SB Mapper is a set of programs designed to create realistic terrain maps for Steel Beasts based on the heightmap. In essence it applies a fractal rain pattern onto the landscape, models the flow of water and grows vegitation in generational patterns. Its not in the downloads section because I am having problems trying to upload the file.

Many thanks to Dark Angel for providing this utility.

Just tried SB Mapper but all I get is a: Run-time error '9': Subscript out of range.

I have tried with different heightmaps and different settings in Mapper all with the same result. :(

Anyone having a solution on what´s wrong?

Were you using the updated .exe?

SB Mapper is a great piece of equipment. It helps you to do terrain maps with small or allmost no effort. Mapper is probably not the right tool for those of you who like to sit hours, days or even weeks working with the maptool provided in SB. And it´s certainly not a tool for those wanting to do a map of a real world area. But for the rest of us... well, try it and if you got it to work, see for your self.

It should be said that I can´t get Mapper to work properly my self, eg. it´s only a few heightmaps that I got Mapper to like and all of them are in format 1024x1024.

How much memory do you have?? I've never tried running it with less than 256mb.

Primary computer: Hp Pavilion - 1.8 Ghz Intel P4 - 512 Mb DDR - nVidia GeForce3 running Win XP home.

Secondary computer: Hp Pavilion - AMD Athlon XP - 256 Mb DDR - nVidia GeForce2 MX-400 running Win 2000 pro.

Got the same result on both machines. Don´t have a computer running Win 95/98/Me, so I can´t test that.
