liked your video ! Before this i was thinking making a terrain is going to be really hard but yeah it’s not now. Also liked the lotr references haha

Maybe it’s the video is there somewhere but i’d like to ask, i have 2 acres of land (in the real world) was wondering how do i go about mapping that.
Pull and push up the vertices after converting it to a ‘editable poly’?

I don’t intend to make it really accurate but just the basic drops and slopes, borders, place the trees, big boulders.

Intent is to landscape it, so i can commission the shire folk to build it for their lord (me).

Just so you know, you ruined this video tutorial with you incessant Hobbit references. I never watched any of these movies (nor have most sane people).

been ut2k4 gaming for 3 years now.  mapping and modeling for the last year.  kept at changing tga to obj then getting a python script that would match the ase export.  your set-up from max to my desktop made an importable ase for unreal’s 2k4 editor.  that one motion finally makes some big waves in my mesh work for upcoming maps.  🙂  glad I could be a help in owing u one or more.  “|  see u then!!  -msi
