HOw to make Mountains and terrain? i cant understand how to ive go alot better at maping but it just doesnt look good without a good terrain and i cant find something that helps me find out how to make terrain. Plz Help
im not sure how to make custome mountains and stuff but if your using gtkradiant go to plugins then there is a thing called gensurf. go into that and you can make terrain of a certain roughness and different kinds of valleys and junk.
Gensurf is good to do local elevations or in-map stuff. To start-from-scratch, I use EASYGEN: uses a B-W elevation map instead of equations and u place textures as painting over the triangles. (U should delete triangles where constructions are).
Gensurf makes the best mountains. Here Are some I made with tcg_vector in the shader information.
How it looks in GTKradiant.
Go over to Pointy at http://www.planetpointy.com/ and check out his kickass tutorial on EasyGen and also a link to pick up Dragon UnPaACKer(utility to unzip,zip,find..blah blab blah...its great though!!!!)
