Re: TerrainEditor Utility

Currently the only way I know of is by editing them in Photoshop (or any other similar program) individually. That been said, there is a very clever method by Khronik (in BMS forums) that is being worked on, that automates the procedure. There is nothing public right now but we should come to that. ...

Re: TerrainEditor Utility

Hi Joe, very nice work so far.

Unfortunately, when you import new tiles in the BIN file, the Night tiles generated are black. There is no automatic night tile creation method. Something is worked on right now but the last version of TerrainEditor doesn't produce night tiles.

Re: TerrainEditor Utility

Probably a limitation of FreeImage Library that I'm using to manipulate images. I'd suggest to cut the image in smaller pieces (maybe 4 parts of 4000x4000) and try to do it with these.

I tried with a 3200x2400px photo and it worked as it should. Maybe is a memory issue and there is no memory available to load the imported image. Do you s...

Re: TerrainEditor Utility

Generally, the navigation is not the faster it can be. This gets worse if you display a big area on the screen. The fastest results are when you have a grid of let's say 6x6 and the zoom factor is 1 (all the way to the left). Another thing you can do to speed it up is to enable cache (use tile cache...

Hi demer, IMHO, it's far better to use L0 elevation because of the best resolution you can achieve (250m instead of 1km in L2). That;s the reason I only used L0 elevation in terrain rebuilding. What I'm usually doing is, I extract the L0 elevation as an .elv file with ModTerrain (parameters -x =e #0...

Thanks for letting me know, it seems that something is wrong with this function. I'll look into this and I'll try and fix it. In the meanwhile, you can create your own M and L tiles, name them accordingly and place them together with the H tile. They should be copied in the folder.
