Thanks a lot ! Did you give some masterclass of something ?

How is the Clovers sit on top between tiles? for mine, blend modes doesnt seem to be working... they follow the height of the tiles which results in extreme distortion of clovers following the height changes of tiles

A game Based on Apocalypse Now
25 January, 2017
If you thought 2017 couldn’t start in a stranger way, think again. This is a Kickstarter for a game, which is based on Apocalypse Now. It’s official, it’s backed by Francis Ford Coppola and it sounds crazy. The development team wants $900 to build a project, that sounds like a mix of MGSV, Far Cry and Fallout. Seriously though, it is crazy. But let’s talk specifics.

This is the official description from the Kickstarter page:

Francis Ford Coppola is excited to announce the game adaptation of Apocalypse Now directed by Montgomery Markland, executive produced by Lawrence Liberty and written by Rob Auten.

The game will be an immersive, psychedelic horror RPG from the creators, designers, directors, writers and producers of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher, Neverwinter Nights 2, Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Everquest, DC Universe Online, PlanetSide, PlanetSide 2, Star Wars Galaxies and many more classic games.

This team of game development veterans have come together and obtained the approval of Francis Ford Coppola to bring Apocalypse Now to a new generation as a game.

So this is a horror about a Vietnam War, not a shooter, developed by a team, which includes Francis Ford Coppola (I am not kidding), Rob Auten (the lead writer on Gears of War and Battlefield), Lawrence Liberty (producer, who helped to launch Fallout: New Vegas, DC Universe Online, The Witcher), Montgomery Markland (Wasteland 2) and Josh Sawyer (if you don’t know this guy, look him up. Seriously, shame on you!). There’s no images or videos of the game itself, apart from a couple of frames in the crowd funding video. However, they do promise a trailer in the upcoming days.

The $900k mark does sound very ambitions, but we’re sure that with a brand like that, this Kickstarter campaign has a lot of potential.
