|Default configuration of the Rolling Hills sim-surround landscape|
In its default configuration, you will see green pastures and pine trees. The HUD allows you to switch to other configurations, trees and textures, including winter scenes, flowery meadows and even some desert-like scenes.
|With exposed, weathered rock faces|
|Desert with or without water in the middle|
|Rugged, coastal landscape with an extra-terrestrial feel|
I've used materials on this surround to add the suggestion of valleys on te hillsides and to prevent conflicts of the tree textures with on-sim transparent textures. With the Advanced Lighting Model switched on you will see the undulations, especially when the sun is at a low angle above the horizon. This makes the landscape more interesting. Read this blog post for more information about how to see the materials.
In a few weeks time I will also release small, medium and large versions for sky builds (with animated reflective water), and I am also preparing a half sim surround version for use on connected regions.
The Rolling Hills can temporarily be seen here, surrounding the on-sim mesh landscape belonging to the Grand Canyon setup. They are available here at Landscapes Unlimited and here on the Marketplace. Of course, yo can pick up a free demo there too.
