newbie loading heightmap issue
« on: August 19, 2011, 10:39:36 PM »
Hi all!
I am all new to TG2 and hence I am sure that my question is fairly noobish ;)
I would like to create a terrain from the attached image. yet, loading it as a heightmap into a terrain results in ugly spikes. loading it into a shader as displacement image does not produce the desired result either.
I would be very happy, to find some help here :)
thanks for reading

You get spikes because they're all dots. What kind of terrain are you looking for? You might need to blur this image considerably to get smoother hillocks.
