How To Change Terrain Size and Keep Your Height Edits.

Postby Lorul1 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 8:30 pm

I got this question on discord and figured I would let you guys know how to change your terrain size without losing the work you've already done !!

okay first open Zero Editor, go to the "height" tab then select "marquee". select the are you want then press "CTRL+C" without clicking left mouse. Go to "terrain" (top) right then select "create new terrain" -
select the size you want and remember it has to be a power of 2 meaning 1 by 1 , 2 by 2 , 4 by 4 , 8 by 8 , 16 by 16 , 32 by 32 , 64 by 64 , 128 by 128 , 256 , 512, 1024, 2048, etc ...

The highest you can go without compatibility issues is 512 by 512 I believe , BUT some maps such as Tattoine at war are at 1024 by 1024
and that's the maximum terrain size you should go because if you go any higher you will give unpredictable issues for everyone.

ANYWAYS create your new terrain size and then zoom out a little and you will see your still dragging around your copied terrain ! Now carefully place it where your original was and then remember to click RIGHT MOUSE to end the process or else your terrain could get messed up.

And there you go !

None of those numbers are power of 2 but they are multiples of 2. :)

power of two:

2^x, where x is an integer.

So possible values are:
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048,....
