This is a very simple question, I have a terrine engine going and I want to use some detail textures on it. Right now Im precalculating a texture and then pasting it over a heightmap , how can I do this?

I was just looking at this stuff last night. Go to Vterrain.org and look up their stuff on terrain textures. As you''ll find, there are several ways to implement detail textures, each implementation with its own pro''s and con''s. Just pick the one that''s right for you.

Most of flipcode''s patrons seem to specialize in terrain engines, and there are some really nice tuts/articles there. So go check them out (www.flipcode.com).

Quick question. That VTerrain site is excellent except all the articles are in PostScript format. How do I open them?!

I don''t have the URL, but do a search for "ghostview" or even "postscript". A search will bring up some sites that have ghostview for download, which you can use to view postscript files.
