Ohh, love those hangs. That was the idea I was going for with fake rocks but usually ended up giving up on larger hangs as pushing rocks out meant somewhere there would be a terrain fold that looked ugly.

Though it seems you only attached a preview.

Thanks. Interesting setup. The only problem I have with tilt and shear is that the effects are only local (on the good side of the mountain), but you can overcome that by adding extra (normal or lateral) displacement (by offset, or with min slope) of the whole terrain after the compute terrain, bulging the mountains.

It'd be cool if PFs were capable of more cliffy stuff. Almost nye impossible without some manipulating. Twist and Shear seems to be the easiest method to obtain a cliff face.

This is one of the reasons I want to figure out stepping without Strata, if you want to help on that attempt. xD

A series of offset displacements with each one set to different heights might work, .

That's what I usually do, is just offset the terrain for a cliff, but was hoping to come up with a blue system to slap into anything for more of a dynamic approach.

Also, glad to see you had some success mixing in strata at different angles, I was doing that awhile back but was never coming across anything I like.

Try this - see if you can make it work better!
