Software used:

The grass was distributed in the field using MultiScatter and a few layers. The first layer contained green and dry yellow grass with varying heights and density. For the green grass I used four MultiScatter objects with various different settings; for the yellow grass I used three. Their settings were basically picked through experimentation and comparing the results (Fig.24 - 25).

The second layer has some higher grass, with different angles and various densities. There are also thick stalks of other types of vegetation. I merged them into groups and scattered them by hand. All the copies were instanced. Of course, the manual method is preferable as this way you always have grass where it is necessary and important for the artwork. Fig.26 shows some of the plants in my second layer.

The third and final layer consists of different types of vegetation such as wormwood, sow-thistle field etc. I experimented with different density options until I'd found a nice result. Here are some of the results of my experiments with the grass (Fig.27).

Ploughed Land

Before starting work on the ploughed land, it was necessary to study various reference images of the different materials so I could break them down into components/layers (Fig.28).

You would be great Farming-Simulator mods creator. And this tractor is awesome! Maybe you can sell tractors model? I think it would be the best soviet union times mod. :)
