Making hills

Recommended Posts

Also, along with the contour lines, use plenty of elevation points along the way to force the terrain into place.

Sometimes lower/higher elevations will "leak" through your contour lines causing the jagged effect. Use contour lines two squares deep to prevent the "leaks"

Let us know if you need more help.

I found that the most straight forward way to do elevations is by defining the very peak of the hill, the bottom contour, and creating a web of “guide lines” to give it a natural slope line.

Something along these lines:


Scale also has a lot to do with how smooth the hill will turn out - don't try squeezing a 50m tall hill into a 10x10m area tongue.gif
