    Hi all, looking for some help here.

    I made a private (for my own use) conversion of a track I bought with another racing title. Obviously that track has no 3d grass, which looks a bit poor.

    Is 3d grass in AC a function of advanced shader maps, so worth to just experiment with the settings I could for example learn from the new Silverstone? Or is it handplaced?

    Thanks for any advice,

    Helmut

    Grass is a transparent texture on polygons, so not just a shader. Hand placed, or rather via randomised functions of the 3D modelling tools.

    Thanks. I was hoping the technology is at a point where the material "grass" just gets that added by itself... need to look into how to best add it then.
