i want to live there. have a nice underground bunker with a giant glass shpere around it, half above ground and a quarter underwater, so i and anyone else there with me can get a good view of the big world in the backdrop, the skyline, and the sea of unknown liquid. truely epic dude. i gotta say this is the kinda pictures we should be getting back from nasa, none of that black and white bull. besides the point, this is sooo epically detailed. how long did it take?
Vielen Dank. Die Wolken sind nicht so der Hammer, aber mit dem Rest kann ich ganz gut leben. Der Nebel ist eine Komposition aus verschiedenen Hubble Aufnahmen. Die Natur (in diesem Fall wohl der Kosmos) ist eben immer noch ungeschlagen.
Lol, this is pretty cool. The terrain is excellent actually, was that also created in Vue or imported from another terrain generator? Clouds are OK, a bit soapy-like up close but Vue clouds often give me the same thing, I often have to paint that out but I rarely experiment with spectral clouds anyway since they render impractically slow on my machine, often it's hours faster to just postwork e'm in So I can't really help there, I do think the shadowed side needs to be darker though to match the dark shading on everything else, perhaps higher opacity and less ambient lighting on the cloud settings, but it's not worth waiting again for a re-render.
bwah... another application? No way. Yeah, the clouds. My nemesis is back again. I always had and still have problems with clouds. In the beginning it were clouds on planets, now its clouds in landscapes. Someday (hopefully not too far away) I will wrestle this nemesis down.
The terrain is a composition of several GeoControl 2 terrains, layered in Photoshop and blended together. One can get really surprising results this way. I imported that terrain in Vue and added it as displacement as well. Wow, now here's an idea... popped just in my head... What will happen if I take another terrain as displacement... mhmm... have to try that when I get back home.
Could I interest you in a custom terrain size 4096x4096 and seamless to top it off? Take it as a little thanks for all the comments and tips I get from you.
I've noticed the most natural looking Vue clouds come from having multiple layers with little coverage each (which all adds up to a normal amount of clouds) that way the sharpness, opacity etc of clouds varies a lot more throughout the sky. This is some of the results I got using often more than one layer of spectral clouds in the sky [link] I'd love to take my tests further but I'm over with how long my laptop takes to render spectral clouds, I abuse the standard and volumetric atmospheres a lot unless clouds really are important
Oh a custom terrain would be cool, one think Vue lacks is the ability to create that nice sediment-erosion effect on mountains, stuff like this [link] I think I could even try turning one into a terrain brush, maybe with that one could brush similar features all over a terrain in Vue, if it works I'll send the brush version of the heightmap back to you
You're right, indeed. You know, you can try to use some stock clouds, brush out those ,,wrong''clouds, or use Photoshop clouds combined with some blending modes and see what you get. Just ,,aim high!''.
