Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Why does my heightmap import badly?

First off, I am a total newbie to UE4 and game design in general, so I'm probably being insanely stupid. But I've tried looking at all of the tutorials, all of the documentation, and I just cannot figure this out. Here's my problem:

I have used a program called terrain.party to grab a section of real life heightmap data from earth. The section is 60km in total. That is big I hear, but I also hear that it can be done. When I import my heightmap, having tried to follow more than a few recommended ways of doing so, it turns out like this: alt text

It varies as well. Whenever I try to import my heightmap, it seems to condense it into a smaller piece, almost as if UE4 can't hold that big of an area. It seems to shrink my heightmap. I know I'm messing up SOMEWHERE, but I haven't really seen any awesome and comprehensive instructions, so if someone could please tell me how to properly import a heightmap into UE4 with all of the correct input information that I need to plug into everything, or show me where I can find this information out, I would be grateful.

Thank you!

I think it is a resolution error: Your heightmap needs to have a 65399544*65399544 resolution for beeing at a size of 1:1 and it is impossible In the photo you just need to go in landscape > manage > delete and then delete wrong component

Sorry for my bad english
