Terrain has not only Transitions but also Base Textures.

Please read first the Ogre Manual for Material Infos:

Whole Contents: ... C_Contents

This is a defined transition:

material tileid_1674 : transition_grass_cobblestone
   set_texture_alias blend_mask tex_blend_se_corner_cross.png

Where tileid_1674 means the UO map-tile-id.

transition_grass_cobblestone is the name of the transition i specified above in file terrain.material,

//grass - cobblestone transition
material transition_grass_cobblestone : terrain_transition
   set_texture_alias firstbase
   set_texture_alias secondbase

and set_texture_alias blend_mask tex_blend_se_corner_cross.png is the applyed blend_mask. You can find all blendmasks in \data\terrain\textures\. Only one Set of Blendmasks is not done so far.

Take a look at the second definition material transition_grass_cobblestone : terrain_transition.
This means, take definition terrain_transition and copy it, than apply a different name and you can use it. You can also overload it with different settings.

Thanks Sience, I will try messing around with that code
I added you on msn by the way

Here are two different textures I made:


Grass 1024
Forest 512

Oh, should I recompile after I make changes to terrain.material?

No need to recompile.

Just restart Iris.

Btw. Textures are looking good :-).

I think i will make different texture packs.

:) thanks, you guys can use any one you want

I have another question if you don't mind

Let's say I want block 327,333 to have tileid 203 instead of 199. Do I have to edit UO's files?

I noticed tiles like 198 and 199 are used in solid grass areas and also in areas bordering with other textures. If I give 198 and 199 a tex_blend, some places will look good and other places ugly. If I don't, same thing will happen.

Any ideas why there are two base textures beside each other, and how to fix it?

Also I added all rock-forest transitions to the code, and it seems to be working fine
All the rocks scattered around the map

might look a bit better, as well as the mountainside-forest transitions
