Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How can I make a realistic looking moss material ?


I've worked on this previously, I have a full list of things I've wanted to make but haven't achieved and so I'm really demolishing this section of the site, but my questions could be someone else's :)

I I want to create a realistic Moss material like the one seen in this picture alt text

I want my material to look as if it had 3D small leaves hanging, unless there's another way that isn't too hard on performance ( maybe I should add polygons and texture them on to the mesh but still I can't achieve something kind of realistic ) I just want my moss to have variation in colors, a really puffy/3D effect... I searched all over the internet and still haven't seen any tutorials on something like this, if I can't make something similar to this, all I really need is variation of colors ( lighter greens, darker greens, red-orange-yellow... brown ) but if I can achieve something close to the moss in this image, that would be perfect !

Cheers !

Resources to refer are many . Some of them are given below



create a master material that will allow you to be able to vertex paint the moss on any model: http://youtu.be/iS8wLVOJuUA

Set up a material with an up vector, so the moss will always be on the top side of whatever mesh it's on: http://youtu.be/yGjdobDOnXs
