Re: TerrainEditor Utility

I was not able to wait until the night....great tool!

I guess the time was roughly similar as lxnormalfix 128 terrain processing. Means it was aproximately 4 times faster than the old util (256 seg theater).

Re: TerrainEditor Utility

I have maybe a silly question - whether the procedure "fix the normals" have to work on the entire map and not, for example, the rows of 256 segments in a row? Then the memory requirements would be 256 times smaller (perhaps?) The angle of neighboring triangles affects the final normal, i guess. Luk
