    Mid-

    That makes sense, and I actually understand every bit of it. The one thing I don't get, however, is how do you actually generate the heightfield?

    Well, that's a bit tougher. My heightfield was graciously provided by Redrobes, et al. I haven't had much luck so far with adapting RobA's Gimp tutorials, but you might experiment and see what you can do with this one:

    Unfortunately, PS 7's clouds filter has no controls (frustrating), so I am not sure how easy it will be to adapt the tut. I don't know if later versions of Photoshop add controls to the filter or not.

    Tile 25 huh ? Hold on...

    Heres the color. Ill get a height map in a mo... and here is a light map if you just want to multiply it with whatever color map you come up with for the full shaded version. Save a bit of time eh ?

    My god that light map is rubbish. Here is another slightly blurred one to get rid of all those ghastly lines.

    And finally shaded color. There, that should get you off to a start.

    I have never in my life encountered a group of people who are so willing to help someone. You are truly a great bunch.

    With all sincerity, thank you.
