easy enough to replace the 2 materials I have in there now with your own ground/rock and some sort of green vegetation instead of the snow. this is very basic, though - I would live to see some real procedural terrain shaders built into Indigo, with easy to use parameters.
Yes, with textures this material gives a more realistic picture :

I hope the new shader from Ono add even more realism.

Looks pretty good! Feels like it needs just a little bit more break up, in the form of some noise in the bump, maybe. But again, having a fully procedural fractal surface instead of a polygon mesh for the mountains would be best. Problem always seems to be, you can never get enough poly's to make the ground look detailed enough.

Hi FakeShamus, it was easy to make your shader parametric with a "slope" factor.

Why not ?

I have slightly abused one of your textures in this shader:

Actually, apologies for the thread and texture highjacking combo.

A very interesting result! But I can not use this shader to Cindigo!? :(

...cause I actually have no idea what I'm doing in ISL, I just copy and paste from better men than me for this stuff :wink:
If someone wants to redo the "snowy rock" and "mossy rock" with parametric controls and replace my versions that would be fine with me!

ok, yeah, it was easy to make the snow cover parametric - lower values = more coverage:

and here's a new "mossy rock" with sliders for direction and amount of coverage:

Very nice shaders, I'm glad you made the move. It would be great to update your mats on the DB.

Alex, I can't tell about the extent of the ISL implementation in Cindigo, I'm not competent in the matter. I jumped on the ball when it came to ISL, sorry about that.
