(path to terragen)/tgdcli.exe >> mylog.txt
Quote from: neuspadrin on June 08, 2009, 09:38:28 pmIf you want to do things like that you run it in command line mode (by running tgdcli.exe instead of the normal tgd.exe)This will spit out basically everything terragen does as it does it. From preview render workings, to objects being populated, number, shaders added, everything. If anything it might be nice to turn off preview rendering pass information (as it spams you starting pass 1, 2, a TON lol)Also, if you want to be able to copy/paste those logs onto the forums, you could run from command line Code Select Expand(path to terragen)/tgdcli.exe >> mylog.txtIt will print everything into the file instead of to the console, which will allow you to upload it here nice and easy. Might be useful to catch where something might cause a crash.

What I meant is when you can't upload a scene to explain a point, you could simply paste the specific setting information into your post. Also, I would use these logs to with a file compare program (I use Ultra Compare) to find out what I changed between scene increments.
