a field of (blowing) particle grass

Hey guys. I haven’t been on here in a while but I wanted to show this field of grass I have created:

Obviously the animation needs some work, like some wave effect or something. Field wind does not work well for this kind of thing, so I ditched that a while ago. I’m thinking I will try a wave effect or maybe tweak my texture.

very nice, you’ve captured the movement very beleivably =D

and a very nice stylised look to boot, if i could throw in a suggestion for the wave like motion grass can get from the wind, could experiment with ‘maxDist’ which will limit a forcefield, you can get some sliding through the grass to make it have some more randomness =)

LohnC, WHY AREN’T YOU WORKING ON ORANGE :<

haha

I tried that already, maxdist made perfect little circles in the grass. I might try it now that I have some random motion too though.
