Introduction

Scripts manual wizards ant result1.jpg
Create ANT Landscape
  • This Script Creates Landscapes.
  • There are many variables that can be set.
  • The landscapes can be tiled.
  • Combinations of settings can be used.
  • The script is not limited to landscapes.
  • Tech Walls, Pyramids & more can be achieved.
  • In fact this script has nearly unlimited variables.
  • Experimenting is the key.
  • The mesh is made at a high resolution.
  • Often I use the Poly Reducer script to reduce mesh size.
  • Let's have a look at the Interface.

Interface/Menu Overview 3.1
  • Effect Menu
  • No effect do not add special effect to mesh.
  • There are 25 Special Effects that can be added to your mesh.
  • Of great interest is the Image effect.
  • Load an image to displace the mesh.
  • The other effects are equally wonderful.
  • When you add an Effect.
  • An option appears to use the Effect only.
  • Or the Effect will be mixed with other menu settings.
  • This gives great scope for combination, custom landscapes.
  • Each Effect, has it's own menu & settings.
  • I will only document 1 Effect for practicality purposes.
