That looks really cool Dart!
Thank you, Sir.
It was a lot of fun to make, too!

This one uses various elements from Lisa's Botanicals' "The Heart of the Matter" series, including "The Forest Whispers" and "Remembering How to Fly". Which perhaps explains where the whole idea came from in the first place? smile

This is really cool. Dartanbeck, you're a wizard.

Hey, maybe if you add some snow, rain, blizzard or mud presets from the particle emitter? Just thinkin'...

Thank you.
It truly is a lot of fun to work with smile
It will come with a sample lightning storm in the rain, but the particles and mud will have to wait for an expansion of sorts smile

Amazing. So far, whenever I drop in something with a base terrain, I just drop one of the custom terrain shaders that comes with the kit onto it, and it melds in with the surrounding Woodlands scene. Here is Alcazar del Pantano, a texture kit preset for Castillo del Diablo, an excellent adventure destination. That cliff side that the castle is built into is wearing my "Forest Terrain" custom terrain shader that comes with the kit. I am constantly being surprisingly pleased with how easily scenic props and figures are to work with - which was the idea in the first place - but I wasn't actually expecting the shaders to be so helpful in scenic match-ups. Before I woiuld simply hide the non-matching terrain, as this kit has terrain-a-plenty. But why do that if a simple shader selection from within the scene is so simple? smile

This whole scene took less than a half an hour, including the time of deciding what to add to the scene - in this case - Alcazar del Pantano

Thanks.
Hopefully get it submitted this week to QA. They will test it most rigorously. That's why I already did! smile

Hey Dart, love the dragon and it's baby render. Somehow I missed it when you posted it! Great job!


Hope you feel better soon!

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

Have you thought of posting a YouTube of you using it (i.e. putting one of these scenes, or a couple of scenes together), so that the buyer has a better idea of how they would use it? Sounds like you are putting together scenes pretty quickly and easily with it, and a video of you doing that would definitely be interesting to me! (even without audio)

I have made a couple of videos - one explaining the base set-up that you'll have in all of the presets - super simple - but quite fun! Then another where instead of using a preset, I start with just the blank base, and build a complete scene. I haven't finished editing them yet - but they seem pretty cool to me.
