Radial Gradient

The Radial Gradient generator creates a simple geometric shape centered around one point in space.

This is useful when you want to create a simply ‘lump’ at a particular location in space. Various kinds of radially-symmetrical shapes can be created, including spheres, diamonds, cones, etc.

Device Parameters

Radius How large an area the shape should cover. The default value is 8km, which happens to completely fill the default terrain extents.
Type Defines the profile of the radial gradient.
 
Spherical: A sphere-shaped profile that falls off steeply at the edges.
Gaussian: A mound-shaped profile that follows a gaussian distribution.
Diamond: A constantly sloped profile that looks much like a pyramid.
Square: A square profile. It stays level until dropping sharply at the edges to zero.
Cone: Constantly slopes downward to zero in all directions.
