What you made though could make a great macro in itself! Image editing for textures is a nice feature in itself!

Thats a clear explaination
I was just trying something extra
Though i dont know how to do this FAKE bump
And i do not really know what specular is

(Sounds stupid for someone whos into 3d,but im just not all of techniqual launguage)

What is it that specular should do?

A specular is simply the reflection of light source on the object, In our case light source is Sky (we can specify a colorizer gradient as the sky color), and terrain is the object (although specular is not necessary, but for wet sand or rocks near water level, it could be helpful).

For Bump I have an idea, which I'm yet to experiment with. Once the diffuse part is complete and I see it's architecture, then we can tackle bump.

Alright thanks for clearing this up
I will work on this today

The specular shouldnt be to hard, maybe lightmap maker?
To actually get sun and sky color in you specular
It also deals with the angle and elevation

Yes exactly, lightmap maker gets the sky color perfectly, but a colorizer gives user control over dramatic scenarios like golden sunset etc.

So i do not use the sun color of the lightmapmaker?
Add a graduent colorizer in the mix for more control
Also this lightmapmaker is not the same one as for the AO module?

I have started work on this as well, but my speed is slow and I'm colorblind, so no help on diffuse mind you! 8)

Yes I see the colors, but when red and green (any shade or mixture) appear together, they change into a same color (like orange or yellow) and I cannot tell what it really is. Purple I have never seen, apart from that everything is good, I have learnt to believe numbers and color codes rather than how they look.

Bumps will come later, I'll help you with that. Just get the diffuse working, like mixing colors to make it realistic looking. this part seems to be the core, rest we can derive from diffuse color output.

Let me install the basic version of new wm build, then you can send the macro sample. That would be much easier I guess.
