I'm cooking up some overlays for grasses, rocks, roads etc I can't use blend textures as my laptop can't handle extreme displacements very well, the slightest editing of the current ones crashes hammer instantly.
I'm tryna make it a mix of desert, tibetan platau and pakistan/afganistan highland so there will be a few more plants. I had an idea for an eagle circling earlier on but I need to learn to animate things. I also plan on adding cockroaches, ants and butterflies using several rotating planes (like far cry 2)
