Inspiration Create realistic 3D terrain with the power of World Machine by Andrew McDonald 2 months ago 5 min read There is something addictive about generating 3D terrain for the first time using a procedural generator. Once you start, it's pretty hard to stop the creativity flowing. To make the addiction harder to stop, World Machine has been flaunting their amazing technology on unsuspecting digital artists for over 10 years.World Machine helps you create realistic 3D terrain. Powerful and flexible, World Machine combines procedural terrain creation, simulations of nature, and interactive editing to produce realistic looking terrain quickly and easily. You can build and export high resolution heightfields, textures, and meshes for your game or rendering software.I wanted to dig a little deeper into some recent entries for Rookie Awards 2020 to see if anyone was using this tool. I was not only pleasantly surprised, but also incredibly impressed with the projects I discovered. Take a look at these incredible projects and go have a play yourself.
