I'm making some random landscapes for moders to create maps with if they wish.

Here is a "map" I drew of the first one. The blue is the river and ocean, white is the hills/cliffs and black or grey is lower elevation. White-Grey-Black is elevation like a Heightmap. The entire level will slowly slope downhill towards the ocean, the terrain in the plains near the ocean will likely be fairly flat. The white areas in the ocean will be islands.

I don't think I'm going to include a waterfall, I just want a steep hill between the gray and black areas where the river flows downhill that isn't climbable. I don't think The entire river can have water unless the water sheet is able to be set at an angle, which I doubt works in the game engine. But I can include some dips in the terrain where water can be placed. It's a work in progress. If anyone has any ideas to add feel free to share.

Also, if anyone wants to draw their own map I might be able to make a terrain from it too. Let me know.

I just wanted to release a pack of terrains for the community to turn into maps. I might go ahead and texture them(at least 1 I guess) to make the process easier for moders. Finishing touches can be done in TresEd.

Hmm. Just finished replying to you in PM. But I might also be interested in a custom terrain if I map it out in pencil. Sounds like a nice idea.

Go for it. Include as many details as you want also. I'm not a great artist so I just make basic sketches.

I'd love to see someones ideas for a landscape. Are you pretty good with a pencil? I've seen some pencil work of a persons face that looked lifelike. He would roll up a piece of paper into a funnel and put it on the end of the pencil for drawing shading. Don't know if you've tried that.

I'll work on that other thing you asked. I'd have to see screenshots for ideas for the project. I'd scour the net for royalty free images and turn them into something appropriate for Trespasser. But if you use them make sure to include the credits that I document.

Edit: Update. Here is a early draft of the landscape.

Looks interesting so far. Is the playable area going to be focused soley on the riverbed? It seems if so that there might be a lot of empty space on the terrain, which is fine, but I do feel like it might allow for more gameplay options if you were to open things up a bit more as otherwise it looks like you might be limiting your play area a bit excessively here.

I am thinking about having a sort of ravine around the river. Also make the level much longer. It's easy atm to change everything up.
