- The foliage system is a powerful tool that allows creators to automatically populate meshes on a paintable terrain.
- While the primary use of the system may be for grass, flowers, and trees - many other meshes are available. Want a terrain littered with crowbars? This system is for you!
- Spawning meshes this way is also much more performant than hand-placing them.
- For some examples of what can be created, check out our Imgur gallery.
- NOTE: There is currently no collision supported on foliage and we will be evaluating that in the future.
- Foliage can be used on any paintable terrain material.
- Simply navigate to the Foliage tab with your terrain selected and the "Add Foliage" button will allow you to add a foliage item to one of the paintable channels.
- The foliage will automatically populate on that painted channel with the given parameters.
- There are many parameters to allow the creator to tweak size, density, position, angles, and offsets, so hop into Core and check them out!
- Multiple meshes can be used in each material channel.
- There is also a modifier brush on the Paint tab that allows you to erase foliage selectively. This is a multiplier, so you can use it at partial Target Value to thin out foliage or 1.0 target value to erase completely.
- If you are having issues seeing foliage appear, it is important to check your spawn distances and cull distances.
