Planet Shaders... - Posted on: 12/23/2017   [OrbLands]

Updated the planetary menu with new shaders...

In my previous post I showed screenshots from two different shaders I'm testing for the planet menu. I was torn between which one to use, because they both have advantages/disadvantages, for example, one supports bump maps while the other doesn't and one supports transparency while the other doesn't.

I wanted to combine the shaders into one, but the code is very different between them and I couldn't figure out how to do that. So, I created a Child object/sphere within each planet and decreased its size, so the "glow" effect from the other shader can be seen. It's not the most efficient solution, but I'm pretty happy how it looks now!

Fish 5/13/2018
I used the fish textures from the previous experiment and created one large particle system that spawns fish under the water across the whole terrain.
Thanks for all the fish... 5/13/2018
I saw a neat effect on Twitter, where someone used a particle system to create a school of fish. I tried to create a similar effect in Unity...
Testing 5/12/2018
Disappointed that I still haven't been able to come up with more creative ideas for Orb Lands, but I'm often impressed by how it generates some really beautiful scenery.
