New terrain design

I created a neww design using 3drads default terrains.

To do this yourself, you first need to convert the terrains to a format for editing.
I did this by first using mview.exe to open and save in text format.
Then i used deep exploration v2 to open them one of them and save it as a .3ds format file.
Then i loaded them into 3dsmax r3 for editing.
In 3dsmax i simply cloned the one terrain into 3, then created tunnels between to connect them.
I also added glass dome's to all 3 as well to lock all players into the terrain.
To use these in 3drad, they were saved as poly based rigidbodies, just like normal static terrains are.

Tested them and all's well.

I have some world parts installed into one of the 3 dome areas.

I'm open to submissions from you people for the other two domed areas.

The project is a tank based FPS supporting 6 player tanks & 4 AI controlled bots, not sure what they will look like when finished.
All i need is more terrain parts like buildings bridges what have you for the other two areas to suit tank warfare in low poly designs.
Trees and rocks are fine too, just keep everything on the low poly side to keep proformance up.

ah, that's not something i thought of
i personally use http://www.bundysoft.com/L3DT/
it's basically a terrain generator that you can customize how you want, and its free, but it saves them as rigidbodies i think
is there even any difference between terrains and rigidbodies?
btw here's a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJZIzDIunlc

The game's idea is actually neat! It would look and play nice in a simple engine like 3DRad! I really like the type of games where you have to aim with keeping ballistics in mind. Good luck

@timestopdev  3drads terrains are just custom poly based static rigidbodies

Hi Tin looks great, I have used the these terrains in lots of projects because they are great asset. From the ground they look great and are a good start.
