@Tristan: I studied computergrafics for 5 years. I'm making 3D art now since about half a year fulltime, but I had some experience before that. Its hard to focus on one thing, it took me half a year to understand most of the vegetation creation pipelines. For speeding up your workflow maybe spend a bit time with the megascans library. Making 3D vegetation starts from going outside for photoscanns to profiling your assets. Start with one thing and master this. @Maxime: The difference between my technique and Z-passing on distant objects is quiet the same. (- the higher vertex count) I would start using this at about 10-15m+. In this inner radius you are using (mostly high) cascaded shadows, the less the shader complexety in this areas, the less the shader instructions. When I started this project, the polycount was a bit to high. Now I found the best balance between a "lowpoly" mesh and the less possible overdraw. The conclusion of this technique is easily using a slightly higher vertex count on the mesh for reducing the quad overdraw and shader complexity. In matters visual quality a "high poly" plant will allways look better than a blade of grass on a plane.

Thank you!

Medieval Fantasy City Generator: Build Your Own Town
25 May, 2017
Check out a nice application by watabou that generates a random medieval city layout of a requested size. A little is known about the method behind this app. The goal of the project is to instantly produce a nice-looking map, not an accurate model of a city. 

Just click one of the buttons and get a new city map of a desired size. Hover the mouse pointer over a building to see the type of the ward it belongs to.

The first version of the app was created for the monthly challenge #17 of the proceduralgeneration subreddit.
