Can anyone tell me if its possible, as well as how to do it, I want to blend 3 textures, I have my mountains as base and im blending in my grass ect, I got it all setup but I want to blend in a tiberium field ontop of the grass is that possible?

This was my first attempt that changed my whole map lol.

What's difficult about this? Create a new material with the grass/tiberium textures and set it up like any other texture blend, and apply it to the section of the terrain you want. You'll have to cut it in if you want it to look half-way decent.

So I have to basically cut out a hole where I want the tiberium fields and do it that way? The way I was thinking was so I could paint the tiberium onto it the same as I blended, I didnt know if you could make 3 passes and paint a different color vertex paint and it would show up ect.

Painting three passes on one mesh is just plain wrong... I would detach the area you want to blend the field into and apply a 2 pass blend... having three is just going to cause more trouble than it's worth.. you might have to move around some vertices and possibly extrude a bit to get a clean edge to blend.

Also not bad for a first map.. much better than 80% of what's out there haha! Thumbs Up

Looks nice man. Very interesting.

Only one note: I noticed in your preset tree that you "ADD"-ed the preset for the terrain.
When you make a custom map you NEVER-EVAR "Add" things, you must always "TEMP" them.
Edit: Also make sure the temped presetname you give it is 100% unique in the entire preset-list.

Well honestly its not my first map Razz. I just never have released one before, but ya I made a plane and just extruded the edges around until I had a natural looking shape for my tiberium field and booleaned it, it came out pretty good on a trial run, im going to do a real set later on. Still alot more work to do on the map but its getting there.

And zunnie this is just my test setup in LE, I will recreate a new pack when I am ready to move the map into LE for good. But thanks.
