OFFER! - MetaTools Bryce 2 Portable Win32 (1996)>>>

Whilst collecting up Bryce 4 stuff I found this Bryce 2 Portable...

From 1996 while still 'MetaTools'...System Requirements will be hard to meet-



That from the site here-

Work fine on XP SP3 portable so no worries about install EXE is pre-patched...

I have added to library as many materials as can be found they are easy to spot as extension is different from any later versions as Bryce 1&2 Different code from later on versions...

There are extra Picture Objects some extra Gels & some unusual terrain alphas for weirdness beyond...



There is no animation in Bryce2 so the lower right button is 'display mode' button which quite neatly toggles between view modes & in wireshadow over render you can move scene in opposition to render to tweak a better position for NEXT render...



I have included some scenes from Bryce 2 Accessory disc as well-




Pass is CGpervert

  • Just to add...Nowadays with much more powerful machines (even old ones) you can squeeze MORE out of this old Bryce...

    You can make distance, altitude & mask maps right in Bryce to take into photoshop or similar for a variety of porpoises...



    Looks like the mask map was inverted evidently you must pick what you want masked out in Bryce2 in later versions opposite that...

    Also to tame sun shadows of harsh crap or simulate radiosity you can make light arrays...First make one by duplicating lights however many then taking intensity of each down to 4-6, then select the lights & 'Group' then duplicate this array 3 times (or however many) & position to surround points of interest...Here is what I am talking & is the above scene-


    In such a case you wanna turn off sun but in Bryce 2 there is no function so you just change sun to BLACK color...

    Ingenious use of terrains also as they can be used for castle walls with REAL displacement or much other the terrain editor quite powerful...
