I will definitely grab this for later tinkering. For some reason I've never been
able to get media to look opaque like this - and this is so simple too! I wonder
what blindingly obvious thing I've been doing wrong...

Thanks for posting!
Bill

Thanks Bill! Just wait one or two days until I have tracked down the 
last bugs.

I believe that I tracked down all the inconsistencies and errors 
remaining. The scene file is also easier to use, either as a single tree 
tester (change the random seed!) or as a parkland development scheme, by 
changing the camera location switch (CamLoc).

The scene file with macro, this time, has been provided in 
p.b.scene-files folder under the identical subject line as the present 
message.

Enjoy!

That looks *really* nice. Good job! I haven't yet peeked at the revised code,
but will.

I like the grainy 'grass' texture too. I reminds me very much of a kind of
coated-paper material I bought when I was a kid, for making model-train
landscapes. It had a rough surface texture-- not just printed on-- that was made
of various green shades of some kind of ground-up material glued to it, maybe
cork(?) As I remember it, the visual effect looked almost exactly like your
render. I loved playing with that stuff; it added a very realistic look to my
train layouts and other models.

You will like it, I am sure. :-)

Yes, I know what you refer to indeed. I remember that paper too: iirc, 
it was some tough paper which you could wrinkle with your hands and it 
could simulate mountains and meadows. Aaah...! modelling landscapes 
before POV-Ray! ;-)

This would make a great combination with (and tribute to) Friedrich Lohmueller's
trains and tracks, along with many other objects that people have modeled over
the years.

What an excellent idea! Going to seriously think about this. Let you 
know. Got a few ideas maybe, that would rekindle a couple of scenes that 
got on hold somehow.

The project could not be complete without the original macro of Gilles 
Tran. So, with a few minor changes, I added the original macro, with the 
possibility to switch between the two and, why not? mix both into the 
same scene.

Latest version to be found in p.b.scene-files.

Hi Thomas,

I haven't looked at the code but the result is very interesting. From a distance
it produces a very nice forest.
