Macros and Plugins / Scottish Peaks Overlay
April 29, 2018, 08:01:37 am
Does anyone have an example or could add a screen of an exmaple of this macro working with a file input for the heightmap? No matter how I edit the parameters it does not affect my landscape at all.

I am using the line tool in layout generator to carve roads and rivers into my terrain. However I can only have one profile per line. So all vertices on the line share the same profile.

Is there a way to have a custom profile for a specific vertex? Roads and rivers naturally widen and narrow, become deeper and more shallow and generally change shape as they move along a landscape. It would be great if you could replicate this in World Machine. I know I can add a fractal to break up the shape but doesn't really give great results and you cannot fine tune a profile at a specific point.

Hi. I am trying to add a texture/colour at a specific size, shape and location to my WM landscape from a PNG generated within GIMP/photo shop. I have drawn the shapes in GIMP and filled them with solid colour using only Red, Green & Blue. I can then import this PNG into WM using the File Generator and selecting the "interpret as RGB" option. Now all i want to do is assign different colours to each of the R, G & B channels in WM, and then drape/superimpose that colour onto the terrain within WM, as per the size, shape and location in the GIMP PNG file. However from here I have become pretty stuck. I have worked through the WM tutorials and searched YouTube, forums and everywhere in between, but with no luck. I suspect there is no info on this becasue it is so simple, but I cant seem to get it right.

Basically I just want to be able to draw custom solid colour shapes (RGB) within GIMP and then use them as a mask to drape a certain colour onto the WM terrain, as you can do in Unreal Editor.

(P.S. I know I can probably use the Layout Generator to create the custom shapes and apply colour according to that shape, but I need to create the shapes within GIMP/Photoshop as I am basing them off a satelite image, in order to get an accurate representation of the area I am trying to represent).

Any help would be very much appreciated.
