I actually wanted it to be a slight bit on the thin side… My wife kept thinking I was growing a wheat field when I thickened it up too much. And I like the ability to see some of the earth near the camera but it gets thicker as it goes back.
You’re right that I used a single blade on a plane, 4 blades on 4 planes. Good idea about adding more grass to each plane tho! Only reason I didn’t is because it started looking too much like there was a pattern to it.
Looks like Basse took it to the next step and put some objects in the scene; I guess if I get time I should do something similar now that I have the grass rendering reasonably.
As for how I did it, I might throw together a mini-mini-tutorial on how to do the grass as I set it up. Would probably be easier to explain with some pictures and stuff. Also, I will most likely post my .blend file so that others can take a look at it.
