Hi,

Just a quick question, I am using Gaia 2021 and Polaris. I would like to convert my terrain into low poly using the Polaris Extension.

I cannot seem to find the extension like the tutorial videos as seen here 

 

 

Under GX in Gaia Manager it doesnt show Polaris.

 

Is this still supported or what is the best way to create customisable low poly terrains with Gaia?

 

Thanks,

 

Will

The best way to do this is if you are using Gaia Pro 2021. 
Then you can go to the Gaia manager- Advanced- Terrain Mesh Exporter. 
This will allow you to create low poly terrains. 

However, I do see that you are using Unity 2018 which means that you are using Gaia 1. 
Normally, the Gaia extensions was initially there. However, it could be that you are using a newer version for that tool which might not have the code in it. Its honestly hard to say. That would be the correct thing if Gaia Extensions is not there.

Hi Bryan,

Is it possible to use Gaia to convert to Low Poly while the terrain stay as terrain? After I convert the terrain to low poly mesh, Gena Pro seem to act out weird and unable to spawn and modify the terrain correctly.

Thanks and regards,
Wolf

We do have a low poly biome that you can use to go low poly. 
The terrain mesh exporter would turn it into a mesh.

This is the low poly biome. 
Note that this is textured, but this could work if you are wanting a normal terrain.

Hi Bryan,

But the low poly topology using low poly biome does not look as good as the one that created with "Convert to Low Poly" mesh export.

Low Poly Biome:

Low Poly Converted:LowPolyConverted.thumb.JPG.600903d7ccc3700925d42d62f2e09275.JPG

Is it possible to setup Gaia for low poly workflow? I would like to create terrain with style like the converted one.

Thanks and regards,

Wolf

Is it possible to make the "Convert to Low Poly Mesh" tool to just convert to low poly? I would like the terrain to stay as terrain after conversion.

Currently, no the way to do it is with the biomes. 
When you use the terrain mesh exporter it will turn it into a mesh. 

I can send this to the team, and see if there is anything we can do about this.

Thanks a lot! If Gaia support low poly workflow it would be the perfect!
