[GIMS Evo] Blending terrain textures.
Just want to first thank @3Doomer for making GIMS evo and his incredible programming skills that gave us the ability to make such awesome stuff with 3ds max.
- To start import your terrain model into 3ds max.
- Convert the default material to GTA type.
- Change the shader of the material to
Terrain / terrain_cb_4lyr.
- Add your diffuse textures and corresponding bump textures (if you have bumps). Make sure the bumps correspond to the diffuse textures by their number (e.g. Diffues 1 & Bump 1 go together). NOTE: You don't need to have all 4 textures.

- Light Blue(0, 255, 255): Tex4
- Add a
Game Meshmodifier to your mesh, and collision if you'd like.
- Export your model, and you're finished.
Make sure your textures are embedded or use a texture dictionary.
