Endless way II (single plane)

Hi community!

Here is another attempt of creation of endless lowpoly terrain, using one plane only.
Thanks to @makc3d, who encouraged me with this idea :beers:


Demo: https://jtnbk.csb.app/
Source code: elastic-glitter-jtnbk - CodeSandbox

PS “RECLUSE” is a link to soundcloud.



minor opinion-based suggestions:

  • sky, give it some complementary color maybe? Like very low-saturation orange
  • lines on the ground. I know you’re just using wireframe mode, but if the lines were same thickness as the lines on the path - it would blend in better
  • shadow. Maybe a shadow would help ground the character into the scene better. Perhaps an old-school circular contact shadow if a projected shadow break the style too much.

Yay! Thanks! :beers:

Oh, whilst creation, I tried all the options you listed here :slight_smile:
And maybe because of my mood, phase of the Moon and the weather on Mars, I came up with the decision to keep amount of colors at minimum, pavement lines of the road has to be not the same as lines on the terrain, and I don’t want any shadows from the model (even that old school circular one). I liked that imperfect and minimalistic style of the scene :angel:


BTW Lyde is great, I’ve been listening to him loads over the last few days.

Awesome scene too, I watched for quite a while to see if the runner would get out of sync with the music but nope…
