I want to create a terrain or matrix and then make a mesh out of it

is there a command for this?

makemeshfromobject() is exactly what i want but that is for objects (or so the docs seem to say)

You can use dbMakeMeshFromObject on a terrain as internally it is treated like any other regular 3D object in the Basic 3D function set.

ok so heres the problem

Im making a small program to load up a heightmap as a terrain and then export it as a .x object. This is to be used to load terrain objects into cartography shop.

The problem Im having is the mesh it exports apparently has nothing to do with the terrain i am loading or the dbSaveMesh() command does nothing.

the terrain displays properly and such and I was reading a post on this forum about how you cant use dbMakeMeshFromObject() on very large terrains.

My approach was to read each limb out as an object and attach it as a limb on a new object.

here's my code



its more than likely just me not knowing how to use the commands but anyone have any ideas?
