Auto Fire: The Great Outdoors

More progress is being made on the terrain front.   Lately I’ve been battling Unity’s terrain and placing detail objects.  Their system wasn’t particularly well-documented but I’m finally wrasslin’ it into shape.

So the tile system that I use for indoors is still under there, influencing the heightmapped terrain…  The tile type defines what terrain layer(s) I use, which then I apply with some smoothing and variation.  The smaller details like grass and little rocks use Unity’s detail system, which is applied with a density indicated by the tile type as well.  Finally, the larger objects like trees and large rocks are actually the tiles I use for cities, but without a floor component.  These I can spawn and despawn as they come into view, as well as modify due to explosions and so on.
