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"

How to add layers on a Landscape Material with existing blending techniques?

Okay, so I'm setting up a landscape material, and I'm using a blending technique that can be found from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kh8F3uUdiRA

Essentially what is set up in the material editor is the textures in material functions and slope values being added so that at certain angles, certain textures show up, so it goes from flat (grass) to slanted (dirt) to high angle (rock) and then there's a specific blending technique that's used that I'm not sure how to explain very well.

Anyway, my question is: Is it possible to add layers (so I can paint a path in the landscape editor) in the material editor along with the blending "base layer". So what I'm looking to do is to make that "grass, dirt, rock" blended layer the base then have other textures in different layers so that I can paint onto the landscape. Am I able to do that in the material editor? And if not, how would you recommend working around this problem so that I can add a path that forms and blends to the landscape like it would if I painted it on?

I second this question :) I am also in need of paint layers atop of my auto layers. Is someone able to help a couple a fella's?

RATSGAME has a video demonstrating how he does it with this landscape technique. However, for advanced landscapes that use all material attributes, it proves tricky to get both methods to work together.
