Mulch available in FPP ??
« on: April 13, 2015, 04:04:43 PM »
Hi,

I saw on a post somewhere that Mulch would be added to the FPP wishlist and implemented in the next update.

That was in 2013, and I don't see Mulch anywhere.  Has it been added but I'm just looking in the wrong place ?

Any directions ?

Thanks.

No, sorry. Although it was planned, Mulch and other similar presets were discarded because require to scatter tons of tiny items.

Now, with the new Edge mode that problem is (partially) solved. We'll take a look to it again.

I've been using some of the stone/gravel presets, with a modified material for mulch...might work for you, for the moment.
Still, it is a good idea IMO as a preset :)

Please do take another look at this because I really think Mulch would be an excellent set of presets :)

Hi,
I hope you don't mind me asking a couple of questions. Are there particular types of mulch that you would find useful for your work? At the moment under consideration are wood chip in various colours (natural, gold, brown, red, black),  pine bark, needles, cypress bark, straw, rubber, and shell. What else would you like to see?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

I'm not the OP, but here is an example photo of a real project, after completion...


This is the type we use around here for around 70% of projects.  The other types are similar but one is more red, the other more dark like chocolate.
Sometimes there are big nugget type, but those are not preferred (at least for me :) )

Hi Paul,

Glad to hear that!
Will be a great addition to presets (possibly  ;) )

Old post, but I wanted to revive it. I would love a Mulch preset and I would use it all the time.
