Here's the source code for those who's intrested...
It's a bit of a mess, but the important thing is that it works ;D
It seems so easy, where are the instructions for the program. I want to get better at it and know it clean and smoothly not rough

The registration is free, it's not a demo. Just click at Help->Register Product.

You'll have to have a hotmail/live account in order to register.
The registration must be done in Internet Explorer, otherwise it doesn't work(I don't know if it the same issue on Firefox since I use Google Chrome).

You will learn the instructions and all that stuff by looking at tutorials, sample code and by trying to reconstruct other programs, like Notepad or something...
If you want to do it the hard way, then read a book or something. Just as you, I haven't red a single book about programming.

The sourcecode for the terrain builder is messy because it consists of too many different task, mixed together into a giant soup.

In the soup, you will find the code for building the zip, creating the heightmap-list-variable, creating the heightvalues, generating the normals(in order for Alice to calculate the lighting and the backface culling), generating the suitable texture, generating a random heightmap, converting big-endian values to little-endian(since Alice's mesh-file are little-endian) and so on...

Btw, the terrainbuilder is the program that generates the terrain. The terrainbuilder interface is just a shell which extracts the terrain builder and runs it.
In other words: If you want to look at the terrain builder's source code, forget about the terrain builder interface project.

You could try to open the 3D object in Blender(or an other program) and render the top-view without shadows in order to get the texture, then render the output as heightmap.

Take a look here:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Do...p_from_a_Plane

I think you could, for instance, create a heightmap from a CS-map with this method.

Well zento that is a good idea however I think I just found out another way. There is a sketchup plugin for making heightmaps. I am going to try that. If I doesnt work I will export the model as an ase from sketchup via a plugin and do it in blender.
Yeah My 200th post
