Frank Skilton wrote:Eric, how about including some terrain pallete material files (pre-exported .mtl files) like the ones you have for water etc. I know you can open the terrain tutorial world and export the terrain shader out yourself, but you know, it's the little things that make a difference.
Frank Skilton wrote:Regarding detail textures, I haven't tried yet but I can't imagine it would be too difficult to add that feature in via the shader editor. One problem that I can forsee though is that you can't adjust the scale of individual textures, every texture in the shader is affected. Any plans on official support for detail textures?

If these textures are 2048^2 , then I assume each of these is brought in through the create pallette tick when importing. However, when I tried that, the cmd console said they were'nt the right size?

dwalther2 wrote:Finally, when you import the texture blocks into the pallette, how do you design a new shader. They come into the pallette but the wiki doesn't explain what to do from there. Sorry for being such a confused newcomer, but as I said in a previous post, things are'nt as clear to me as they might be to someone who has worked with the engine for a while.

If so why not the T coord ? When importing my terrain palette which was set to 1024 x (9 * 1024) I got the top two terrains halving the material manager box (and the terrain when created) when I had both S and T texcoords set to 1.0 ... setting both to 0.5 seems to give me the right result ... but I am curious as to what is going on here ?
