Galaxy4D is a Single/Multiplayer space simulator featuring real space physics, spaceship crafting and a full-size galaxy with more than 100 billion star systems, each with hundreds of planets and moons that you can land and walk on. We believe in a virtual world where you are not limited by anything, and that taking shortcuts and fake stuff is NOT an option ! A gameplay needs to be seamless and totally immersive. We believe in WYSIWYP (What you see is what you play). Everything needs to be real. Ohh God do we hate skyboxes !!

Post news Report RSS Galaxy4D - Grass on planets

We are working on Grass and wheat fields for terrains on class M planets. Looks pretty nice so far !

Posted by on

Some planets will have grass and similar vegetation.

Some say that we're trying to create a game that does it all, and that most games like that fail because although there are lots of features, it lacks quality and it's bad at everything.

But let's get one thing straight, if we can't do it as good or better than everything else, it's better not to do it at all, to keep the overall quality.

Turns out this philosophy makes us want to keep improving until it's at least better than the average.

Our grass renderer is capable of displacing the individual blades as an object passes through.

It's also animated with the wind (Video of it in action coming soon)

For the moment it's very hard on framerate but lots of optimisations are in progress.

Here's what it looks like :

This looks lush and lovely, I wish I could run through those fields with my arms by my side, hands brushing up against every virtual blade of grass.
