Another random environment... - Posted on: 10/17/2018   [Uncategorized]

I made lots of improvements to this new environment...

I updated the gem shader, water shader and caustics, added dust clouds, grass settings, etc!

It's funny, I'm basically reverting back to a more simple and stylized version of the terrain generation system, which is really similar to the early versions of Orb Lands. But I'm trying to make this version tighter and more focused. I've been struggling to finish Orb Lands for a long time, and its because I never had a strong/deep storyline, or objective, or anything like that.

And while I don't know what to do with this new project either, everything about it is easier to manage and easier to adapt.

I am constantly conflicted between wanting to make something realistic versus something simple and stylish. I have so many different versions of this project now... its silly.
