Why that's just a voronoi node for the sphere they're on and a sine for the shape of the worms and he right out says it's proximity for the overlap and...

the fun part of this was realizing there isnt a solidify node, so instead of doing what you'd think would be the simply way by deleting faces off a cube to make the cover of the book, i ended up creating an unrolled flat cube, edge sliding the edge loops into the right spots, then doing a vector rotate at the bend points to kind of fold the book shut.

then for the pages, i created a grid the same size as the pre-displaced spine of the book, with the correct number of vertices calculated from the page size input, raycasted that grid onto the fully deformed book spine so it had the same shape, then i instanced a simple grid onto those edges and applied a rotation on the pages to get them to fan out a bit towards the book cover

i love nodes

grid over the objects, geometry proximity with the target being the objects, then subtract the distance from the z position in a set position node. then you can adjust the profile with a float curve or your favorite math functions

i still haven’t figured out the geometry proximity node and how to use it. ive used raycast and transfer attribute and those seem similar though but ive tried geometry proximity a few times and it doesn’t seem to work the way i expect. cant wrap my head around it

i like the take on the concept too.

actually in general this nodevember is pretty cool. 1 prompt every 2 days is waaaay more doable and at first i was stumped by how vague the prompts were but i do like how everyone's doing different stuff with them rather than seeing 35 variations on the same theme

just figured out this little trick for selecting faces on a complex mesh:

Nice! Is it possible to ray-cast on generated instances, e.g from instances-on-points? Its not very original idea but for large I'm trying to do a Minecraft style landscape and wanted to use ray-cast to colour cliffs differently and place trees etc (as in it's normal ground if the cube can 'see' the sun) but it doesn't seem to be working...



edit: oh, a 'realize instances' node has stopped it complaining, but now everything registers as a hit, hmm

i havent tried it but i assume you need to "realize instances" first

toiletbrush

yeah that's it...what exactly does that node do? Everything is registering as a 'hit' too, maybe ray-cast doesn't work quite like I expected

it makes your instances into real geometry, lol.

what that means is. instances are just references to something. they don't count as a real mesh or anything. since theyre just a reference, you can't really "do" anything to them unless you also do it to the parent object theyre referencing.

"realize instances" basically transforms them into an actual object. it's like you made a bunch of things and used "join geometry" on them. they are no longer a reference to anything but objects themselves, so you can do anything to them at this point. downsides are: it uses more memory since everything has to be copied. it's harder to do things "per object" since they no longer hold the concept of being independent objects. theyre now just 1 big mesh, so stuff like rotate vectors will work on the entire group as a whole instead of per thing. texturing can be harder, since the object/whatever coordinates are now not shifted to the instantiation point, but now referenced to global 0,0,0.

you can work around the last 2 points but it's a complex web of transfer attributes

toiletbrush

Hah, cheers, that makes sense.

So with the ray-cast node I was hoping that it would only return a hit if there was no geometry occluding the target geometry from the source's pov but I guess that isn't how it works. I'm gonna have to figure out another way to detect cliffs and open ground!

my effort, a bit unhappy with how glitchy it is though


I've done a bunch of math so that the vector going into the noise node that generates the ground *should* be quantised to the block size, so I can smoothly change the input vector but have the shape of the ground stay constant within a block's worth of movement (if that makes sense?) but it's clearly not working and so you get that 'rippling' effect. Bah.

It's also weird that the set-material node seems to set only part of some of the cubes to grass :confused:
