Hi
Just wondering how you created you Landscape did you use a ready made height map if so how did you do it ?. Or did you just make it by hand using the landscape tool in the construction set ?.

Yes, the landscape has been made off a heightmap. If you look at this picture you can see some of the untextured landscape surrounding finished areas. I am no expert in how a heightmap is made, but as I understand it they are made from images with a special conversion program. Perhaps someone else could tell you more.

If you are curious, you may google for TESAnnwyn. it is the program you can create landmasses based on bmp-images with.

At some point SGMonkey made accurate heightmaps for every province of Tamriel using this program. We are using his heightmap for Skyrim.
