[SUPPORT] Magic Map Material & Maker (M⁴)(Terrain Generator and Advanced Landscape Auto-Materials)

Magic Map Material & Maker (M⁴) was made with cinematic quality and ease of use in mind. Among other things, it is an automatic terrain material for use with ANY Unreal Engine 4 landscape. M⁴ utilizes the latest in tech to achieve production-ready results in a fraction of the time. Just load in a height-map from any terrain creation software (World Creator 2, World Machine, etc.), begin sculpting within the editor, or use the provided Procedural Terrain Creator and M⁴ will instantly apply accurate texturing to all meaningful areas of the terrain.

How do I open the Magic Map panel in the editor? I do not see it in the example project.

Goto the map called “TerrainGenerator_Demo” within the Maps folder, instructions on how to open the Maker Maker Interface can be found by clicking on the “LandmassBP” that’s placed in the world, as well there’s now directions on the map itself inside of tutorial style windows.

A video tutorial of this process can also be found here at the timestamp in the video. :slight_smile:

Edit: the process changed over the update, so I changed it on this post.
