WHAT IS THIS?
This archive contains various World Machine data files used in the creation of some (but not all) Tribes: Vengeance maps.  These are not supported in any way.  They're offered simply as examples of what you can do using World Machine.  These are intended for advanced mapmakers only.


WORLD MACHINE DETAILS
They were created using the registered version of World Machine 0.99.  They use features that don't exist in the current free demo version of World Machine.  You can purchase World Machine for $25 and get more information about it at http://www.world-machine.com/


HOW WORLD MACHINE WAS USED
World Machine was used to create many of the heightfields, alpha layers, and macro textures in Tribes: Vengeance.  Basic users can open a "machine," press the randomize button, and create new maps in the style of existing maps.  Advanced users can reference these files to learn and copy special techniques including the very useful ability to procedurally texture and decorate your heightfields based on slope, elevation and arbitrary masks (such as roads and rivers).


LEARNING
World Machine is challenging to learn but extremely powerful.  The best way to learn is to play with it like it's a toy.  There are also some tutorials on the web.


LIMITATIONS
Most of the machines included in this archive will not work without some tweaking.  They may reference files and directories that are not included.  Most of the machines also contain partially implemented user-defined Macros whose parameters, inputs and outputs don't always work.  In summary, these machines are provided as-is and are not polished.
