Cambrian Ridge HD

Post by Duck Hook »

Well, finally completed all 36 holes ( 3 full length 9's and a par 3 short course ).
Be interesting to see how well the APCD performs when seam-blending and planting commences or whether I'll have to chop parts of the plot depending on which 18 hole combination is being worked on. Ideally I would like to keep the plot complete for the 'immersive' factor and leave it unlocked so if any one desires they can open the course in the APCD and create whatever 18 hole custom layout they wish for....

That’s a great looking layout, Todd. I hope the APCD and Links cooperates with you. Can’t wait to see how it works out.

Hey mate, yeah I hope so too.
I'm just a bit frustrated at the moment from the lack of pictures of a good number of holes on the loblolly and par 3 9's looking from the teeing area.
They are quite bumpy and undulating holes so it looks like I will be using a bit of "artistic licence" on some holes as far as all the fairway humps, bumps go. Plenty of shots of the green areas.

Are you going to release versions so we can play Nine A with Nine B, Nine A with Nine C, and Nine B with Nine C? :dunno: I don't think nine a, b, or c will need to be combined with nine par 3. Thanks!

That's the plan Pete. 4 courses in all - a/b, b/c, c/a plus the par 3 course own it's own.
Although I may combine the par 3 course with the loblolly 9 so people would only have to download 2 courses instead of 3 to get all 36 holes.

One of my favorite holes at CR, the 4th on the Loblolly 9. Sadly, it is also another hole that no longer exists in this form.
I don't know whether Links will allow me to get away with such severe slopes, so hang onto your hats boys!

Hey Guys

I have a seam blending issue I would like some opinions on. All the greens I have done in the APCD have always been surrounded by only one texture, ie fairway or rough, making seam blending hassle free. However, at Cambrian Ridge several greens are met by sliver of fairway with the rest surrounded by rough. The picture will illustrate my dilemma. I would like to keep this look if i can and would like to know what methods other designers have used when confronted with this issue. Obviously the easiest solution would be to end the fairway short of the green and have a green entirely surrounded by rough or continue the fairway so it completely surrounds green but I really would not like to have to do it that way if possible. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers
T

This is the way I do this - which I think came from Danny or Sage?

I hope it is what you were asking.
