Heightmap - Ground level
« on: Apr 20, 13, 11:34:17 PM »

Hello, I have a question about what the ground in the editor is, is it wherever I put my height map, or is there some specific location that I must place it at?  Right now the area I created is hovering above where my character is spawning at(no idea why), before I proceed I need to be sure I'm not already screwing things up.

Cheers,

Jack

If you did not create an Arrival path via the Paths panel, then by default the character will spawn at the origin (0,0,0).  I would guess your heightmap is higher (in Y) than the origin at that point, so your character spawns below the land.

Besides the fact that I cannot see your name, you would want to check out the Arrival path on the wiki. This is a pathnode called "Arrival" where the character will spawn :)

Alright, I knew it was something simple like that.  Thanks.  And regarding the forum name, that's taken care of too.

Cheers.
