    Transfer issues

    Eric,

    I notice that the terrain often bleeds through transfers when seen in TSRE. Also if there is a transfer already on the terrain, and one adjusts terrain higher, the transfer usually comes out underneath the terrain. The image is of a creek, and notice where it is buried by a high point in the terrain.

    Admittedly, I'm not a fan of transfers with terrain painting being an option.

    What happens if you select and modify the transfer after adjusting the terrain?

    It's been molded to what was there when first applied, and won't know if the terrain was subsequently changed unless you go back and let it rewrite itself.

      Hi Folks,

      Yeah - I've messed around with Transfers - I believe you need to reposition them as Eric stated - after a terrain change.

      Also - keep in mind - Carlo's MG ORTS has a fix to minimize Transfer flashing/flickering - assuming he just increased the vertical distance between Mesh and Transfer - the Official Stable and Unstable ORTS - do not.

      Regards,
      Scott

        I'm considering making the transfer separation configurable. An extra cm can make a huge difference and be imperceptible.

          I'm not steady enough of hand to paint the terrain and I dislike that method because of the large increase in different terrain textures that gets involved. Yes it does look better, no doubt about that but consider the size difference between my original KD sub. and Kenny's version. It is huge.

            Hey guys,

            I don't have any input on the transfer issues. Looking at the photo Jerry posted, in the newer Knoxville route, I did a few of these scenes simply by running a few one lane road sections in the creek bed. A couple of straight and some curves until the creek goes out of sight. Once in position, I would set the terrain to the road sections and then use that water transfer in the auto paint feature of TSRE to paint only the selected road sections. Makes for a nice creek bed.

              When it comes to painting streams, creeks, or rivers. I don't necessarily think you absolutely need a steady hand. Most of those aren't perfectly straight and lined up anyways.

                Kenny, that is sweet! I need to start decking out some waterways like that.
