I tried myself at making a map but I somehow made it all above 800 elevation.
This means, that the commanders have their view zoomed in too much, and are unable to see properly

Is there a way to reduce the entire map elevation?
Doing it by brushes messes everything up.

Alternatively, is there a possibility of a client side script to execute at launch that would simply increase max camera zoom out for commanders?

There's a way to import height maps (as greyscale pictures). Maybe there's a way to export them too? Smiley And then lower everything by changing the grey intensity in Photoshop and reimporting it.

Hi, thanks for the idea!

Unfortunately I didn't find an easy way to do this  Sad

Do you think it would be possible to increase the largest brush size?
Right now its something like 16 x 16.

How would I go about increasing that and then simply lower the entire map at once?

Edit: I have found the following two variables that in my opinion have something to do with the brush size:

le_brush "X" (Where X is probably the brush selected)
xr_brushradius "X" (Where X should be the size of the brush)

I didn't have any luck modifying the radius value, it seems to do nothing at all

Edit 2: I was easily able to change one brush's TGA to a full square, so now at least I have a completely square brush and can do a grid by grid lowering of terrain.
The brush size itself I believe is hardcoded in and I have so far not found a way to modify it...

You can try to export and reimport your heightmap.

Heightmaps can be exported using https://www.newerth.com/?id=downloads&op=displayDownload&category=6&file=SavHeightMap.zip

Heightmaps can be imported by place the file (*.png) in the Savage/graveyard directory.

In map editor open console and type:
le_terrain_mergestrength 750
merge_terrain my_image_file.png

le_terrain_mergestrength determines max height. Colors on heightmap correspond to elevation, i.e. white means high and black low elevation.
