Height Terrain Editor thing not working

Post by Malkin »

Pretty much as the title says. I have no problem creating blocks but I can't create hills and mountains. When I select an area then press "h" the mouse scroll wheel has not effect on the terrain. I tried holding down Ctrl as the video tuturial also suggests but again nothing happens...

Help! (once again..)

OK, let's see if I can explain it to you. There are 2 ways to select a square (or block, depending on how you look at it). The first is to click on it with the left mouse button. Changes then affect the whole block. The second way is to select a corner area with the MIDDLE mouse button (the scroll wheel). That will only affect that corner of the block. You will see that it causes the corner to angle away from the surface area. By controlling how much scroll you use you can create different shapes. Try it out a few times, then come in the IRC channel and ask for me and I'll show you some other tricks that will make it easier for you.

Make sure you first select everything you want to make a hill/mountain on, than press h once, try to scroll then, I'm sure it'll work

Cheers! Worked perfectly using the mouse/click to select the terrain. :D

Thanks
