You can do two things; either set the altitude key to final position, or add a tex coordinates from XYZ shader before the surfaces shader intended. In the latter case you can leave the altitude key as it was.

Btw. I don't know how fast your machine is, but two compute terrains is making it very slow to render. Maybe the impact of either isn't that big, so you might test that.

Sorry not to reply earlier, only saw this on the train this morning.
As Dune says I would add the XYZ shader after the last node and before your new nodes.
You can then set your height as required and it will be constant.

You could probably get rid of one of the Compute terrain nodes with a little tweaking. I can't remember why I put two in there.

Dune, cyphyr
Just a quick note to say "thanks!".That was exactly what i was looking for!
And removing the second compute node did speed things up - a lot.(This was addressed previously in this thread re "holes" or geometry or something.)

Great stuff to make fantasy world, thanks a lot!
Fractal, surreal, abstract, the main thing is not everyday like the bread roll with liver cheese from the sausage stand around the corner, although it is of course great that there are sausage stands without which the social bustle would come to a standstill ;)
