  • this is a short howto use the heightmaps, NOT how to create them

    It's a bit confusing how to use the heightmap feature, so here's a short howto.

    Usually a downloadable hightmap comes in one of the standard compression formats, .zip or .rar. So no trouble with this.

    In the TF main folder you should find a folder 'maps' since v7554. If not, create it.
    - unpack the downloaded map to the mentioned maps folder
    - you will find a new folder with the name of the downloaded map (e. g. Hovestaden_4k) and the files info.lua and heightmap.png.
    - move info.lua and heightmap.png into the new folder and there you are
    Now you can select the map in the 'new game' menu

    Hope this helps.
