Post by: e2clipse on May 27, 2014, 08:35:51 am

It will take longer then the rest i guess...
The snow device is a vwry tricky machine to handle :shock:

Yes indeed - snow-device is not that simple

How will it be in terms of performance and build time ?
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on May 28, 2014, 04:02:02 am
Well i think there should be options
So you can choose maybe "Layers" the more layers the slower it gets
And as far as i know were al my macros pretty quick to build
Even carved has a nice time...

But the snowmachine and its unexplained depthmasks and inputs
Well im trying to get some nice results...
If i do not, then i will not release :o

A quick sneakpeak of the macro result

Also it took 20 minutes with erosion alltogether to build 4k map
Preview below is a 2k map took about 7 to 8 ...not even that

My system spec are
AMD FX - 9590 octa
Asus sabertooth 990 FX
12 gig ram ddr 3 (i know its a weird nr )
Geforce GTX 950 overclocked edition(not that it matters)

Pfff how does one make use of a snow device  :?
Its tricky bussiness but im well on my way

So after the message above, WM was terminated and i lost the world regarding the snowcover
But im already bussy trying to get an even better one rollibg out of this factory :D

Oke so...anyone wants to test a beta version?(dont go into the macro,its a mess)
And anyone have any ideas for it? Reasonable ideas :P

I already added snowdrifts to the mix (maybe multi angled snowdrifts) so you have more control of the snow
Also snowmachine is covered

Post by: Onkelpoe on May 29, 2014, 09:55:50 am
Yeah!
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on May 29, 2014, 10:04:00 am
Does the yeah! Mean yes i wanna test this thing?
Or does it mean yeah its a beta already,looking good :P
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: Onkelpoe on May 29, 2014, 12:56:41 pm
Both?!  :lol:
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on May 29, 2014, 12:58:55 pm
Alright i will have Beta version done by tonight i guess
Bit testing to do myself,but ill manage

I'll give you by PM or email then i guess 8)

When you say go...ill finish it up and release this thing :P
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on May 30, 2014, 09:47:07 am
Oke so i had a thought about the parameters
And how to have more options

Means i have to alter the motherboard once again
Plus im combining 2 new techniques
And the multi evaporation angles are in working order
With the possibilty to choose different elevations
So you will have 3 maps... flow wear an deposition
All being altered by elevation and angle
The problem with the mask input not resetting to its position before flicking the switches
is taken care of
Blur,select tools,colors and lots of other options

You just have to connect a few more lines to the module and your ready to go!

Now lets build this monstrousity

Ok, so this thing builds without crashes or unexpected behaviours, here. It does not take that long, if you build on 2k res only  :P

Have to take a closer look at it and try to figure out, what all the params are doing... this will take a while, I guess


Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on June 02, 2014, 04:37:26 am
Theres a snow device build in, thats why it takes longer

I actually wanted to build 3 in there
Also flow wear and depo coloring
I made it but WM decided it had to crash without saving

So i could make that again

Or clean  the beta up a bit and release it

Beta is smaller
The other one is moduled  *2macros
And the mainboard is so big i tend to loose track were everything goes
But more options and 3 layers of snow can be added
What to do
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: Onkelpoe on June 02, 2014, 04:44:11 am
I think beta with flow, wear and depo coloring would be awesome :D
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on June 02, 2014, 04:50:40 am
Beta works on flow and depo and a snowdepthmask right now

The other one in my mind has 3 snow masks
But you can switch them on and off

Its just very big but it will build very fast except for the snow modules
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on June 02, 2014, 05:15:18 am
Oke i decided to make it possible to add a second snow depthmask
Meaning 2 snow devices are build in...gives enough options for a nice cover
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: Onkelpoe on June 02, 2014, 05:19:15 am
Good decision, e2clipse! Will test it, as soon as it is for downloading  :)
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (pun intended)
Post by: e2clipse on June 02, 2014, 05:38:43 am
Oke so im going to wait with this untill i get a licensed version of Pro
Sick of the 2gig limit :P needs to work beautifully and i cannot see what the results are
And im not going to rebuild all in 2.2 :P
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version!)
Post by: e2clipse on June 05, 2014, 03:29:43 am
As you all will notice ive changed the titel of this topic

Explaination:

Im going to make
Probably 3 versions of this

1 Basic version wich has been tested and will be ready for use
after i change the parameter naming

2 Pro version wich will have a second build in snow machine and is only for users
who have the hardware to drive it(it will go slow on a simple computer)

3 Elite version wich will stay in my control, with a 3th snow device
And more options and parameters.This will be for dedicated users only
Wich i will notice by time who is and who is not
Also this device will be moduled(exist out of two macros linked together)
More control and better responce,tested on extreem resolutions
Also will have a more developed way of building up the snow
Wich i will also test very intens untill i think its looks alright

This doesnt count for macro devices wich are formed in collaborations

If you think thats unfare...So is coming to the forum,grab what you want and never return :P

Post by: e2clipse on June 05, 2014, 05:56:24 am
I have a little problem with the angle controls
I shall look into this as soon as i got time
Parameters are ready
Also pro version is 1/2 done
Elite version is  3/4 done

thanks e2clipse, can´t wait to test it  :)

Cheers!

Your very welcome! You helped me too
And WFab does too so thats gotta count for something right :)
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version!)
Post by: WFab on June 05, 2014, 12:00:44 pm
Thanks for that e2clipse! You're too kind! :)

Hows that skeleton coming along

Is it working for you?
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version!)
Post by: WFab on June 05, 2014, 12:32:34 pm
A bit, still working on it. Might even get the bumps working! :)
Title: Re: Coming soon: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version!)
Post by: e2clipse on June 05, 2014, 12:58:45 pm
Thats nice to hear :lol:

I also got the Basic version ready to go
It has not got any presets im sorry but
My version is so slow with this macro
It will take an hour to set things right
And i cannot even see it in full ress

So if anything turns out to be not working
Holla at me haha :P

Flow goes to flow
Depo can have either wear or depo input
Basic coverage or any other color info goes in the color input
Heightfield...well if you mess up there u shoukdnt be here :P

Post by: Onkelpoe on June 06, 2014, 07:42:50 am
so... waiting for first test to finsh.. report back, soon-ish :) (i hope, cause it´s stopped at 82% for some minutes now...)
Title: Re: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version) Ready for use!
Post by: e2clipse on June 06, 2014, 08:19:48 am
Its because of the snow device it tends to take longer at that part
Title: Re: e2's Jus know it! (Basic library version) Ready for use!
Post by: Onkelpoe on June 06, 2014, 08:36:13 am
Got ok results with Standard settings. Would love to experiment
With settings, but it will Take a Long Time to test, hehehe

Yes a lot of snow on full ress does take a lot of time
