Background picture - was I too clever?

    I initially used a 2048x2048 background image that just covers the track and a short distance beyond. Realising that the terrain needs to extend further beyond the track edge, I added a second image (4096x2048) covering more area so it's got fewer pixels per sq meter (yeah, that's real fiddly to get two images to line up!).

    Unfortunately, when I pulled the terrain polygons, BTB blending tiled the original background image rather than grabbing the second image. Do I have to use only one image for the blending?

    Every image has its own name, select from the list appropriate image before blending.

    Oh, bless you!

    "Blend with background image", but after selecting, then you can pick which background image to use.
