Mirage

by Sinestesia in Models

Mirage is a full suite for landscape and nature work in Blender. It currently supports terrain generation and tree distribution. This is an artist-oriented addon, built around a user-friendly GUI so you can focus on building your scene. All settings are simple to understand and fully documented. 
Mirage requires Blender 2.75 or higher.

Features

Terrain magic

Creating terrains just got a lot easier. Working with the terrain panel is easy to understand, and easy to get good results. Try a terrain with different levels of detail to quickly check the major forms, or use them to bake low poly versions for games. Mirage will automatically create weight and color vertex groups for
Height, Slope and more. Use these to distribute trees, create materials and more. You can always (re)generate the vertex groups after editing or sculpting a terrain. 

 

Heightmaps made easy


Export heightmaps from any terrain-like mesh or generate terrain objects from a heightmap image in one click. They will use the displace modifier so you can easily tweak them. Mirage will also UV Unwrap the terrain, and calculate Height and Slope Vertex Groups for you. Also supports STRM and Gridded Ascii files. 

Procedural Terrains can also export heightmaps as images inside Blender. Exported heightmaps can also be split in multiple smaller images.

 

Fill the land

The new object distribution system makes it super easy to fill a terrain with trees, rocks, grass or any object (mesh) you want. You can now have multiple layers of objects, each with it's own settings. Each layer can cover a different area, use a specific mesh group as well as having their own scale
and density options. Try the different layer types to enable even more specific settings. Each layer can also be optimized for a specific camera, so you don't have to waste particles on objects that won't be seen.


Rock on

Mirage can generate both high poly and low poly rock meshes in just one click. Rocks have a large number of settings to play with, and they can be automatically added to a distribution layer. You can also generate multiple rocks in one go, as well as bake them to a lower poly version.

 

Changelog

The current version is 3.0. Changes include:

  • Layer-based object distribution system
  • Rock mesh generation
  • Split heightmaps into multiple images
  • Generate terrain straight to heightmap
  • Support for STRM and Gridded ASCII files
  • Presets can be imported from zip files
  • and a lot more! Check the full changelog.

    An amazing addon that makes it really easy to make lots of landscapes and rocks that look good. The creator responds to messages very quickly and works to fix problems that you find. Anyone who wants makes landscapes or rocks should buy this. I have been able to make landscapes for scenes and games a hundred times faster than I could by hand.

    Great addon able to create amazing terrains.
    Still lacks some practical features such as "draw" the desired shape of the terrain and manage huge tiled terrains (for game engines).
    Export heightmaps are still a bit buggy and gives weird results if imported in UE4, but it seems that these are fixes and improvements destined for future releases.
    Is missing the ability to apply erosion to already made terrains (mesh), and to create more complex environments.
    But are all planned features, so with such improvements would deserve definitely five stars!
