heli-x files

This repo contains my files for Heli-X simulator.

Warning

I'm new to Heli-X, and am just starting to learn how to build environments/etc.

This repo will evolve to be more organized as I refine things.

For now, I'm just grabbing random heightmap images from Google to generate terrain.

Until I polish things up, the environments may not be immediately usable.

Thanks

Thanks to tweeb on forum.heli-x.info for the great Rumble Canyon environment.

The models/objects used here are based on those files.

See this forum.heli-x.info thread for the original post and download.

I have a version of it tracked here as well: RumbleCanyon

Generating alphamap file from heightmap

I have a small tool to generate alphamap RGBA files from heightmaps. I'm not very good with blender so I'd rather generate them programmatically where possible.

alphamap-gen

Installation

Expects Heli-X to be installed in: ~/HELI-X7/

cd heli-x-files/
