Hey guys,

I forgot to do this earlier, but if you'd like to download the Height Map and Mask of the example I worked on over the stream, the Shattered Shore, you can find them here;

Streams done! Made the height map "The Shattered Shore" along with it's mask, and loaded it into the Map Maker as an example. Thanks to anyone who stopped by, I hope that you managed to learn something :)

Hey guys so I mentioned a while ago that I'd be holding a stream covering how to make Height Maps in my style, and I'll be holding one tonight @ 7pm. I'll post the link in this journal when it's up, and I hope to see some of you there.

I'll be talking about creating height maps and masks, and then how to put it into the game. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and if I have some time, I'll try to answer what I can. It doesn't have to be just height map questions either, if you want some advice about texturing, meshes, weather etc. that isn't a problem.

I will try to cover how to make different types of terrain, if there's something you really want to learn how to do, leave a comment below and I'll see if I can work it in.

Hopefully this goes well, and if so I might do more in the future.

Cheers

UPDATE

Okay! So a few of you seem interested, so I'll plan to hold a stream on the first weekend of March. :)

Hey Guys,

Recently I've been getting quite a few questions about height maps, and even though I already have a written version of my process making them, I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in me doing a stream about how to make a height map from start to finish? It'd probably be a casual sort of thing where I'd just work on a single height map- and answer some questions/show off some techniques for getting my style.

If there's enough interest I'll see about planning one in the near future and getting a stream set up. If you have anything you'd want to see, or questions for me to answer during the stream, just leave a comment about it and I'll probably do it xD

Hey gen i was wondering what meshes you used for the Light rays and the Nests in your maps.

Hey there,

Those beams of light were made by using the 'glow' Particle that is used on objects like the Fluorite Crystal mesh. To get it, you can open up the Fluorite crystal- then just delete the crystal mesh and you're left with the glow.

I found a neat glow pack on the FH forums, and I used the yellow glow and stretched it out to make a bunch of beams of light.

As for the nests, I found those in a WoW Mesh pack on the FH forums as well. I don't have the links for these unfortunately. (I've been told the WoW meshes have been taken down, but just looking around google might turn something up, or playing with the Particles and meshes yourself)

Hope this helps,
Cheers!

-Gen

Do you do Map Requests? I have a Small map I need done. I cant find any height maps to make it. When I make a Height Map it crashes everytime I type the Terrain in the Map Maker. I thought it would be easier to just have someone make the map for me xD

My apologies, but I do not do requests for Maps. If you're looking for height maps though, I have a bunch of free height maps with masks that you can use.

Thank you for the link, but I need city roads. Might you have any tips on making Height Maps and Terrain Masks? That could help!

I have a set of tutorials that you can find in my gallery if you're looking for some instruction on how to make them. Otherwise I'd suggest looking at other tutorials you can find on youtube and here on DA in the Feral Heart groups, like Feral Heart University, they have pretty much every tutorial imaginable for the game there.

Hi Genesis I'm having trouble in retexturing my objects.
I've done what I was told to but still nothing.
I made a rockTex7 but when I type it in object maker it says it can't be found.
I think I'm doing something wrong.
Please can you maybe guide me through it?
Thanks :)

Hey Angel500,

Sorry for the late reply, I had just gone away on vacation for a week when you sent this comment e0e

I don't know if you've managed to figure it out by now, but if not I'd be happy to help out.

If the editor is telling you it cannot find your texture it's probably because the texture you've made is not in the correct folder. The FH editor needs it to be in this folder;

Feral Heart > Media > Terrains > Textures

There you'll find all the default textures like african grass, black, snow etc.

Another problem could be the /type/ of file you're trying to load. The FH editor needs it to be a flattened image, .jpg. So files with multiple layers will not fly (like photoshop, gimp, sai, etc.)

Hopefully this helps!

-Genesis

Its not the terrain textures it's the object textures I'm having problems with.
Unless I should do this method with my objects.
I'll give it a try but please spar me more info on this topic :)
