Terrain Importer
« on: June 17, 2019, 06:22:05 pm »

Is it possible to import detailed terrain to enhance the the existing terrain? 

Say I design a highway for 3km, based on 5 or 10m x-sections with cut/fill slopes and then build a 3D TIN from it in a 3rd party software.  Can I import the TIN/Triangles/mesh and have it enhance the existing terrain?

Technically you can import such a mesh as a model, something like that was done with streets and sidewalks in a demo with Manhattan. It will not enhance the existing terrain, and you'd actually have to lower the terrain (via a vector road) for it to not stick through the model.
