Perfect Golf gets 3D rough! 

Does look impressive  ... but we've been down this road before


... also lets have those bunkers in TGC  !

There's a 9 hole course (Woodhaven, by NoPutt) made with 3D rough that's already available for download and testing.  NoPutt is being careful to emphasize that this is just a test course and is not really  ready for competitive play.  I'm about to download it now and give it a try.  There are apparently all sorts of detail settings in this DirectX 11 Grass Shader tool that are already reportedly getting a wide array of performance and quality reports.  I think the designer of the course has to set them though, and if he's got a bang-up PC, he might use detail settings that will choke an average gaming PC like mine.

I'll give it a go and report back.

I wonder if it will get used in a new TGC

Good question... I don't know the answer though.  I don't understand how the licensing for Unity tools like the DirectX 11 Grass Shader work.  You can buy it on the Unity site for $20, but would that give you the right to use it in a commercial game for your own profit, without any royalties going to the tool's creator?  It looks like users can create courses using it in the game, but they aren't selling the courses for a profit.  I don't know how things would change if a developer, like Perfect Parallel (or more accurately nowdays, Trackman) included the tool in the game.  I'd imagine it would be more than a $20 charge, but I'm out of my box with royalty and copyright discussions.

They get around it since the course creator is not part of PG - it is simply Unity with that Terrain Forge Add On.

For TGC it’s a very different situation as they have made their own course creator, so such a tool would be integrated in the game and therefore sold based on some sort of licensing model - I would assume. So extra dev work for HB and probably pretty tricky to find the right fidelity to not kill performance. Plus - might not work on PS4...

From what I've reading so far on the PP forums it looks like my mid spec laptop will not be able to run the courses with "3D" grasses at an acceptable frame rate.

As it is now, I'm only able to get about 20 fps on the "2D" grass courses.  :(

The 3D grass hasn't impacted my system all that much... maybe 5%, but it doesn't seem to be working right on my computer either.  My 3D rough doesn't look nearly as good as what they're showing in those screen shots.  I haven't tried the latest one today, but what I've seen so far I wouldn't want to play the game with the 3D grass on, at least not on my system.

Having heard about the 3d grass  I thought I would return to PG and give it a try, no chance on my GR8 ROG PC. everything stuttered then crashed, but to be fair it did look good while it lasted. Anyway thought I would try a standard course to see how that played, it was ok but my swing was very jerky, think I must have got use to that before I got the Xbox One X and TGC19. I am not investing anymore money in PC parts just to play games for a year and then have to upgrade again, I will stick to consoles for gaming and the PC for surfing the web and talking on these forums. If I win the lottery I may think again LOL. Just hope if PG2 ever gets released it will be on console..

yes £18 pounds on steam, I have had the game since release really enjoyed it at the time, until they banned controller play, never deleted it so I downloaded the 3d grass courses from PGLS to try them out, Its not worth buying a new PC so you can play them, that's it for me now I won't be returning to PG until they release PG2 if ever...….

So you can’t play with a controller that sucks that can keep it then.

yes you can play the game with controller but you can't play on the main tours run by PGLS, so if you want to play solo or a matchup inside the game that's OK.

Not sure if it was my xbox controller or ps4 controller used to say at end of round,its a illegal device but playing on my cheap laptop short putts were impossible for me and no left handed golfer felt strange also,but overall some fantastic courses on there,thought merion was good on tgc brand,so impressed by it on PG.Its the pot bunkers i love in that game DoGZ done a great job on RSG and muirfield.The Old course great as well.
