I downloaded a region in a sc4m file about a year ago... but it is a one city region, awesome map, but I want it bigger, is there any way possible to take a region in my 'regions' folder and make a grayscale heightmap from it??? so I can adjust the size and make a bigger region???

I know you can turn a grayscale image into a region, but I don't know about the other way around...

G'Day ReshiramLover,


Load the sc4m file in terraformer.

In Global Tools click Export (SC4M/16bitpng)

Name it and ensure to select 16bit files (*.png), click Open.

Click OK in the confirmation pop up.


You now have a 16bit greyscale image of your map, edit it with photoshop or photoline.
