Updated the LIDAR section at the end of the DEM tutorial with new website/image details.

With regard to the LIDAR, don't you find that the clutter from the buildings and trees makes life harder?

No, not at all I only use the DTM ( Digital Terrain Model ) files which only show the terrain and have no building/trees clutter in them and as such eminently suitable for FS map.Dem.png's, though sometimes I do experiment with certain aspects of GE and DSM (Digital Surfacee Model) like reducing the pixelDensity just to see how much extra information I can get from the file. Obvilously not suitable for use in game but interesting none the less.

Below is an image showing the same area as a DSM and DTM at a resolution of 25cm the black line at the top left of both images is the same river and if you look carefully on the right hand side you can see the path to the church.

This question has been asked several times before and the answer is the same,

No, I haven't made any video tutorials and do not intend to make any, the instructions in the tutorials are quite staightforward, the key is to take your time and read the instructions carefully and thoroughly and not  miss out any of the steps in attempt to speed up the process (as someone did when making a video of the dem tutorial and it all went wrong).

With the Splines tutorials it is best if you experiment on a spare blank map to get used to the various settings as some operations once done cannot be easily reversed.
