    Bingo.

    Settings under min/max slope. Use values 0 - 2 to determine angle.

    image of the results. Pretty good

    This is interesting.. from the documentation.. 0 = 0 1 =45degrees etc...


    Min/MaxSlope - Used in procedural terrain texturing. Clamps this material to being rendered if terrain angle is within limits set in properties.

    Most properties are the same as Min/MaxHeight.

    Base in this case refers to the angle of the slope. 0 is 0 degrees, 1 is 45 degrees, scaling up to 90 degrees being infinity.

    yeah tried that too. but maybe have a go at that again.(its quite possible I had something else not set properly the first time I tried multi terrain layers.

    cheers.

    You must have applied the Materials to the same Layer you want to create a layer per material.

  • [Terrain Editing Help] using slope min/max and multi detail materials [solved]

    Hey Gents.

    Irontaxi here. Intro. Have worked on alot of different mods and engines over the past years and have alway had a soft spot for unreal so decided to come back to it and see what I can do with its newest incarnation.

    SO. doing fine so far. quick screen shot of terrain

    PROBLEM:I have successfully applied my primary overlay material (1:1 real world image) to the terrain as well as a detail material. No problem as you can see.

    I then added 2 additional detail materials to the terrain layer setup hoping to utilize the max/min slope features and have the detail materials on the terrain according to those settings.

    But despite my best efforts I can't get the other 2 detail layers applied to the terrain. It simply doesnt apply the secondary and third detail materials.

    I have included a screen shot of the layer setup. If anyone could offer any insight it would be much appreciated. I know its something I'm just not understanding fully.

    btw. each material applies error free in isolationon the terrain.
