Making a terrain for a model to stand on can be a time consuming process in Vue. I know a couple of tricks to make work but I wanted something to make it easier. A python script seemed the obvious answer. I’ve been hacking around with it all weekend. It’s not ready for public release yet because for larger terrains it runs very slow. I want to see if I can paint some go faster stripes on the side. I also want to tidy the code up a bit. However as a bit of a teaser here is a little demo of making platforms for a cylinder and a cube to stand on…
First a cylinder and a cube above the terrain.
Now I run the script and the terrain is modified.
Finally I drop the cube and cylinder onto the terrain.
