    hey as the topic suggests I am curious as to how to get different textures to blend well on the ground. I am having alot of trouble with my ground and I was wondering if any of you could write a mini tutorial or point me in the right direction. I lay my ground out, texture it, displace it a bit, then try to add dirt, roads, rubble, different textures, etc. and I just can't seem to get it right. thanks.

    I wish I knew the technical name for it, but it's alpha overlay or some variation thereof. Someone else should be able to tell you exactly how to do it though.

    You can only use textures with "blend" in the name, and use Paint Alpha with the displacement tool

    if you need help finding the textures type into the filter "blend" and it should come up with all the blend textures also use "tf" in the keyword filter.

    Could you post a few screenshots of what your scenery looks like in game?...then I might give you some comments on how to improve it.
