Help with texturing and possibly multi texture
I have a large grid of x,y -> elevation data. I would like to drape a large image (which I have as a jpeg) over it, creating a landscape.
Q1: I can only use jpegs of max 1024 X 1024 for textures. I believe this is a limitation of my graphics card, is this correct? How large can I get with a nicer card ?
My terrain (and jpeg) are way bigger than 1024 X 1024.So it appears to me that I am gonna have to break the jpeg apart into 1024 squares.
Q2: Is it better to break the geometry itsef down into smaller pieces (say 1024 X 1024 ) and texture each individually ... or should I use the multi texture for a singe geometry and several 1023 square jpegs ?
Q3: Is the latter even possible, or am I missing the boat on the multi texture stuff ?
Thanks in advance, Michael
