By the way, Sogun, has there been any progress on your porting of the Classic Nintendo Maps pack to Perfect Dark, yet?

I cant believe I missed the grass stuff all the way from April...
anyway, 3D textures look awesome, but yeah, high poly-count - although less than actually modelling every brick.

I think that reducing the layers and using tile tricks might achieve a better result at faster fps.

it would probably require ucode altering though to have a top layer only render for a set distance and then use tile effects for the rest.

so, for example, under your feet could be 3 layers of grass
2 of dots (the blades) 1 base.
then as the distance increases the top layers fade to alpha and are then clipped while the base layer transitions to tile2 which is a combined texture showing the grass from the side.

Since tile2 is already made for distance you wouldnt nee mip-mapping because you pre-bake that in.

you could increase the "shift" on the tile so it covers more area than the initial tile. (see TMEM doc for info on tiles and shift)

BUT, for doing this in vanilla GE.... Razz Laughing

Sorry, I only worked on it a little last year. I run out of steam in a week. Sad

I made some changes in Peach's Castle's background in order to expand the level a little and improve navigation so it fits better with all the PD mutiplayer modes. But I was doing it in the GE rom and haven't even tested it on console.

I couldn't keep my word and focus on this project. The few times I worked with the Editor was to test some ideas I had like the skybox or the grass effect.

Many years ago, when creating custom mipmaps began to be possible on Editor I thought of many different ways to use them and have cool looking effects. One of those ideas was to have grass with mipmaps that slightly tilted the blades until you see it sideways, but the result was horrible XDD. I was using a 32x32 8bit color texture so maybe with 64x64 GS you could get better. That's why I switched to the fur shading approach.

Heh, if we could make teselation like in Rogue Squadron things could look waaaaaay better. We need a custom N64 graphic engine, hehehehe.

No problem, mate.
