On the subject of terrain mesh creation, some of the stuff in the blog Clive refers to may be helpful - describing process etc. Unfortunately Rob (Biff) was a bit cagey on some points of detail.
I have put what I hope is all of Rob's blogs on the subject of CFS3 terrain creation, into the one MS Word document. If anyone wants a copy, either PM me or if its worthwhile I can upload the document.
Was Brundu working on an Eastern Front theatre? The material might be of use to him, don't recall how useful it is. Unfortunately it is all in English but perhaps translateable with software.
