Doesn't get any better than this! (actually it does as there's more to come.. )

9 Texture Splats + base color map and shadowmap with a smooth and seamless visual terrain, ported from Artifex Terra 3D 1024x1024 terrain example.

~40k tris max (9+1 * 4000 terraindetail) with LOD and can be managed further, still beats the 4-5 standard splat texture terrain meshes. but mixing it up would be the best combo!

The heightmap is actually a wip since it is an odd and mostly grayed format (1025x1025) and so I have to make some quick conversion and fixes just to get some preview results. This issue should be fixed (hopefully) by importing it to other terrain tools that can properly read it w/o these adjustments.

Artifex Terra is a nice 3D Terrain Tool, made popular by Ogre3D, perhaps only with the exported format. https://sourceforge.net/projects/artifexterra3d/

demo/download will be available soon..

This is actually tiled splat textures viewed from full view of the terrain and not a single texture! The base color map did help fill some gaps up close.
