This is for reference only, so that you can get an idea. The scale is 1 pixel=2 metres, and it's based on Zandor's map.

I hope this lets you get the idea, and also helps when attempting to re-create some level...

Really nice. Anyone ever thought about making a new version of his map but adding PV and PH too with the same style?

I was thinking of asking the same question...

Might be worth adding those alternate versions of Jungle Road, Industrial Jungle, the Lab (to match Pine Valley), Ascent and InGen Town, too...

Oh, and here's my PSD file with heightmaps and other stuff, now at version 7:

Available as an XCF file too:

I've uploaded a single TPM file containing the terrains of the various Trespasser levels (except the TestScenes), it's a 48.1 MB RAR file, and when uncompressed it's a 281 MB TPM file.

http://www.trescom.org/download/downloa ... sMerge.rar

You can resave the JPEG images attached to the first post as BMP ones and place them in the same folder as the TPM file so that they are loaded as textures for those terrains. Then you can import them into 3ds Max or Gmax with the TPM Import MAXscript, or import them into a Trespasser level with GeomAdd, and use them as references when editing terrains.

Exporting the TPM file took almost 30 hours... first I thought the TPM export script had somehow stopped working, but it's really that it was taking a really, really long time...

29 and a half... I interrupted the first two or three attempts after half an hour without seeing any progress, and that's when I decided to revise the TRR expot script in case it was conflicting with the TMP export one... then I itested again exporting a single terrain mesh and it took about 15 minutes, so I concluded it was now working fine and left it exporting the whole thing... never thought it would take THAT long.

At first, I had thought of just uploading a MAX file, but then I thought a TPM file would be more useful...

This is really cool. How accurate it fits the actually terrain itself. Now please someone make a map (and terrain like this) with the early PV, JR and IJ terrain, and then add PH. That would look really cool :D

So which parts of the island do we have no terrain data for (i.e. that can be extracted from the retail levels)? Like the northern / northeastern part of the island? Between Cabo Barreto and Bahia Wafer? That Punta Quiros area looks like there is terrain data?

Well, if you download one of these files:

you'll get your question answered... it's basically part of the terrain covered by the Plains and a little more (from Punta María to Bahía Wafer), then part of the southeast (from Punta Montealegre to Punta Tuarialba) and a really tiny bit at the southwest (Isla Montagne and a corner near Cabo Atrevido).

Last night I uploaded the updated versions of the multi-layer maps, I've just updated the links in the downlaod section...

PSD file version 8:
http://www.trescom.org/files/docs/SornaMap8-psd.zip

XCF file version 8:
http://www.trescom.org/files/docs/SornaMap7-xcf.zip

File size has been incremented by about 10MB for each one after incorporating the four texture maps and bumpmaps from the maps in Hammond's house...
