Creating a heightmap for unreal 4.0


(Galadhlinn) #1

Hello,

I was looking for a heightmap of Skellig Michael Island to build a small world in Unreal 4.0. My search led me here where I found: https://sketchfab.com/models/515a6a1d06444edab0f94f4da52fd2b6

What would be the proper method of creating a heightmap from this for use in Unreal 4.0?

Thank you,

-G

http://terrain.party/ is a pretty good source for heightmaps.

Thanks James,

I do use terrain.party, but not all areas of the globe are supported. Unfortunately, Skellig Michael Island is one such place. I was very hopeful when I saw the 3d model of the island here. I'll keep searching : )

Hmm I see. You may need to dig deeper into various USGS / NASA / ESA earth data sets. I'm sure it's out there.

Alternatively you could ask The Discovery Programme for permission to use their model?
