I am a total beginner and serially clueless at this stage

Can you mix uhm "height map palettes" over large surface tiles? I.e. eroded mountains looking like reddish mars landscape in the south, shifting gradually to sharp jutting grey rock with densely packed snowy valleys, etc. ?

What's the biggest tile / map ever made?


I follow Anna B Mayer on patreon, she makes maps that are 200-300 km in size, mostly for 2D purposes but they look awesome in vue. They come with different color maps. I say it's possible if you create zone with the layout generator and use it as "mask". You could also makes yourself 2D masks in photoshop and import them as file input if you feel too clueless.

So basically, yes.

A test on Color map I did last week. All colors are made in WM.
