a. Proper erosion brush
b. Win

That's it, basically.

Opinions on Instant Terra?

What is the general workflow for roads in deserts like pic related? Is the road just a texture or its own object?

Second question: whenever I work with terrains in say blender, I have a hard time navigating the map texture-painting. If I zoom in or rotate the camera, then the way I've been painting the texture becomes inconsistent. The texture painting depends on how I'm looking at the terrain.

is your texture becoming too small or what do you mean? Your normal maps are tangent, yes?

Yes. If I zoom in, the texture becomes too small. If I zoom too far back, it becomes too large. If I rotate the camera, the texture becomes angled and stretching usually occurs.

Pretty sure the road is usually an object, but I think it could work as a texture as well. The lines will be decals anyway so you'd just paint a simple asphalt on your terrain.

So you want an effect like this?

This is possible and I know how its done. Is this what you really want or are you just bullshitting?
>>
>>607833
huh? no. sorry, I must not being clear. I DON'T want the texture changing angle or size because of the view. Basically, I'm asking how to consistently paint the texture over the terrain.

if the terrain is made from a flat heightmap, then you would texture it flat too.

how do you do it
>>

You download WorldMachine or something similar, generate a height map with a bunch of procedural nodes, import your height map to a 3D program or game engine and create your terrain. Simble as fug.
