Terrain and Basement Wall issue.


Recommended Posts

Lowered the terrain around the house, but the "dirt" is still up the basement walls. I can not get the side poured concrete walls to expose, or the rear exterior walls to expose.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Appears the file size is too large?

I followed the video instructions to the letter. You can see three total zones. The bottom is set to -12". The middle (front door/1st level) is set to zero inches. The top zone is set to -120 (the height of my basement walls).  This is the result I get.

I attempted to change the values of the levels, but all attempts still result in the dirt "sticking" to the poured concrete walls, and the framed rear walkout walls.

After many hours of video and searching the forums here, I was unable to find a solution.

Any ideas?

ANSWER:  In this particular case there was a checkbox (apparently is set to default with the option checked) for keeping terrain "flat". 

Don't recall exactly where it was and I am a bit too nervous to "click-around" the terrain options to find it.  :unsure:
