Need help with terrain problem
« on: August 09, 2014, 04:40:49 PM »
Iím having a bit of trouble with my terrain mod, and teammates have urged me to post this in a public thread.

This is how the shoreline looked July 28:

My teammate Swordmaster created this terrain mod for me according to my specifications, and it is based on SuddenValley.

This is how it looked August 6:


And this is SuddenValley straight out-of-the-box with no modifications:


This is how it looks today:


Iíve used Willyís mod successfully until now, so having it suddenly go corrupt is a mystery. To the best of my knowledge, Iíve done nothing to cause this, but a plugins conflict appears to have manifested itself. I removed every folder in plugins, five at a time, but there was no change so Iím appealing to you for help because I'm completely puzzled.

Thanks in advanceÖ

It looks like it might just be because the beach is steeper in the last pic.  You can adjust the beach settings by opening up the core terrain mod file ("...TerrainParameters...") in the Reader.  At the bottom of the main exemplar are options like the width of the beach from the water, and height it will extend.

There's another exmplar in that file ("Texture39") that adjusts the spread and blending of beach textures.  There's more info on editing terrain mods here and here.
