That's a difficult skill to learn.  Basically, you have to think of warping a 3-dimensional grid that represents your sim.  The four levels that you assign textures to correspond to vertical layers in the grid.  You have the freedom to put a different texture in each of those layers.  The tricky part is visualizing what happens when you adjust the heights of each of the four corners of that grid. Think of what it would look like if you were lifting one corner of a floppy air mattress at a time, maybe. The grid (the mattress) tilts and twists as you do that, so its four layers intersect the land surface at different elevations.  It's hard to explain in words, but makes sense once you experiment with it.
