  1. I've just demoted my 4/5 year old, i7-3930k PC and built a Ryzen 1700X, Asus Prime X370-Pro, 32GB, dual graphics cards - GTX 1080ti (plus my old GTX980 which I'll replace with another 1080ti when I can). I went with the 1700X rather than the 1800X, because with overclocking it means you can get pretty close to the 1800X and save quite a bit of cash. I've cooled it with the new EKWB Gamer cooling kit (240G). I can confirm that everything works fine in R18 C4D, including TeamRender which accesses 7 x i7 PC's, vrayforc4d and octane. My CinebenchR15 score went from around 860 to just under 1500. I do arch. vis. (for tv and architects/developers), if that's useful to know. That being said I'd also wait for a bit if you can - the new AMD Threadripper chips do seem to offer some great value for money.
  2. Could you not just use a tiled line texture in the alpha channel of a material on your landscape object?
  3. Cheerio Nigel. All the best and many thanks for the site and tutorials. I even came third in a challenge! I may be following your decision soon. I haven't upgraded since R14 (despite having an R16 license) because there's not much reason to move. I use VrayforC4D for rendering arch viz stuff and the things that have been 'added' to versions since R14 have been pretty light for me - cogs, grass, motion tracker (I really don't get that one. Who does animation in C4D without AE/Nuke/Fusion? And all have their own trackers...). BodyPaint and MoGraph are (sorry, were) the killer apps in C4D. MoGraph is still great, but it hasn't had a decent update for years. And BodyPaint... it was so ahead of the game it used to be sold on its own, but now look at it. And don't get me started on TRS v. NetRender! There's still lot's to like about C4D - stability, simplicity, the object manager, tags, 'live' nurbs, text handling... But like many here, I'm just so disappointed that MAXON are letting the important areas languish or rot. It just doesn't feel like a modern DCC app to me anymore. Except where a third party has written something. So, Maya, Max or Modo? (maybe that's all MAXON need to do, change the name to something beginning with 'M'!)
