Grass & Flower Field Bases II

15 Mar

Sometimes you just can’t make the shape you need for your landscaping with just a square or a circle — that’s why we created these triangle & half-round bases. You’ll love creating fields and meadows of flowers and grass with these sculpties, adding so much depth and color to your landscaping designs. Crafted to be as random and natural looking as possible. Please enjoy making your garden grow with Trowix.

Perfect for those hard to fit areas and formal gardens.

Don’t get caught with a flat garden!

Terrain Lumps, Bumps & Hills

16 Dec

Everyone needs some hills to go over to get to Gramma’s house this time of year, but if you live where you can’t terraform like we do it’s hard to have those hills.  Voila’!  Like a bad info-mercial, we come to your rescue with… 

Enough bumps to knock your wheels out of alignment



Surround trees, pile up straw by a fence, make leaf piles – the included shadow maps will add to the realism of your textures. 512 x 512 for faster loading.

A festive country look for just a few prims.



We’ve used our Grass & Flower bases, Autumn Meadow Grass textures, 1 Lots of Dots texture (available free in-store for a limited time) & Vertical String lights for this holiday look at the barn. 

Under 10 prims for over 2000 sq m of landscaped terrain (w/o trees)




Come see the new pretties on display at the Barn. Or stop by the SL Marketplace for your special delivery today!

New Grass Texture – All Natural

4 Sep

With all the excitement about new meshy things, I forgot to post the new grass texture for fields and meadows.  We all love this and have made the “lower 40” out behind the barn so much prettier! …and beside the barn, just putting new grassy places all over. : )

We now have grass, grass for over-grown lawns, for grazing horses, for sweetly romantic fields. With realistic colors from sun-bleached yellows to dark bluegrass green, these 1024×512 alpha textures will help you create the effect you have in mind.

I very highly recommend using these with Trowix ‘Grass & Flower Field Bases since the grass was designed for and on them. : )

Finally!  Just plain grassy grass, lush and pretty!

It comes in a few colors which should do for Summer and Fall.

Definitely mix and match these with multiple prims for realism.

To get these lush, full fields, Vix has some texturing suggestions:

1. Basic texture defaults I started with before adjusting for prim size are:
Repeats Per Face U:16.000 V:256.000
Rotation 0*
Offset U:0.50000 V: 0.48000
** The only number you should need to change is the Horizontal (U) in Repeats Per Face. This will change the width of the grass blades, allowing for fine or coarse blades. 8, 16 & 32 will be the most often used.

2. Feel free to tint the texture lightly to get the effect you want. Over-tinting can dull the contrast needed for realism, though.

3. Experiment with Glow and Full Bright.
I use very little glow .01 or .02, but I do use full bright. I’m not a full bright user normally, but it’s very effective with this texture.

**For a lush, thick look:
– Try to place the grass on a similarly colored terrain or surface.
– Use 2 prims of grass — One darker, one lighter placed at 30-45 degree angle to each other.
– For really large areas, try scattering smaller prims of varying heights throughout the area.

This is 2 mega prims with 2 colors of grass.

You can see these, frolic in these and even buy these at the Trowix Barn & on SL’s Marketplace.

Drop by anytime!  You can forget your shoes!  : )
