Tutorial For Unity: Making 3D Terrain
In this tutorial I'll show you how to create 3D terrain in Unity's terrain editor.
Terrain made with basic steps in a few minutes
Step 1: Create a new Unity project by clicking 'File > New Project...'
Step 2: Create a new scene by clicking 'File > New Scene' to clear any previously opened scene. Then save the scene by choosing 'File > Save Scene as...' and name it whatever you like. I'm just naming mine "Main" for simplicity.
Step 3: In the hierarchy panel on the left hand side, right click and choose '3D Object > Terrain'. Now it's time to set up our terrain.
Note: The default settings under the tab (above) is good enough for this tutorial.
Under the paint texture tab, choose the option 'Edit Textures...' and choose 'Add Texture...' to add the above provided texture. Do not worry about providing a normal map as it is unnecessary for this tutorial. The default tiling options are Ok as is. Click 'Add' when you're done to save to and tile the terrain.
Choose the first tab of terrain as shown above. Adjust the brush size to cover a desired area and the opacity is how fast the terrain will be lifted once you click & drag. If you desire you can turn off Lightmap Static as it is not important for this tutorial.
Step 4: Drag and experiment. Hooray! You are done! You can now make basic 3D terrain on the go with Unity's terrain editor.
Experimenting with terrain editor. (imagine putting a player through this!)
New Posts Coming Noon ET Every Day!
From now on, I will begin posting blogs every single day at exactly noon. I will also post on Twitter every day, as well as retweeting, liking, and commenting.
This is the shortest "post" I have ever done.
It's no secret that for the past who knows I haven't been posting regularly. There is a reason though that I should share with you. I have been depressed.
Depressed enough that for a long time I haven't felt good enough to be posting what I love to do. It sucked a lot from me over a whole year. But, in the past few days, I found my trick to get out of this never-ending vicious cycle.
Stop feeding the negative into yourself. It is your choice whether in the present moment you still wish to feel the depression, or accept that your time was lost before and move on. This is really all I have to say in this one. I hope you are well. I will be doing everyday posts from here on out.
Bzoing Release: Where to Go Now
You have probably read the front page but I'll put some extra information here.
Bzoing - Arcade Game has been released onto Google Play!
This is version 1.1.0 of the app currently available on Google Play. In the future I will create better versions of this game.
I really wanted it out ASAP, so it isn't the best right now TBH. I really just wanted to test Google Games before I use it for something bigger.
As for the next update, I'm thinking of adding blue sprites that increase the player's score 2x. New scoring systems like points or lives is also considered. Also, this version now has no sound! Yeah, I thought it was good enough for the first version. But next time I definitely will include some sound!
If you want to download this game, it is on the front page. You know where if you want it. :)
On the next post I will probably cover how I made the background to the icon. I can't find the original image rn but I will in the next one.
