  1. Tutorials & Downloads (Under repair)

    No idea if any of this will be helpful, but here are a couple of approaches that suggest some possible solutions. Most . Most of the tutorials deal with tree and vegetation textures applied to terrain models, etc. Those that include the necessary tools have a click-through non-commercial license. You will need Painter or Paint Shop Pro to complete them, but you can download the free PSP demo and use that if you don't already have it. 2D Trees: http://www.gardenhose.com/tutorials.htm They various versions of the 2D tree tutorials address Painter, PSP and Photopaint, including earlier versions. Rather than post all of the variants, here's the main page. Most of the tutes below are on this page as well. 3D Trees: http://www.gardenhose.com/bigoak.htm The poly count might be too high for games using this approach, but you guys would know better than I. Terrain foliage: http://www.gardenhose.com/coyote.htm Same as above. Works well for oblique and overheads, but poly count may be problematic here too. Grasses: http://www.gardenhose.com/kansas.htm The combat image is really nice. So, I don't know if this demonstration offers much.

Conifer forests: http://www.gardenhose.com/conspik.htm May or may not have value. Here's my disclaimer. Most of these tutorials are old an may not be relevant anymore. You'll know that better than I. Since I make the rendering tools, I'm not exactly a disinterested party. That said, you can make your own. I'm basically an artist, http://www.gardenhose.com/rainforest-4.htm The point being, I hope my post doesn't offend anyone.
