Lonely Places Is a set of thirty landscape materials which will instantly transform your hills, mountains, and meadows into realistic looking terrain. This set of materials for Vue D Esprit 6 is a “must have” addition to your Vue texture library. It fills the need for more distant landscape textures ready made for Vue users who do not want to spend time making their own in Vue's powerful, but sometimes complicated material editor. All of the materials in this pack will create that realistic look without the long render times that adding ecosystems and high definition texture maps to background terrains often do. They come in a range of environments from wintry mountains, moorlands, lush pastures and fields, to desert and barren landscapes, thus insuring that there is something here to suit all of your landscape rendering needs!
Ideal as a backdrop for your imported characters, and set to be altitude and slope influenced so snow, rock, and grass all appear at the appropriate altitude and gradient, setting up a scene couldn’t be easier and can now be done in just a few clicks! These materials look great from the ground as well as from the air, and make wonderful landscapes when “Vued” from dragon back, or from your own two feet!
Uisng these materials could not be easier, just create a terrain object and then apply the material. you can scale the materials to make them look further away too~!
Many ofthe materials in this pack will also look good in the foreground , especially if used as a base for an ecosystem. Some also make great rock textures…. so play around with the materials and see what you can do with them….
