There is a tutorial  on Heightmaps, lightmaps & backgrounds available for download at https://www.facebook.com/groups/amandelbulbmaniac/files/
A comprehensive practical guide to adding non-fractal material in MB3D - Lightmaps, Heightmaps and Backgrounds. With tips on adding figures, animals etc convincingly post-render. It is aimed as a reference for the non-mathematical: beginners and the more experienced alike.

My aim was to create something like a chapter from the manual MB3D has never had, drawing together available knowledge and tutorials (with links as relevant) on these topics. This isnít just an update of my original notes but a complete revision with new content. It also adds knowledge from others in the community: including new clarification I received from artists at both DeviantArt and Mandelbulb Maniacs Facebook Group while I prepared it.

In particular, Iím grateful to matze2001/ Dortus Gunst for contributing a list (with links) of different ways he has found to use heightmaps that go beyond the multiple tiling of the defaults. Gary Webb, and Lee Oliver (from Mandelbulb Maniacs) added detailed advice on adding heightmaps as floors or other textured or shiny planes. Oxnot also gave me guidance on handling the often neglected Heightmap2IFS. I am also grateful to those unnamed Deviant and Maniacs, who have also been quick to respond to my questions.

The provided link is only to a list of files.
I am not a Facebook member so I can not see the complete list.
Can someone provide the actual link to the specific file mentioned in the original post?

I don't do facebook either, so just assumed it was one of those "must be logged in to see" links.

If I am mistaken in that, I apologize!

Perhaps knokin will see this and answer.
