|Session Name:||Terrain in Battlefield 3: A Modern, Complete and Scalable System|
|Company Name(s):||EA DICE|
|Track / Format:||Programming|
In the session, we'll take a complete look at the terrain system in Frostbite 2 as it was applied in Battlefield 3. The session is partitioned into three parts. We begin with the scalability aspects and discuss how consistent use of hierarchies allowed us to combine high resolutions with high view distances. We then turn towards workflow aspects and describe how we achieved full in-game realtime editing. A fair amount of time is spent describing how issues were addressed.
