Scalable & moveable, big enough to reach beyond the default mountain range, down to encircling the tintable area on the floor. I optimized them for faster performance, but left the backs so you can place them multiple times, which seems to have the best effect. The tex could be better, but I'm squeezing this in while my other machine is rendering some animations & I'm rushing it a bit... still, they look pretty good for a start I think.

Applications: Set up to encircle a city like Seattle. For airplane animations in flight over mountain ranges. Smaller sizes could be used for canyons or a volcano. A water sheet added to this would look cool.

I've made a little movie to demonstrate. http://www.moviestor...Servlet?id=1695
Your suggestions are welcome.... particularly technical ones like, how to delete mods from a package? Just delete the folder inside Props folder? I put all my mods into 1 folder, but I'll try it anyway, then you wont get stuck with my crappy 1st version. I'll post this version later today or tomorrow unless i run into problems.

Here is the mountain range prop.
http://files.filefro...;/fileinfo.html
It contains 2 versions of the mountains, a darker normalized one and a lighter one that can accept custom images.

I hope it works okay, let me know if there's any problems.
cheers

Its setup to accept custom images, so if you want snow covered mountains, just take a pic of an appropriate Google earth mountain range & apply it to these mountains.

They cover the rather bland out area of the set quite nicely, good one Bongo

Just what I needed for my first MS film. Thanks Bongo!

For the noob, how do I install it? (yes, I have the workshop, if needed)

Thanks again!

It's packed as an .addon, so from Moviestorm's main menu, select "Settings" and from the "Add Ons" tab, click the "Install" button and navigate to the file. MS will do the rest.
