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 do I texture Terrain?

I am currently trying to texture my terrain but I am having some trouble. I followed this tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsXVP0fykBM&list=WL∈dex=201) but for some reason the Landscape layer blend is interfering with displaying the texture. If anyone knows other ways to texture terrain please tell me or point out what I am doing wrong. Thank you. alt text

I'm not sure, but you should rename your normal layer from "Ground_NM" to "Ground" so that the normal layer have the same name like the base color layer. The layers of a texure family must have the same layer-name.

As you asked there is a other way for the layers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yflvuX3Tfpc&list=PLyfbinWLdAUwiStRx7Zil-O0OLzpIBB9l

In this way there is the LandscapeWeight (without a height map) used (see in the video 0:40-0:45)

Thank you. This kinda worked. I also got the other method to work. For some reason in both ways the texture always is black when I apply it but then I can to paint the main texture on.

Hi adamb5044,

That is normal. the material starts black and then you paint the colors you want on. If a tile you are working on turns black and you cannot see your material, continue working until every tile has received some material information, that will typically fix it. Also keep in mind for the future that currently we only support up to six textures in a landscape material. When you make one you can have as many layers as you want as long as you only have 6 total textures.
