First tests with the grass model:

Image 3

Outdoor test:

Image 1
Image 2
Image 3
Image 4 - looks bad from a distance at this time, especially from a higher location

The FPS dropped to a 30-40 but keep in mind that there is no optimization, the church is made from detail brushes entirely and the grass model doesn't use LOD yet. More than 60000 polygons are drawn at a single frame.

EDIT:
It seems that you can use misc_gamemodel for md3 models only. Since I used .ase, I had to go with the misc_model. This will be fixed later.

Ah, 8600. There's the fps drop. But that's pretty good for W:ET (regarding that map with all the grass on it). I bet 50-60fps is reachable with new vid cards and similar CPU ghz. I would love to see something like obj_urwald, but with more foliage.

That's really romantic, folks - but out of respect to Damien's work, can we please stay on topic? ;)

Well, I'll do my best to make it run as smooth as possible on my PC without reducing the quality.

I didn't do much work on the grass. I should tilt the planes so they don't dissapear when viewed from above, add some variety to the height, make sure it gets affected by distance fog, maybe make it higher res (currently it's 256x256), add more grass blades per texture and make them thicker so mipmapping doesn't screw it up completely. Then there's the LOD models creation and custom texture(s) too...

In the meantime, here are some new screenies (click on them for a bigger image):

Image

Image

The trees are ~400 polys, at this time they don't affect the FPS so I'm not planning to create lower poly versions for LOD. BTW, when I say trees, I mean one tree copy-pasted a few dozen times. :)

Due to their size, they look better from a distance but I need to make them affected by fog as well.

The trees are created with a great tool called Tree[d] and I've also "borrowed" it's textures.
Then they are imported in Blender (if you need to do some retouching) and exported to .ase.

EDIT:

A quick (and dirty) update:

I've modified the transparent shaders, they're a lot cleaner now and affected by fog, finally. The grass isn't mipmapped anymore so it's visible across the map.

There is a performance boost of 10 - 15 FPS' which is a big deal considering it was running @20 FPS in the last one.
Turning of AA (4x) adds another 10FPS but like I said earlier, I won't be relying on crippling the graphics quality.


Image

As you can see, I forgot about the trunk, it still isn't affected by fog. :P

You might argue that the colors look washed out now but that's because of the agressive fog which comes with the used skyshader so here's how it looks without it (something in the middle would work nice):
