:help: i need to put moss and lichen on a headstone.
i have two ideas.
1) just to texture it on although it will look flat
2) use fiberfx

any ideas this is one of my headstones without any moss or lichen

HVs, extra geometry with textures on them etc etc.

As an alternative to moss or lichen you could use ivy.

Try: http://graphics.uni-konstanz.de/~luft/ivy_generator/

It's free!

Another option is to simply texture map them in.

Good idea.:agree:

Ivy generator can create large numbers pf polygons and might be totally inappropriate for what you want.
