What's the best way to create sand dunes?

I need to create some sand dunes to act as a perimeter wall around certain parts of my map. What's the best method to create them so they look realistic?

Patch meshes I think.



My signature made by IG-64! Thanks a lot man!

The *only* thing that ALL the religions get right is that ALL the other religions are wrong, excluding this fact.

depends on how much time you have. You could try easygen (google search) but when i tried it, it did not work for me. Patches will work, but if it is too steep the texture gets distorted. I find that a mixture of patches and brushes work well. If it is a very large area that you are thring to make then dont use one patch because it is a b*gger to edit. Use 3x3 or 5x5 then merge them at the end with bobtools extentions, if indeed you merge them at all, it is not nessessary.

Take EasyGen, I take it too, it's easy to make, looks a bit strange, but it's not bad
www.darth-arth.de - here you can download it and you'll found a tutorial (In german)

Trisoup it, vertex edit it, then apply a shader to it with q3map_nonplanar and q3map_shadeangle in it. For blending, check SplashDamage for alphaMod blending tutorials.

yep,
nothing over alpha_mod blending

But do you need it for a dune?

Possibly, to accent some places with a darker texture.
