TRAILER (landscape materials and foliage used in this video are not included)

All my REAL-WORLD heightmaps/terrains, including this one, are UNIQUE on Unreal Engine Marketplace because:

  1. I use real-world data with the best possible resolution (most of the cases 1 meter horizontal precision and about 30 cm vertical precision). Resolutions higher than this are not possible because of the current technological limits.
  2. I am the only one who's real-world heightmaps PRESERVE the real-world SCALE
  3. My real-world heightmaps are not procedurally generated in some kind of software like World Machine or Gaea where a heightmap can be generated in minutes. Instead, I use pretty complex manual methods to transform the High Resolution Digital Elevation Models (DEM) into heightmaps which are in the end perfect copies of real terrains/landscapes. Because of this, creating a single real-world heightmaps can take up to 3 hours.
  4. My real-world heightmaps are the only heightmaps from UE Marketplace which simultaneously respect all the above statements.

This pack contains 148 real-world PNG greyscale heightmaps which will help you digitally recreate in Unreal Engine, breathtaking landscapes from USA. I tried to offer as much diversity as possible so in this pack there are landscapes from 27 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Los Angeles, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming. All heightmaps have a resolution of 8129 x 8129 (recommended by Unreal) and each landscape will have a surface area of about 64 square Km. To recreate these landscapes I used Digital Elevation Models with 1 meters precision so they are extremely accurate . The heightmaps (landscapes) are perfect for photorealistic scenes in games, movies or any other realistic open - world project.

Step By Step instructions of how to integrate the heightmaps into your level:

1. Install one of the FREE plugins: "Export PNG" or "ILIAD"

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 (or ILIAD Actions - Export in case you are using ILIAD)

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 USA_II_145_XY_100_Z_58 , the X and Y scale is 100 and Z scale is 58. 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...

This pack contains 6 Demo Maps.
