I finally decided to give this PC gaming thing a try. TGC looks fantastic on PC.  Haven’t made a course for a long while and wanted to try my hand a making a few RCRs with Lidar. 

Basically I need to know what programs/apps I need to download.  I watched some YouTube videos, but my eyesight isn’t what it use to be to see exactly what they were using.

Is there a previous link with all of this info?  And I am still not sure how to see if a course has Lidar data.

I also have zero friends on PC, so if anyone wants to add me on discord TBomber#6835

Thanks for the links.  The only issue I am having is that the course file is huge.  I can’t add anything.  On the masking, I have cut out literally everything but the course while editing the mask.png file.  Is there a way to get the Lidar only for the course part itself and the rest of it is cliff?

Granted the course itself winds through a housing development so it covers a lot of real estate.  While editing it literally touches the editable area from one end to the other.  So, is this course just simply too big in terms of area it covers.

Being very aggressive with the mask will give you a course with plenty of object meter left but you will need to do lots of manual sculpting to get it to look good.

Here's what I came up with





It'll be playable but it's going to need a lot of hours to get it to look good.
