I Need Some Help With Array Modifiers

So I’m making a bit of a surreal scene where each grass blade on a hill is a tube. The hill (made from a sphere) is very uneven and I don’t want to duplicate each piece of grass and arrange it, so is there any way I can use the array modifier in combination with something else to line up a bunch of pieces of grass along a mesh like this?

You might want to try a particle system for this. Here is an intermediate tutorial from Blendercookie (for version 2.49) on the topic.

I am sure there are other appropriate particle tutorials out there. Will get back to you when I find more.

Thank you! That was exactly what I needed! Now I just have to make my computer strong enough to render it. For some reason, blender keeps crashing when I try to render…
