Video tutorial: Realistic Mountains

Recommended Posts

I recorded this some time back in August showing you how you can make realistic mountain terrain.?

As the video states, this only covers the mountain itself, not the surrounding area. It was fairly rushed, but covers basic detailing, which really is just littering the area with rocks and bushes, and how to create Himalayan cliffs as well.


Video summary:

1. Start lowest to highest

2. Use small brushes of equalizer and raise/lower land

3. Close your eyes and click everywhere with small details (i.e. dirt, rocks, bushes, trees)

This is a very neat trick! Thanks for sharing - it sure will come in useful, I'll definitely try this out on my next map. :)

      Hey guys, check out this video. https://youtu.be/560UuJstw6k   Several days ago we were discussing about the engine they used to use for Stronghold 2. After 4:15 they even say few things about the engine. Apparently it they picked some engine, and they made a lot of changes into it. I thought you might find this video interesting cause we were mentioning the engine recently.

    • Stronghold 2 Tutorial for games starting as a freeman

      Hi. This is a video I recently made. Today I was editing it, because I was called on my phone at some moment. I wanted to cut that part.   I hope this will help those who find it easier to play starting with 5000 gold or more. It's a short 25 minutes video. There's nothing exciting to see in the video, but I hope it's going to be helpful.   The video turned out to be low quality, so I will try to convert it again, and re-upload it. Hopefully I would turn out to be better after uploading.
