A semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design.

Nice - have you tried using some of the custom VRAD commands when you compile your map? It may get the effect you're after:

Anyway, I look forward to more!

Detail props would shadow correctly, and render faster to boot...

I think the area is too big for the kind of density I'd want with detail props, like 6000x6000; right now I have two LoD prop_statics for each 512x512 stretch, which I think is a better trade-off than what I'd get with prop_details.

Though maybe I could mix the two prop types, nearer to the house?

I hadn't considered 512x512 props at all, that's a very wise move. To light them properly run VRAD with -staticproplighting, but that would create four or even eight (!) lighting samples for each flower. Not sure what impact that would have.

The best solution is probably to use your own build of VBSP with the detail lump's size limit increased or removed. That does mean contending with their fadeout distance though...one way or another, having millions of buttercups is going to be painful. :-P

Why does everyone refer to me in the plural?

Also: all the green is called "an attempt at visual unity."

Reminds me of Andrew Wyeth ( Filelibrary.myaasite.com ) but less sentimental.

Description

I can't get the shadowing to work correctly on the buttercups (they're all alpha-tested static props with LoDs so the framerate in this scene is still pretty good) but other than that, I like where it's heading.
