I'm trying to get the grey scale for the caldera map any suggestions on how I can do this?

If someone can give me the format of the ved files, I can easily create a ripper.

The VED files encode the hieghtmap as an embedded BMP file inside the VED file.

Coax...check your ICQ.

Here is how to directly get it:

Open as follows:
RAW format (Paint Shop Pro can do this)
Header offset: 40 bytes
Size: Probably 1024x1024 - most LDA maps are this size
Color Chanels: Single (Greyscale)
File Structure shouldn't matter since its greyscale, but I know Interweaved RGB order works.

If for some reason the file seems off hoizontally, open with no Header Offset and count the number of pixels not part of the picture at the top first row.

Thanks peeto for the greyscale. Very cool that trick works great, I just tried it for clay hills. I'm going to make an advanced map making guide and that will be tip number 1 and I'll give full credit to you of course RC.
