if you're an rper and you've seen feyvern or the new lathirion maps, then you know what it looks like. What i want to know is: How do you stack high dirt with high dirt or high dirt with temple or how do you morph high dirt with low jungle? Please someone help!! :-(

To Marine: Are you still pissed? Lawlz

Yes, im relatively new, but I know how to make blends and I've learned really quickly. What do you need stacked?

Ok, well it's going to be hard to explain this w/o pictures but I'll try my best.

You first put water down. On the edge of the water you put high dirt so that they're touching. After that you just copy and past the high dirt and you can of corse remove the water.

If you see the dark brown dirt between the cliff and the water, you did not put them close enough.

that makes no sense, the water copies over the other cliff before it...

Ok, open this map, all it shows is what I was trying to say.

You just use that terrain as your template, copy and past the cliff on top of itself. Do not include the water

Ok... As I said it's hard to explain this w/o pictures, this time I've included a map that aquires all the steps. Hopefully you'll be able to understand. It reads from left to right obviously.

All you are copying is a 2x2 square of the cliff, no water is neccessary.

You'd need to spend a lot more time on it than I did to make it perfect/pretty.

Of course when you stack cliffs, there's no excuse to have blockiness. If done right, you can have a smooth cliff.

You'd probably also want to look at Wilhelm's tutorial here:
