Contest #1: Detail Sprites Poll
« on: February 20, 2016, 03:53:22 PM »
So I've been asked if detail sprites are allowed in contest #1. I'm personally inclined to say no because detail sprites are traditionally tied to displacements (which are already explicitly barred from this first competition. But you can actually place detail sprites manually. However, there are limits to manually placed detail sprites. I'm not going to go more into the technical aspect of them, but I'm going to leave this rule up to a vote. Use the poll above.

Just to give insight to why it would be nice, I would make a few hundered brush planes to compensate but I know for a fact I'm gonna be reaching the brush limit very quickly.
Already half way to the brush limit, I just want some flat planes for some more filled looking grass  :), if I can get it to work..
Up to you guys tho, but that's why anyway, good luck to you all!

I extended the poll until tomorrow. Some tie-breakers need to vote.

OK, the poll closed. Looks like no detail sprites for first contest. Next contest will be more open.
