Here are some screenshots showing the results of using different textures and different Read more…

Hello :), a while ago I decided to learn OpenGL ES 2.0 in Android, so I decided to make a simple terrain, and now I want to share my thoughts about this experience :D.

Edit: after reading this post please take a look at Android Terrain Test 2 : Clouds where the code is better and bugs are fixed (clouds were added too 😛 ).
