Hello sir we meet again :)

Ok well the only files you will need to export from l3dt is the height map,attribute map , and texture map.

I would suggest you run though sgt. Aces tutorial first to get an idea for the rest of the files you will need.

You need to either create ground textures and rvmats for them or grab them from the ca drive.

Then you can create a layers.cfg (which is needed to import your sat and mask) so you don't get that all white terrain and have visitor crash on you.

When you export your attribute map from l3dt it generates a nice text file with the rgb numbers for the different type of terrain on your island(I.e. sand,rock,grass,) which you can use those numbers in your layer config.

But run through sgt aces terrain tutorial first because this way you'll see how each one of those components is used.

Edit- actually you can start with this


He walks you through everything you will need to know about terrain creation. It's long but well worth the read to understand everything that's involved.

When you unpack mike Bart's foliage pbo whatever the main folder is drop that into the p drive. I think he has one main folder with the 3 sub folders correct? So just drop the main folder into the p drive.
