of your mountain village.  :thumbsup:

These plants looks great  :thumbsup: I am really surprised by the result swapping away the modeling phase. Even the redundancy is barely noticeable  &apls &apls

Lavender result is nice, much nicer than anything I attempted regarding this species  ::)

Hi ,


Previously;



But it was a year ago, corn has replaced sunflowers and the wild flora has evoluated;



Cornflower (Cyanus segetum)  has been improved, yarrow (Achillea  filipendula) and fireweed (Epilobium angustifolia) have appeared:







Previously, I was unable to MMP more flora, while I was thinking that my kSC4FloraParametersProperty was a killer… due to the scale, it was outdated; the new one is a killer, I can plop almost indefinitely, at least more would have no sense. I have dropped the 11th rep. from 0.10000 to 0.010000:




… I don’t know if that value is in meter ::) but it doesn’t matter. ;) Another point which irritated me many often, the minimum space to respect before to be able to start a new sequence whithout finishing the active one … that’s now solved too by dropping  the Flora: Cluster max radius value from 1.3 to 0.1 (I don’t know either if that value is in meter but it doesn’t matter more  ::) ) ;



… let’s say that the cursor of the mouse has now to stay perfectly immobile if you want to browse a complete sequence. :-[  These changes are, of course, valid and relevant for that kind of small flora only and it needs such a MMPing precision that you’re forced to go beyond zoom 6. The other dark side is that ctrlX SizeOf 5 zoom level is extremely addictive and that’s hard to come back to regular zoom levels and make do with them.  ()sad()

Next wild small flora, already in the pipes:




Burdock (Arctium lappa), thistle (Silybum marianum) and hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum).The most difficult (and time consuming) is to extract correctly these plants from their background.

*******************************************************

Thanks Antoine, that said, I think this method is reasonably practicable to small flora only…that’s more complicated that I’ve shown, it is almost impossible to replace a FSH without correcting the UVMapping for XY position, then SC4ModelTweaker to correct the Z axis. The benefit of small flora is that you don’t need to replace the 20 FSHs, those for zoom 6&5 ( they’re the same) then, those for zoom 4, is largely sufficient.

manga rivotra; thanks for your enthusiast comment. :thumbsup: Well, I’m doing all these wild flora for the village suroundings, so … it could take some time … a teasing close up for you:



You should be able to see it full sizes (1600x900) by left clicking on it. ;)

Hi,


Is there something, by this world, more delicate, lithesome and fragile than butterflies ?  ::)



A « Paon-du-jour »  (European Peacock Butterfly/Aglais io) , gathering nectar from dandelion (Taraxacum) flowers …



Zoom 6, for the corn field …





Zoom SizeOf 5 for hogweeds (an invasive, toxic and dangerous plant from Caucasia) and thistles …



Alejocgc13’s Mercedes_Benz truck and Girafe’s car from vol.4, both  resized up 1.2, Girafe’s Berries resized down 0.7 ( and maybe not the first time I resized it down, I can’t remember…)

Zoom SizeOf 10 for the very first dandelions…



Zoom SizeOf 20 for the European Peacock Butterfly…



Next step, zoom SizeOf 30 for SC4 ants ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

When I see all these plants in "UltraHD mode" (same for re-skins trains), I tell myself that I don't need a 3D game: everything is there and this new way of creating flora could well extend the life of this game further.  &apls &apls &apls
Thank you for that !  :thumbsup:

Gorgeous! I'm amazed at how much you can achieve without actually having to use a 3d modelling program  :thumbsup:
