Terraforming Islands.

Yes, there is countless threads about this, but I haven't been able to find the answer I'm looking for.

The terraform mods I've found so far have all been making mountains that just look like replicas of the hills.

What I'm looking for is the ability to make mountains, not oversized hills.

Code: Select all
TerraFormMountainLevel0Width = 128;
TerraFormMountainLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormMountainLevel2Width = 32;
TerraFormLakeLevel0Width = 32;
TerraFormLakeLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormLakeLevel2Width = 128;
TerraFormFlatLevel0Width = 32;
TerraFormFlatLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormFlatLevel2Width = 128;

TerraFormHillLevel0Width = 126;
TerraFormHillLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormHillLevel2Width = 32;
TerraFormMountainDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormLakeDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormHillDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormFlatDeformRatio = 1;
TreePlace0Width = 16;
TreePlace1Width = 32;
TreePlace2Width = 64;

Find the lines and replace with these.These are the edited lines.If you click enough it usually makes the mountains higher.

Okay, is this change compatible with the GEP?

Well, having incorporated the changes into my game, all I get is huge hills. No mountains like the default ones formed when you create a new island.

That's the closest you can get to mountains.If you use the flatten tool properly you could create jagged mountains.Make mountains on mountains again and you can get it larger and higher.

Be warned though, you don't want to increase the values too much, otherwise the game will crash after a very short period of time.

Replace the following values with the ones in the constant ini. This is compatable with the GEP up to repacing the cam view and mountain levels, and I guess tree placement.

Code: Select all
TerraFormMountainLevel0Width = 128;
TerraFormMountainLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormMountainLevel2Width = 32;
TerraFormLakeLevel0Width = 32;
TerraFormLakeLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormLakeLevel2Width = 128;
TerraFormFlatLevel0Width = 32;
TerraFormFlatLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormFlatLevel2Width = 128;


Code: Select all
TerraFormHillLevel1Width = 64;
TerraFormHillLevel2Width = 32;
TerraFormMountainDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormLakeDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormHillDeformRatio = 1;
TerraFormFlatDeformRatio = 1;
TreePlace0Width = 16;
TreePlace1Width = 32;
TreePlace2Width = 64;


Code: Select all
FollowCamMinPitch = -90;
FollowCamMaxPitch = 20;
FollowCamMaxDistanceOffset = 80;
WorldCamMinPitch = -30;
WorldCamMaxPitch = -1;
WorldCamMinDistance = 1;
WorldCamMaxDistance = 145;
WorldCamTerrainOffset = -2;
WorldCamFOVWhenLow = 60;
WorldCamFOVWhenHigh = 60;
WorldCamMinFOVHeight = 10;
WorldCamMaxFOVHeight = 100;

It is. The GEP Messed with those exact values. Everything else not listed in the coding stays the same.

I saw this video in youtube, where there's instead of mountains there's walls of grass, hills I don't know what to call them. But here's the video

Anyone knows how to do this long slopping hill??? :argh:
