November 10, This is part 11 of the tutorial series I am doing on how to create an open world game with unreal engine. In this episode, i'll explain another technique we can use to get rid of tiling in the landscape material. In this method, we will use a noise texture and based on the color value of noise texture,we will give some variation to the texture rendered by the material. Following video explains the main process you have to follow and only the things which require additional explanations are explained in the article.
How can I reduce Landscape Material tiling?
As you can see in the preview, we see no tiling compared to the last episode. And please note that i have made few small changes in the material functions which i showed in the video and here. Those are the points i thought would require further explanations. Post a Comment. November 20, This is the part 15 of the tutorial series I am doing on how to create an open world Game in unreal engine.
In the previous part, we created a landscape grass output which can spawn grass and some other bush type meshes based on the landscape material layer painted. This time, let's implement a method to erase those automatically spawned grass meshes wherever we need. Because, ability to remove grass wherever we need is essential in level design process. Landscape Material with No grass layer. Highlighted area represents the changes i have done compared to last material we had.

Fix Landscape Texture Tiling with This UE4 Macro Variation Technique
November 09, This is part 10 of the tutorial series I am doing on how to create an open world game with unreal engine. In this episode, i'll explain how to get rid of the tiling effect we got with the landscape material we created in the last episode.
In the next episode, i'' explain how to blend noise with the texture to further reduce tiling Those are the points i thought would require further explanations. Join my face.More results. I've been fighting a problem where sculpted landscape has some of it's inner tile seams warping, tearing and streching.
Makes the landscape un-paintable and un-scultable, without ugly marks. It always happens in the same location, no matter how I sculpt it. I can't copy the landscape to a new level, because I run out of memory and the editor crashes. Only thing that has worked so far is completely deleting the landscape and that is not an option. I've tried to fix this for seven hours and I have ten similar maps with same type of shapes. All hand sculpted in the editor, wihtout any problems.
Do you have any ideas? More information about his map. I packaged the project without a. Ten other maps are between Mb each and the problem map is Mb without any special content. For some reason just removing the "corrupt" landscape tiles tiles from the total tiles reduces the map's size by Mb. That's nearly half of the whole map's size.

Nice work. Comment Post Cancel. I'm really excited to try it, but when I've added the materials to my project 4. Somehow it seems that it changes the displacement setup first node to a texture2D which is diferent in your setup image I thinkand since it has no texture assigned it triggers an error.
Any thoughts on why this is happening and how can I fix it? Originally posted by Quintela View Post. Attached Files. I ended up staying up last night working on my variation of the exact one you did but I missed some points and it caused much lag in my test run after 10 hours lol.
I think I had complicated my Tessellation setup and grabbed yours mainly as a way to pinpoint my errors but yours is working so well for what I need and I also uses Megascans so this is perfect.
I actually see the displacement and depth and I can't thank you enough for sharing this. I do have a quick question and bare with me because I am literally crash coursing myself into Unreal, very new to this but slowly getting educated lol.
Overall I see no issues if I add more textures to the palette, I can see the flow to do so fine but I see the empty red box, and I wondering what you mean by it could cause crashes if we add more layers, are you meaning in the box or overall? Not really read up what that red comment box would be for so I am suspecting that is a use case I am overlooking. Final question if you get this, if I want to add more displacements, say one for one on a few more textures, will it cause performance issues to clone your section and attempt to fork a few through maybe some layer blend nodes so I can apply the same slider displacement and tessellation features in my material instance?
Reason is I got a log of textures that would pop out really well if I can utilize that feature on each one but with separate values.More results. If you really want to stretch a texture across your entire landscape divide the uv coordinates by the number of vertices in your height map.

How to effectively avoid repeating texture on landscape?
Im having bad time with my material optimization. It have Base Pass instuction, for surface and for volumetric lightmap. Also im working with forward rendering and all my texture samples setted to wrap So landscape have 5 layer that i blended and 1 more "NotUse" like you see.
I have 1 simple function that give me value for unreal units for texture tiling. And 5 instanced of the same function that you can see on 4 screenshot. Im lerping those with same textures but with different UV that divided on in default.
What im trying to achive is get rid of doubled texture samples, for that im trying to move those 3 lerps node in 1 before texture, so lerp UV and after that connect on texture for every channel. In 5 screenshot you can see my goal function but ofcourse its not working quite well. Looks like its tiling nonuniformaly every face of landscape, its just a mess.
For now i tested worldAlign with textureSize lerp, but i need additional 3 texture samples for that and its looke more like zooming and not a smooth lerp. PixelDepth for distance calculation and what i was really hoping lerp Custom UV0 chanel.
Nothing worked out. Can anybody give me some advice about this? Thanks for reading. Tags: None. I don't think you're using landscape properly, if you're setting it all up as a blended material.
Set up your layers there, then set up the layers properly in the material.Here is how Unreal Engine 4. This means you can now edit and modify your landscapes non-destructively.
Landscape Layers have two components to them. Each landscape layer can contain information for the heightmap sculpt and painted textures. Make sure you gone through Sculpting using Landscape Layers tutorial. It will give you the foundation to work from with non-destructive landscape layers:. In this tutorial you'll learn how to use the non-destructive landscape layers for painting textures.
You must have a landscape material to use that contains Layer Blend node to paint texture layers:. Procedural Auto-Landscape Material doesn't apply non-destructive landscape layers because auto-landscape material doesn't require a Layer Blend node.
The landscape will turn black or you'll see a reflective effect which is normal. It means that you haven't assigned Layer Info's to the landscape:.
You must create or assign a layer info before you can paint this layer. In order to paint textures on a landscape you have to create Layer Info for each Target Texture you created in the material. To explain the differences is outside the scope of this particular tutorial but I do explain what each of these do and which one to choose in "UE4 Fundamentals Vol. But it does matter which Landscape Layer you have selected when you begin painting that layer texture.
After creating your first Layer Info you should see the base texture applied to the entire landscape like so:. You can paint all your textures on a single Landscape Layer or you can have a texture be painted on a different, separate Landscape Layer.
I explain these in-detail in the landscape essentials course. When painting textures while using Non-Destructive Landscape Layers it's very important that you keep track what Landscape Layer you are painting that texture on.
You can toggle visibility of each Landscape Layer by clicking on the Eye icon, this will show you what information you have on that layer:. You can create new Landscape Layers just for painting and name them so you can recognize what they are:. You can use the Visualizer to see which layer contains a specific texture. Alpha is the intensity of any given Landscape Layer. Alpha value for each layer is kept separate for Sculpt or Paint modes.
This way you can adjust intensity of the Sculpt Layers and intensity of the Paint Layers independently. This could get confusing without some practice so here are some beginner guidelines to follow to make it easier to start with:. You can remove specific texture from a Landscape Layer. So if you have Grass, Dirt and Rock painted on the same layer, you can just Clear one of them and keep the others or you can Clear them All.
Choosing All will remove everything from that layer. Although to make this work you must have the Landscape Layer selected where that texture is being applied to. Be careful doing this because will remove all sculpted and painted information from your landscape. Under the Paint menu, Target Layers there is an option to enable Subtractive Blend for each texture:.More results.
I am having an issue where the edge of my water tiles is showing the edge when setup next to one another. Is there something I am missing to get these edges to disappear? I am rather new to working in unreal.
Is there any performance difference between making one large water plane and tiling them? I figured tiling them might be better but I may be wrong. Please let me know! Attachments: Up to 5 attachments including images can be used with a maximum of 5. Answers to this question.
