I actually do have an account, but the first thread I've started has been waiting for approval for 10 days....so here I am! ^^

World Machine gives me the possibility to build a terrain in a full heightmap output or build it in tiles.

Might be my impression, but the tiled output takes a lot more time than the one-piece one, so I thought to ask if it's possible to make a full build and then tile it afterwards.

Or if it's possible to implement this feature. =)

Hi there,

Normally the tiled build should proceed approximately the same, or quicker than an equivalent sized individual build, but it depends alot on the particular devices used.

You can slice up a single file into tiles however, by creating a second world with a File Input device and loading your single output file into it. Then setup the tiled output and export from that world.
