the last version i tested of this program was 660 i think and i didnt really get it.
for start, camera was all stupid to move around and i hardly got past that...
also this having to set memory or something.
now i tried new version and noticed with press space and L i get a camera that moves like in spring. cool.
the editing is imo still not usefull at this point. ie if you have a mountain, and want to make a mountan of the same height you have to guess the height for the "set heightmap" tool.
also needs more tools than just free hand brush.
like lines, circles, squares.
also floodfill: make a circle of mountains (like a crater) then click in the middle and it becomes a complete hill.
see C&C Zero Hour Editor for stuff like that.
So I ended up making my heightmap in paint and other graphic software and juse use "load heightmap."
And wow, that is very usefull! :)
Much quicker than doing the mapconv compiling, zip, test in spring process that always stopped me from map making.
I did all the editing in graphic software and use springmapeditor as preview. That works good for me. Easier to apply filters like blur or copy&paste areas.
weee nice detail texture
Then i started a real map:
didnt know what to with the border/border mountains layoutwise so I left it at that stage.
second try at a map
blubblub just some random feedback
