Garden Designs

Post by RenderMB15 »

Hi, I'm a landscape garden designer and wanted to share some of the images I've created with raylectron and sketchup. I'd love to see other peoples garden renderings if anyone else is in this field of work.

:o @RenderMB15 this is very impressive design and thank you for sharing. :)

I'm not a landscape designer, but I would like to suggest something. For your lawn (grass), you could use the Raylectron Assets, load the grass asset, right click on your lawn to set where to place grass and set the number of instances to fill your lawn with grass. It defaults to 100, so adjust to the desired amount. This will make it even more realistic.

You could also turn on Textured Ground and load a grass like texture in the material editor (Default Ground Material).

Also, set some shine (5 to 10) for your tiles, wood etc.

Beside that, you've done an excellent job :salute

Thank you for the kind words. I have taken onboard about the reflections to make them more realistic and will try on my next project.

As these models are 1:1 scale they are huge files and I'm already pushing the limits of my computers RAM. The hope is to run VR for the clients so they can be in the model and see all the different angles.

I have a question about the grass and fur texture, when i first got the program you could chose how many blades of grass you wanted up to 3000 but now it seems limited to 645 which doesn't look as good. Is there a way around that?

There is no limitation unless you run out of memory then it stops making more blades. You should use the Assets instead, select "Tall Grass" and right click on your grass texture in the model so that it can place the asset on it, select as many as you need to fill the texture, it default to 100, you may need 1,000 or more.
