Per-pixel land types

Postby Hinklemister » Sat Jan 28, 2006 11:58 pm

I started tried to make a resolution 4 texture with per-pixel land types and I got a really strange error message which is as follows;

calc_:TX_GenMap_Super warning

- Hi-res texture for land type 'snow' not found at ''

L3DTio_LoadImage error:

- Unsupported file format

I'm not positive what this means but it kind of froze repeating this error about 3 thousand times before I clicked cancel. It looks as if it's saying that it can't find or load the right texture but that doesn't make sense to me. :roll:

Oops.

That's another broken thing with the per-pixel land types. It probably requires each land type to have a high-res texture defined, which the snow land type does not. I'll fix this code for the next release, but in the mean-time the workaround is to add the following lines to the 'snow' land type in the 'temperate32.cli' climate file (it's right at the bottom):

Code: Select all
#HiTexName:   "snow\snow.jpg"
#HiTexBlend:   0


Cheers,
Aaron.

Hello again,

Yup, I missed one 'if' statement. The bug is fixed for the next release. Also, if a texture isn't found in the future, it will give the error message once and then continue quietly (unless you hit cancel).

Cheers,
Aaron.

Thanks Aaron! It's always kind of annoying when it repeats the error so many times. I have to constantly clear it so that it won't crash.
