Region to Grey Map ?

7 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I am having a little trouble with water/land borders as @CorinaMarie's posts above have shown. Most, really most maps I've down-loaded shows these glitches. So, is there a way to go the other way around from region to gray map ? That way one can check the height levels. Another option would be to check the heights directly in region/city tile.

SC4 Terraformer can happily load a SC4 region for editing and save it as a greyscale image. Water is one of the hardest parts to get right, I find myself switching a lot between terraformer, Photoshop and the in-game region when tweaking it.

Yes, it's related to it. What can I do about it?

Other than lighten the gray part to raise the terrain, I'm at a loss for what else to do.

    That's my whole problem. I have never got to make terraformer, Desginer, SCm (I may getting the spelling wrong) and al those to work for me. Even with the tutorials when they applied.

    Me too, my dear lady. Rising the height levels with your suggestion does not answer the problem of Land/Water levels.
    I posted a Reply to that somewhere else... So I'll get back to that -and to this one. I'm convinced that this an important topic, so I will keep commenting at it...
