View Full Version : Sand and landscapes

09-28-2010, 12:56 AM
Hi, I am considering purchasing the full DMM for serious games development and need to first ask a few questions.

Is it possible to effect the ground/landscape properties in the same way objects/assets are effected and materials?

Is it possible to create sand, dirt and change the properties of these different ground materials?

Whoa, sorry for the late response! your message got hidden somehow. Hopefully you will take my late response is better than no response :)

You can indeed affect the ground and landscape in the way you suggest. There are some considerations you will have to follow though, but it should be possible. Sand is probably best done with a particle system, but dirt should be possible to do. Just make sure you only turn on less than 2500 tets at any given time and everything should be OK.
