An Introduction To Houdini’s Mapbox Node

Indie-Pixel Walks Through Houdini Game Tools’ MapBox Node for Landscape and Level Design.

Mapbox is a map editing tool that lets you create landscapes and level design terrains. MapBox supports the creation of OpenStreetMap-based environment assets in Houdini 17, which can be accessed through its powerful API. The new “mapbox” node simplifies this process with simple commands to extract data or get started quickly on your terrain project!

It’s always exciting when we see innovative features like these added into our game engine because they provide endless opportunities for creativity – especially since freelance artists are often left waiting months between releases due out content packs from other toolsets (ease/speed).

Houdini offers a library of tools that can speed up your game development workflows in SideFX Houdini. There are over 30 different functions and features, all available for use after they’re complete through The Game Development Toolset which is not part of the regular workflow but rather issued when needed with an export option so you don’t lose any data or presets on completion – saving time!
