Post by Vancer2 »

I've been wondering how you make those mountains and cliffs in the map editor. The option is either right there in my face, or I require an external program. Help? Oh and hi :arhello:

Hi,
I understand you want to know how to make the "looks" of hills and mountains? In OW editor you can only make hexagons higher or lower than the original height level, and basic things like if there's normal ground or e.g. mud (which will slower units). To make graphics of mountains and stuff, you need to make a ground texture, an image that will be applied onto the surface of the map.

Here are instructions on how to make such textures using existing OW textures and software like GIMP or Photoshop.

You can always make your own textures, but it's far more easier to use existing ones. Original OW textures were made in a program called Bryce and then modified in Photoshop (as I heard).

If you need to make small color corrections to the whole map after you applied ground texture, you can do it in color.txt file of the mission (it's also accessible through OW editor, but I don't remember the shortcut).
