Hey everyone, I wish to add a satellite image to the map as a reference while doing my field and terrain creation (kind of like an overlay). Is there a way to do this? Sorry in advance if it is a simple thing to do but for some reason I can't work it out.

Yeah you could make a super big plane and texture it.
What I did some years ago instead was to use Photoshop, and extract layers from it: so i had a layer with just dirt roads, and one with the fields, etc.
Then I saved each layer as grayscale to a terrain GDM (e.g. beachSand). So then in the editor I had beachsand for roads, and grass for fields, and concrete for water, and so on.

Thanks Jos. I will look at trying that out :)
