OLD TRAILER (landscape materials from the trailers are not included in this pack)
This pack contains 216 high quality PNG Real World Heightmaps, created from real world data - Digital Elevation Models with 1 meter precision - which will help you recreate in Unreal Engine, real world landscapes from Belgium (Provinces Liege and Luxembourg). All 216 landscapes have a surface area of 16 square Km (4 by 4 Km) and all have 4033 X 4033 resolution (recommended by Epic) and they are as accurate as you can get with nowadays technology. The heightmaps can be used for games, movies, cinematic trailers etc.
The landscapes are so accurate that you will be able to clearly see not only the roads or rivers, but also the manmade footpaths, different erosion types depending of the sun position, city/village infrastructure. Using this, you will be able to recreate in a very short time, landscapes, cities, villages even highways from Belgium.
IMPORTANT: The FREE plugin Export to PNG has not been updated yet to UE5 so you will not be able to export the heightmaps from UE5. So for the moment, you need to use any of the versions 4.21 - 4.27 to export the heightmaps and once exported you can reimport them in any UE5 projects and everything works as it should.
Step By Step instructions of how to integrate the heightmaps into your level:
1. Install the FREE plugin: Export PNG
2. Select in the Content Browser the PNG heightmap you want to use in your project
3. Right click on the selected PNG texture (heightmap) and select Asset Actions - Export
4. Save the PNG heightmap to your hard disk (keep the same PNG format)
5. Open the map you want to import the heightmap into and select Landscape Mode
6. Choose option Import from file and select the previously exported PNG file
7. In order to keep the exact proportions of the real landscape, in the name of every heightmap you can find the X, Y and Z scales for that heightmap. For example, in the filename Belgium12_XY_100_Z_17 , the X and Y scale is 100 and Z scale is 17. So type the correct XYZ scales and then press Import to import the heightmap into your level.
8. Done! In a few seconds you should see the landscape...
