Terrain meshes editing using Gmax

Recommended Posts

Remember the Pt.Reyes area in the San Francisco region.http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/ptreyes.jpgThe next version of GeoTilesViewer (v 3.0) will support import / export of terrainelevation from the geotiles.tag file. We can just load an work on a quarter of a megatile using a grid of 129x129 meshes due to a limitation of Gmax to a plane of 200x200 segments max. http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm0_abag.jpgThe maximum usable texture is that of level 3 of fu3. There is then 4 pixel between mesh points.http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm1_abag.jpgEditing is limited to the z axis only, then import function will just extract the height data.http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm2_abag.jpgThe height are in km so 0.172 means 172 meters.http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm3_abag.jpgThe split direction of the squares are editable for fu3 also.http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm4_abag.jpgThe texture is just a help to synchronize the terrain elevation with the picture. The export is using just the 3-d-model without the texture file. http://www.agtim.ch/fu3/gm5_abag.jpgI have uploaded this example to avsim library so you can run a test. The next version of GeoTilesViewer will follow in the next time. This will help to make better elevation parts for the new region. :-wave agtim

Hi Glidernut,Thank you, putting buildings or models on the pits may work also, but no runway. In the Geneva tile I have a pit at the end of a runway and this is very bad when reaching them, all becomes white.My last pits at the tests are very large but solution is on the way :-):-wave agtim
