Hey, after a few months I've come back to COH and I was extremley hopeful that with a new expansion and patch (2.5+) that all my map editor problems would be fixed - not the case. The problem is that whilst using the height editor tool, specifically raising/lowering terrain, I cannot visibly see the terrain itself raising/lowering and as such my perspective of what I am creating is completley distorted (using lines to judge terrain formation isn't very appealing). I really want to know what the problem is, i've never been able to produce a map since the HE puts me off straight away. This is a real shame as I'm quite a keen mapper on all the RTS's I own. Here is a SS of what I see while trying to raise the terrain, I hope it dissolves any confusion, all help is appreciated! Thanks! GF
i guess it just does this to lighten the program for your pc. i know it sucks but ive kinda learned to work with it, my first map had no elevation at all, the 2nd was filled with it. you just have to use it for some simple stuff then make it more difficult and youll learn to work with it. i still struggle sometimes.
