I found myself adding a few rocks and bigger stones by hand, so I decided to make automated rocks. I actually made the rocks 3D. It doesn't show in the picture all that well, but each is a 3D object.
The rocks work just the same as the trees, I can define terrain types that have them, their sizes and probability. The AI also knows to go around them. If I want to add a couple of rocks to an area, all I need to do is draw some strokes of terrain with the Rocky terrain type, and randomized rocks pop out of nowhere!blog comments powered by Disqus
