Really helpful Fatcontroller. I learned so much with geo basic tutorials and those tips complete what I learned before. Congrats, I hope you keep posting tips. I would love a very short video explaining to export from L3DT to Obj. With the same scale that the game in order to be able to put the objects.

Arenacross tracks are coming.... :D

Sorry paco, you sent me a pm about this. I read it and was going to reply when I was at my pc but completely forgot. I'll happily make a vid in that too.

Heightmap version 0.02 :)

Fats, did you try to do all jumps in one project? i made more gradients for the jumps now, so i can set the height in ps (opacity). i can imagine if i do it with only one gradient, the jumps like the whoop section has to less information (grayscale), otherwise they are more black. :)

Wow that's one way of doing it lol.. No I have never done that, like I said I usually just do all my stuff in L3DT using the same method I made the tutorial for building jumps. You can do it like that but if it was me I'd rather have all my jumps as separate layers I can move around. In PSP or Gimp I use the screen layer to get rid of the black, in Gimp you can apply 'Colour to Alpha' for each jump to get rid of the black, not sure about PS as I hate it :P

Yep, all jumps in one project isnt so good :) All the rotation and stuff.. and for future projects it would be better to have it in seperate projects, too.

So, i will start again with ver. 0.01 :)) But i have to say that i learned so much in just one day :)

Good to know Phil, and you will learn your own ways of doing things. All these tutorials show things I've mostly learned myself and methods I use which others might not find easiest, but for people just starting out I think they are some of the most useful things to know. Of course I never would have found learning how to create tracks so simple if it wasn't for Geo's tutorials!
