For example, you want to generate a small area around your home or office.
Many new users specify the maximum size of the textures, in the hope of having the maximum texture quality.
Often the provider does not have tiles on such zoom levels.
RWT can reduce the size of the texture if there are no tiles to generate it.
This will increase the speed of generation, and reduce memory usage.
For a large area, this setting does not matter.
Hi Alex, I want to do what this post says, generate a small area of terrain to match my home; approximately .21 km x .21 km. I've tried and tried to get some quality detail for the height/elevation map. I've been watching 3 of your vimeo videos on how to do this, however while the result yields everything I need, the details just aren't there for a zoomed in area I guess. Here are my steps:
1. Use helper to place selector around my desired location/coord (my home in this case).
2. Copy to clipboard
3. In RWT window insert coord from helper
4. Select 1 x 1 terrain, real world size, Auto detect with height map resolution of 2049.
5. Select ArcGIS for elevation provider
6. Texture provider Bing 2048 x 2048 (Even tried 4096 x 4096 but doesn't change how exact the elevation looks)
Is there any better setting for generating the absolute best height map detail for such a small, zoomed in area? My home is on the side of a mountain next to a river. The specifics of the terrain detail is what I really want to see match my landscape. i also own online maps, so like the offline generation video I could export the map for that asset if it will help me zoom in. I haven't bothered trying this because I want to get familiar with RWT first; plus I don't think it will help in my case.
Think of it like this: I generate my small terrain, and place a vehicle prefab on the terrain generated with RWT. in-game I drive vehicle game object around my house/landscape. Wiill the terrain look like real life driving around my house?
Thanks for your awesome help to the community Alex. I didn't see a specific tutorial from you regarding this (small area for home/office) so I hope I don't duplicate your work.
