Lock borders?
« on: February 17, 2015, 04:14:19 PM »
Hi everyone! Is there any way to lock borders of terrain from any kind of changes?
I have 36 maps from tiled build and i need to work on each height map separately so i could link them together after editing.

Thanks for your support  :D

Yes, this is certainly possible, although if you're editing tiles individually its' going to be laborious no matter what you do.

Basically, enforce this by creating a custom mask that has a solid 0 level all around the border and fades to white in the more central areas. You can achieve this by using the mask output of a file input device that loads your terrain; it essentially gives you this for free, though you might want to shrink the area a touch by using an Expander set to Min to back away from the border a bit.

Hopefully that helps!
