Two questions Mark:
1. Can you produce maps with an "angle" relative to North (say, top of sp map facing East)?
2. Does it really work?

1. Can you produce maps with an "angle" relative to North (say, top of sp map facing East)?

Yes, DEM maps assume that the "top" of the map is North. But you can alter this by using a image processing program like Paint Shop Pro to rotate the exported image 90 degrees left, right or whatever degree until you have your desired angle....which is why I highly recommend getting Paint Shop Pro if you ever intend to do any game development work.

2. Does it really work?

Oh yes it does.

Aokay

Shadow valley is created using that method. I know it doesn't look very "bright" or "interesting", but that area really IS that lifeless on Google Earth imagery of that area.

It's been seven years, and I'm going to update the tutorials; since *sigh* MicroDEM has changed a lot -- and I didn't keep the older versions; along with the way NASA/USGS organized their global digital elevation maps.
