Making fast terrain and adding backroun images?
show user profile  wolfy2449
Hello, i want to make a fast terrain but i dont remember how, there was one black/white map i use and then changed something and this way it altered the entire map. Anyone remember it??

Also how exactly can you make an image of mountains to be around that terrain??? So you can see it from every side 360??

sounds like you want a displacement map for your terrain & a sky box for the environment.
