How to update terrain around floor plans?

Recommended Posts

I've created a plan with several floors. The lot rises about 10 feet from the street which is curved.  The back of the lot is a right angle.  How can I add a terrain map with contours to the file floor plans?  Would it make sense to start over and then import or copy from the first file?  I don't want to re-enter that work

No, what you do is to build the terrain a step (elevation object) at a time and once the terrain is correct in its rises and falls you then set it TO the structures you have drawn using the "Building Pad" input box in the Terrain Specification Dialog Box. It requires patience, there is not "trick" but rather just being methodical, checking each elevation change in camera views until you get it just so.
