DOF : A small variation on Caronte’s technique.

Nice ball, great looking grass.

The ball texture seems a bit “pinched” towards the middle on the centered hexagon and the one left of it. Don’t know much 'bout footballs though, maybe it should be like that.

I see three crowns in the insignia, is this some royal swedish ball or something :slight_smile: ?

no, it’s a Belgian ball, from Germinal Beerschot (you’ll probably not know this team, unless you’re a real football freak).

I thought it would add a little to the ‘realism’ of the model, but I might be wrong.

cool! would iut be possible to soften them soccer hexagon plate things? they look too hard around the edges, like solid plates, i think it would look awesome with softer beveled edges =) its a very awesome scene, i love the grass, it looked too cross hatched at first glance, but ive grown to like it :wink:

grass = mesh dupliverts? or script?

heh, very strange this pic is here again. It was one of my first posts on this forum, and was for months down at the list :slight_smile:

I made the grass with ripstings grassscript. I first made a 5*5 grid with lots of grass, changed the drawmode to bounding-box, and duplicated it around 25 times.

Imgranpaboy : I’ll try to find the file on my HD, and when I have some spare time, I might work a little more on it.
