Here is my latest Blender image. its not pure because the mountains were done in Terragen and the Ter2Blend plugin was used. But I am insanely pleased with the results I got with this. I had always found problems when trying to use Ter2Blend because the terrain wouldn’t line up right with the background image. I figured out that problem, but i was still stuck with the one major problem of Ter2Blend. When it imports the landscapes, it does it but it doesn’t keep the texturing. So to keep it you backbuf a rendered terragen image, and give the terrain a low alpha setting and a material that reflects shadows only (say you had a ship fly over the mountains, it would have a shadow that followed the terrain curves. I got the idea to create a lot of mist in the terragen image and then use blender’s mist settings. I rendered and with a touch of the photo-repair tool in photoshop 7, i got this nice little pic.

I have some wireframes but geocities is being stupid and won’t let me upload them.
