So this is the deal. As a beginner in DBPro I'm maybe doing this the wrong way. And possibly this question has arisen many times before. I've googled, and found part of the answer I seek. Can you guys help me out? I hope so.

I'm using 2 matrixes, for now at least, to generate the landscape. What I would like to know is: How do you determine on what matrix one's walking. I got one for grass, and the other for mountains.

Is this information enough? I hope so. Anyways thanks in advance for any help given.

Best regards

Do the matrices intersect or are they next to each other?
If they intersect then take the highest ground height. If next to each other then switch which matrix you test based on x/z co-ordinates.

Well the matrices is stacked atop of each other like a regular sandwich. Atop is the grass matrix that has parts from a mountain matrix raised from beneath it.

Like OBese said, take the heights of both at the same point and then use the higher value.

GET GROUND HEIGHT etc.

Taking the two matrices, grass=1 and mountain=2 for instance, you can figure out which matrix you are in contact with after your test.

Test matrix 1 and get the ground height from that.
Test Matrix 2 and get the ground height from that.

If height1 > height2 then you are on the grass.

Make sense?

Enjoy your day.
