Re: [nbos] FM/FWE Retrive information from a saved bitmap?
Wed Dec 10th, 2008

Thanks for the help. I pulled in the existing bitmap to FM and traced over
what I have.

I am wondering, if I make the ocean black, what color should I assign the
land masses so they are brought in as land? I was traced the area of
mountains and was thinking I could assign them a color also that would
correspond to an elevation, as the lakes I made, I can make them black so
they are at sea level so would show water in the import.

To be honest I think that was how I made it in the first place by making the
landmasses originally in FM....

Wish I could remember....

Unfortunately, yes. The bmp doesnt contain elevation information, so
there's no way for FWE to re-create the the map in FWE's format.

If you make an all black bitmap of that size, and import it, it'll give you
an empty map of that size (all water).
