Vivid Landscapes - Volcanic Area

is the fifth mod of my landscape series.

It adds a high quality texture to enhance the hot springs & creeks
with different details like plants, lichen, insect nests etc.
They are no "real" 3D-objects, but realized by detailed normal-mapping & parallax effect.





Both Main-textures are in 2048, their heightmap in in 1024 and 512,
means if you are already running HD-textures, you won't experience any performance impact.
The meshes are modified to improve objects UV-mapping.

ENB i not obligatory, though it amplifiesparallax and enhances it with ambient occlusion.

about PARALLAX

In simple words, parallax is a advancement of normalmapping...
though the depth-information doesn't get simply "drawn" on the surface, it rather warps
the texture itself in the desired direction.
You can imagine the parallax-texture as kind of radar map like the NASA ones from Venus.
The depth effect can get triangulated out of it.
It is not as sophisticated as high end Tessellation and a much older technique, but still nice :)

Images are always welcome:)
