Heightfields for terrain?
« on: November 25, 2010, 02:51:44 pm »

Does FIFE support heightfields for terrain? Are they rendered in 3D, or do they make use of 2D sprites?

I would like to create a game with 2D sprites for most stuff, but with finer fidelity in other areas such as terrain elevation than is usually offered with a pure 2D (or 2.5D) solution.

Examples of 2.5D games that mix 3D terrain and 2D sprites include the Maxis games SimCity 3000 and The Sims (and maybe others).
