[center]Real Terrain Data Video Tutorial[/center]

After 6 months I finally found the time to revisited, revise and improve my old video tutorial on how to use real terrain data in FS15. It contains 4 different segments making it easier to jump to the part you want to know more about. segment 1 is programs, segment 2 is how to get your srtm data and using the micro dem tool and google earth overlay, segment 3 is about using a terrain image from google earth to paint in the fields, roads and so on while segment 4 covers how to use the dem image in giants editor.

If you have any question or suggestions the feel free to post them down below.

Edit 11th may So after ending the recording I started working on the map again and after a few hours I have come up with this

This is what I ended up with after painting in all the fields roads and forest areas http://puu.sh/hJxbC/aea93456c0.jpg

Here are 2 pictures showing how the map looks like when you use real terrain data it's not 100% accurate but it is close enough http://puu.sh/hJODK/b7e7613acc.jpg http://puu.sh/hJOE3/49877b74ef.jpg
