    Hi, looks good, and I'm attempting something similar so I was wondering if you had any advice for setting up lighting in a large terrain?

    I currently have a landscape at 4033 or whatever the maximum is, and with the default lighting setup the lighting takes a long time to build, so I wanted to use dynamic lighting but I couldn't find any way of disabling the lightmapping, so I was left with black splodges all over the landscape :¬(

    What is LPV + DFAO ?? How do you set it up?

    cheers

      Thank you, no... there is no speedtree involved the trees are assets from the 3dmotive tutorial and the grass is a "never-ending back and forth"... now its a mix with different technics... mix betwen fully polygonal blades for near and one sided for far distances. I saw a document about real time grass and tryed some parts from it http://www.kevinboulanger.net/grass.html a great document!

      Hey... i tryed lightmass on 4k too but had a lot crashes. Since then i'm on dynamic gi and i love it so far. I think you should follow this link to set your lightning up https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Light_...ion_Volumes_GI

      And DFAO is distance field ambient occlusion https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest...ion/index.html

        thanks for your links

        I got lightmass disabled now and fixed my lighting issues - thanks for that! don't think I need to worry about DFAO either right now

        Next job, I want to get displacement working on the rock layer :¬)

          Think this will be the last screen for the next weeks. Want to do a good amount of assets first. But its awesome what a amateur like me can do with UE4!

          Looks great! Was any of this landscape texture painted, or is it all based on heightmaps? Also, how did you create that little path in the last screen? Thanks and keep up the good work!

            Hey, thanks!

            No, its painted but different detail layers depends on height and slope. I use a big texture too, for tinting grass an get some color variation in the detail textures. That path is realy simple, i made a plane with enough resolution (in 3d app), put a tiling texture on it and use it as landscape spline.

              Hey all,

              took a long break to wait for 4.8. After seeing the kite demo i'm not longer satisfied with my old progress

              Finally 4.8 released and i'm back on track again. Its time to dig all the new features.

              Opened my old project in 4.8 but i think i have to redo most of it in order to get the new features in.

                  I really like the look of this. The work is inspiring and gets me reared up and wanting to do some world creation myself.

                      Would you be so kind to share your material graph with us beginners?

                      Thanks!

                          Fantastic work! I'd love an update on this project with details of the material and lighting setup.

                            Long time... sometimes things happen in life we can't plan. I ported the map to 4.12 and made some changes to the grass but nothing more. I still want to work on the map but time is my enemy. Sorry...

                                Thank you!

                                I have to say... with such an large enviroment i cant stay focused on making assets. Today i painted mostly stylized stuff and had to try some of it in this enviroment. I really like stylized stuff but i like realistic too... cant decide wich way to go
