I've been trying to texture my map Schweinfurt (which is scaled Large, 2048X2048), and I can only seem to texture one quarter at a time in the editor, and in game the texturing I generate doesn't show up at all. How do I texture the map? :confused:

i take it you are using battlecraft? if you artent , download it and use it, it is good for basse textures, you can enhance upon these later with ed 42. basically prtess ctl + a, then click on the booxes of the map you want to set to a default texture. then downclick to choose from the selections. then press ok. then go to tools, and click generate surface maps, this will make them appear. and hey presto you have your surface maps i take it this is what you meant

Unfortunately, no. I have selected those points, but for some reason I can only select a quarter of them. The rest are unselectable. After I generate the surface maps, they don't show up in game. :confused:

Yes, big maps seem to have these texturing problems. All I know is that BC can't handle these big maps well, and I can't think of any solution. Best thing to do would probably be opening the map in Editor42, and proceed texturing in there.

I think only the center 512x512 portion of 1024x1024 terrains is texturable.

Oh joy. :uhm: Now...where can I find a DECENT tutorial (I can't find any of them anywhere, and the creator's website is down) on how to use Editor42? I really want to get working on this map. :(

did it work in Ed42?

i'm not bothered with only being able to texture 1/4 of the map, but that quarter has to be divided into two parts; in two opposing corners :( (and bc didn't handle it)
