Features in development / New terrain composition node: Terrain multiply

New terrain composition node: Terrain multiply

This node multiplies two input terrains. At each vertex, the value of the output terrain is the multiplication of the values of both input terrains. This value, which can be extremely high, is then scaled down.


If both input terrains do not have the same size or resolution, the size and resolution of the output terrain is determined by the size and resolution of the first terrain and the second terrain is enlarged or decreased so that its size corresponds exactly to the size of the output terrain, before being multiplied with the first terrain.

For example, the terrain from a Ridge noise node is multiplied with another Ridge noise (with a different seed) and outputs a terrain shown below.

Features in development / New calculation node: Size information

New calculation node: Size information

The Size information node splits the size of the input node and outputs the size information as the width in number of vertices, the length in number of vertices, the quad size, the width in meters, and the length in meters.

This node has no parameters. The input connector links to either a terrain, mask, color map, or normal map. The output connectors can link to either terrain or mask generators and export node optional connectors, or calculation nodes.

In the example below, the Ridged noise terrain generator takes the width in vertices of the Constant color map. The Ridged noise terrain width is no longer editable.

Instant Terra v1.7 has two new simulation nodes: Sedimental smoothing and Flow simulation.

Sedimental smoothing

The Sedimental smoothing node simulates the effect of sediment deposition due to the general weathering of the terrain. The simulation is unique in the way that the terrain is never carved, so sediment is generated during the simulation (but at realistic locations).


The user controls the strength of the process and the general shape of the area where the sediment is deposited.



Flow simulation

The Flow simulation node simulates the movement of water on a landscape. The simulation does not modify the input data, but generates an output corresponding to the flow map.


Two types of flow maps can be generated: velocity-based and accumulation-based.
Two different algorithms simulate the movement of water and different parameters, such as the quantity of rain or evaporation, and are controlled by the user.

Features in development / New component parameters
« Last post by Leigh Kamraoui on October 04, 2019, 11:43:29 AM »
Instant Terra v1.7 has several new component parameters to let you switch between parameter values, toggle a parameter on or off and see the effects in the Viewport, and translate, scale, and rotate the terrain.

List parameters
You can now create a list of parameter values and apply one of them at a time to a component to view their effects.

You set as many values in the list as you want. For each value, you define a name, a description, and the corresponding output value.


Switch between the different values and see the results in the Viewport. For example, a smooth component with three values sets the strength of the smooth to 1, 10, and 100, respectively:


On/off parameter

You can also create an On/off parameter and apply it to a component to simply toggle a parameter on or off.


For example, if we create a Black or White component, the On/off parameter determines if the white or black values of a mask will be exported.

- If the White parameter is unchecked, the mask value is 0 and the mask is displayed as black.
- If the White parameter is checked, the mask value is 1 and the mask is displayed as white.


Translation and rotation parameters

Five new parameters translate and scale the terrain horizontally and vertically along both the X and the Y axis, and rotate the terrain.
A manipulator appears in the terrain and the parameter are displayed in the component's Parameters window as a slider and a value.



You can add as many manipulators as you want with as many combinations of translation, scale, and rotation parameters, and toggle between them by clicking on the right mouse button.

Hi,

Maybe your problem is similar to https://www.wysilab.com/forum/index.php?topic=191.msg530#msg530.
Can you send us the reports described in this post? This may help us to understand where the problem comes from.
Thanks.

It stops right at the start.

I opened the website it points to, downloaded the listed libraries and installed them.

Still doesn't work.

Hi Monkey,

do you have any specific message? At which step does Instant Terra close?
Watch also this page to check for other potential issues: https://www.wysilab.com/OnLineDocumentation/index.html?page=Overview%2FPrerequisites.html

Hey guys,

i've installed the latest VC Redist 2019 and Instant Terra still wont start saying that MVC2019 is not there.

I've reinstalled all of the Redists and it still doesn't work.

Any help?
